NEEO launches NEEO PRO
We are here in San Diego, Southern California at the CEDIA trade show. Today we will announce NEEO for the PRO-channel (installation professionals). This is exciting news and a big moment for NEEO! I’m writing this post because I wanted you to be the first to know and I want to make sure all questions you possibly have around the launch of NEEO PRO are answered.
Here is a quick overview of what we are launching today:
The NEEO PRO version is featuring even more powerful hardware and a whole set of PRO-channel specific software. Some highlights are the admin interface for installation professionals to maintain systems of any size remotely. Another highlight is the announcement of the Multi-Brain feature. This allows integrators to build systems of any size. Thanks to its architecture there is – compared to the traditional control systems - no single point of failure.
NEEO PRO is compatible with over 60,000 devices (same database as every NEEO). With the launch of NEEO PRO, numerous integrations for the professionals are being announced. Some highlights, such as Kaleidescape, Lutron & Control4, are on demo at the NEEO booth #2840 at CEDIA 2018.
What’s changing for the ‘Consumer’ version of NEEO?
In a few words - things are growing faster and everyone will benefit from it. We have extended the team to accomplish this new line of products. Many of the features developed for the PRO version will also make their way into the consumer version or will at least unlock new possibilities. One great example is the Multi-Brain system. Whilst it was designed to ideally cover the PROs needs - we are happy to announce that we will make a free consumer version of this available for everyone with the coming firmware release!
Where do you sell NEEO PRO?
NEEO PRO is exclusively offered via our network of authorized dealers. It’s important for us to create a healthy environment for all of our partners and all NEEO users. All the leads for NEEO PRO that come in are forwarded directly to the dealers who all get additional customers that way to grow their businesses healthily. We are also making sure every authorized dealer is well trained, so everyone has the right tools and gets the best experience possible.

This is it for today. Wish me good luck. I will now go to the show floor and will unveil the NEEO PRO. A bit nervous, but very proud of what the team came up with!
Hello NEEO team,
Can you give posts numbers (e.g #1,2,3,,.........450) Why? This helps to reduce your data base by one not replicating what has been posted before but one can refer to a previous post.
Now here is my point : am trying to have a discussion with Fonzo which should be important to everyone but being overlooked because everyone just skips to post comments about the main topic (NEEO Pro) but miss the discussions 😕 Our subtopic is about how CEC works!
I detailed him how I connect my devices using the AV Amp as the master controller for CEC connections. Even the NEEO is connected to the AV Amp! But now he is not happy on how to connect the PS4.
What I dig from his posts is that what he wants to emphasize is that "wireless" is best when it comes to a Connected Home (IoT) 😕 but I think otherwise. I don't use ir or Bluetooth in my setup and WiFi is only for the iPAD and the other mobile devices. NEEO should implement their CEC driver as a general driver but not cater for individual devices! How : they should steal an idea or two from these guys here : KWIKWAI
Now to finish off this topic, here is an interesting video of a connected home : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azNK_Tgkb30
The video also helps to explain what is PRO and BASIC 😲

Raphael Sorry to say that .. But NEEO sucks. You proised a lot of things. Most of them should work since NEEO has been released. Now you promised more frequent updates ... Since three months I didn't heard anything from NEEO ... what's worng?
From a Product in Beta-Stage like NEEO I expact at least every two weeks a Update until the product is ready for the market.Reply
I’m also one very disappointed buyer of the remote. Still a lot specification that are missing from demo videos that were showed in the beginning. Instead you wanna launch a new product before making the first one completed. And over three months with no updates and very unstable remote. My remote reboots and sometime stop working loosing WiFi every second day. It’s not my WiFi that causes this. Lack of Bluetooth and hand recognition. Lack of customization of hardware buttons and display buttons.
A total disaster investment.Reply
Raphael Now it's 3 months since you posted the NEEO Pro post and notething visibale happend. Of course, I didn't expect that something changes - you have told it to us so often and notething happend ... please surprise us with some updates.
It would be so nice when there are some updates and improvements ... like the simple actual time thing on the remote.Reply
I've been at CES this week, and see no sign of Neeo on the official trade show floors or at any of the related events at other venues around Las Vegas. (The first time I saw Neeo was at a CES-related event three years ago.) Not encouraging for the future of a home theater remote control maker.Reply
Obviously not then.
I think the title "NEEO launches NEEO PRO" is a demotion when the product hasn't actually launched and has no updates. This could take another 4 years maybe?
Im told Control4 will be updating their UI and remote this year (finally) so unless this is a collaboration effort NEEO could miss a huge opportunity here IMOReply
Be aware that NEEO Pro will not happen as it was announced here, it's going to be even better. Read this blog post for more information.
If you want to know even more join us at the Control4 booth at ISE 2019. Booth number #10-N130.Reply
I have to weigh in also with a sigh of disappointment with the other users here that are saddened by the lack of expansion and control that this fabulous remote was supposed to afford us.... I have recently purchased a CAAVO and right out of the box I am able to control more units that my highly touted, “top of the line, better than anything out there in the world” NEEO Black Cat........ you guys should be embarrassed!Reply
