SmartThings Launches Open Platform To Let Your Phone Control Almost Anything
The SmartThings platform can already help solve practical problems in your life such as alerting you when you forget to close the window when a storm is coming, adjusting the thermostat when you come/go, turning your lights on and off, closing the garage door when the car leaves, etc. SmartThings embraces and depends upon the developer and inventor community to continue to produce new and exciting use cases of its platform. So far the open community has created a SmartThings-controlled pet feeder, a baby mobile controlled via voice sensor, a movie theater remote to dim the lights and start the popcorn, and many more.
The SmartThings Developer & Inventor Toolkit includes everything needed to create and rollout new SmartThings, such as an open community at build.smartthings.com that enables collaboration with other developers and inventors around the world;open source examples for more than 50 SmartApps; training, documentation, and support from the SmartThings team; and afull web-based, integrated development environment (IDE). So, devs -- what are you waiting for?
