Connect my house! A first look at the SmartThings hub and sensor platform | GigaOM Tech News

Connect my house! A first look at the SmartThings hub and sensor platform | GigaOM Tech News | The SmartHome | Scoop.it
This weekend I unpacked a SmartThings hub and sensor package as part of my quest to really understand the how connected devices will evolve in the home. Six days in, I’ve already learned so much about the connected home that I could write a post a day until August. I may just do that. But before I go into what I’ve learned about the connected home market, I want to share the impressions so far from my time with the SmartThings hub. As one of the first of these systems on the market seeking to combine devices using many different wireless protocols with an easy-to-program interface, it’s one of several options that buyers who want to rush into the connected home might consider. Others are Revolv (used to be Mobiplug), which is expected on the market this Fall; the Lowe’s Iris system available today, a custom Insteon system like what my colleague Kevin Tofel has built; or even the AT&T Digital Life service that launched in April. SmartThings shipped its first devices in April to people who supported its KickStarter project and it is taking pre-orders on the site. Tyler Hall, with the company, said that SmartThings will have a new crop of hubs and sensors available in the coming weeks but that because they are fulfilling backorders the wait for a hub may be as long as three months. A package containing a hub and six sensors will sell for $299, but users will also have the option to buy additional sensors. Let’s get to the review. Click headline to read more--
