2 key IoT platforms to keep track of!
Smartthings. Offers forum support to build projects and a web based IDE. Uses SmartThings “ThingModule” (Zigbee Radio, Antenna, Signal Amplifier, and the SmartThings firmware that is ready for direct integration into manufacturer devices). SmartThings Cloud using IP connectivity (either Wifi or Cellular but bypassing any local hub integration) via SmartThings APIs and OAUTH2. Focused on home automation and offer 3 kits (
althought I cannot find them on the site)* covering
Home security (lights, doors, garage doors), Home watch (environment sensing – temperature, control, etc) and Family life – pets, access, monitoring…
Project of interest – by Danny Kleinman – firstname.lastname@example.org – IR remote hack w ThingShield Arduino.
Xively – part of LogMeIn (IoT cloud). Company info: LogMeIn is headquartered in Boston’s Innovation District with offices in Australia, Hungary, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the UK.
