The Internet of Smart Things

I backed this project on Kickstarter a while ago and it has finally shipped after many long months of anxiously awaiting.

SmartThings places the world of connected things at your fingertips. Easily control the everyday world and make it more intelligent, convenient, secure, safe, efficient, and fun.

It comes with a hub and a bunch of different “things” that allow you to automate things in your house with mobile apps.  Some of the things include power sockets, temp controllers, moisture sensors, light switches and more.  I purchased the developer edition which means that I have access to all of the SDK in order to come up with some neat stuff on my own (yeah, along with all the rest of my geeky projects).

My first order of business is automatting lamps in my house.  Following that I was thinking of something with motion sensor and the cats.  Very descriptive, I know.

I’ll let you know how all of this goes.
