It cool that because of my time here, that I can envision how to build something like these myself!
[quote]SmartThings isn’t just one product, but an open platform software developers and gizmo makers can build into. Developers can create apps and devices that feed into the system to do stuff as simple as switching your lights on from your phone or as nuanced as starting your coffee maker when a motion detector sees you’re out of bed after 7:00 a.m. SmartThings has about 3,000 people signed up to develop for the system.
The startup does sell its own hardware kits for the basic stuff though, and it’s all controlled with a hub device that you plug into your Wi-Fi router. That hub can automatically talk to other devices in the SmartThings ecosystem
