A new open source platform called SmartThings has started its journey on the Kickstarter website, and has been designed to help you created and connect physical objects to the Internet and smartphone applications.
The SmartThings system consists of a hub and monitors that allows you to connect a variety of items. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the SmartThings project and see it in action.
“SmartThings makes it easy to connect the things in your physical world to the Internet. You can monitor, control, automate, and have fun with them from anywhere – at home, office, or on the go.
We’ve made it possible to install apps that interact with your SmartThings, as well as online and other services. This unlocks a world of possibilities and and unlimited potential to make your life easier, more convenient and fun. We call these SmartApps.”
