Founded in Silicon Valley 2012, SmartThings is set on building the best Open Platform for Smart and Connected Homes. The system consists of a central controller (Hub), a cloud platform and client applications. Market launch has been very successful and new markets and countries are continously added.
One of the main challenges was to find the right balance between superusers who want to program their own houses and the fast growing market of people looking for a way to easily connect their home. Another big challenge of building an Open Platform is keeping API’s and connections with Third Party Developers efficient and clear in an ever evolving Digital World.
