SmartThings: Make Your Dumb Home Intelligent

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 27, 2012


I love the idea of an intelligent home, one that has a lot of functions that can be programmed and controlled from far away, but the overall cost of such automation has generally been pretty high. Thanks to SmartThings, you might be able to do almost the same but at a fraction of the cost.

SmartThings is a new system that will let you link up your house to your iPhone or other devices via the Internet. It promises to let you control and receive notifications from a variety of different devices, such as remote outlets, open/shut, motion, and presence sensors. There are more on the way, such as door locks, thermostats, smoke alarms and flood sensors.

SmartThings was launched as a Kickstarter project, and with 25 days left of funding, it has already surpassed its $250,000 goal. Currently, it stands at $320,000. The basic kit gets you the hub and three sensors for $149(USD). For $500, you get 10 sensors and won’t have to pay any monthly fees to use it.

It’s a great way to double-check if you’ve locked your front door, switched off the AC, or turn off a light from anywhere in the world.
