Alex Hawkinson, CEO of Smart Things, is on stage. you may recall Samsung purchased Smart Things.
talking about the need for a smarter home
the house doesn't have a voice to tell you what's going on
it started out as simple as the idea of remote monitoring
then it went further. what if the home could then DO something when it detected an issue?
that's what's new in the connected home
we know that nobody is going to connect their home with devices from just one company
even a company as big as samsung ... we need an open platform for everyone to use and interoperate with
Smart Things started this idea of devices working together
and now Samsung is carrying the torch
the possibilities are endless.
it starts with open standards and a full set of documentation
Smart Things's repo on GitHub is the 70th most forked. that's huge.
and it's not just small companies. we're talking about Amazon, BMW, Cree, Philips, Netgear ...
Samsung is using its own tools to integrate smart appliances
it's not just simple apps. it's full solutions like ADT home security monitoring
