SmartThings & Instacube are now officially a thing.
We built SmartThings as an open platform, because we knew there would be a world of useful, beautiful and creative products that could be made smarter with SmartThings.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce a unique partnership between two Kickstarter projects - SmartThings and Instacube - that shows the power of this integration and collaboration.
Together, we're making Instacube smart.
We will be working with the creators of Instacube to integrate the SmartThings technology - imagine the possibilities:
- Elegant, visual notifications for the events in your life that matter most, including someone arriving at your door, your pet leaving, or a reminder that you’ve left the garage door open right before you head to bed - without taking your phone out of your pocket.
- A beautiful, touchscreen interface for controlling the physical world around you, such as your lights, doors or air conditioning
- The presence awareness of SmartThings can drive Instacube to turn on or off and to display the photo stream of the user who is present enabling many intelligent interactions.
- Integrated SmartApps such as “Morning Routine” that can turn Instacube on as an alarm, get the coffee brewing, and turn on the bathroom lights
If you love SmartThings, please consider backing Instacube.
One last note. We’re thrilled by the 200 makers and developers who have already expressed interest in adding SmartThings into their products, ideas and innovations. We’re so excited about the partnership with Instacube that we want to make sure nobody misses out on the opportunity to work with us. We have expanded our Maker and Developer reward tier to 300. And if we get 300 Maker and Developer backers, we’ll unlock the Maker Mania badge, including a special benefit for makers.
So please spread the word. Everyone benefits if more things in our life become smart.
