At SmartThings, we are dedicated to making every home a Smart Home - and as the IoT platform of Samsung, with millions of users and connected devices, we are well on our way. We strive to create an easy-to-use, secure, and above all intelligent IoT solution for the home that delights our customers. Our fun, intelligent, and creative teams need your help to make our things a little more connected, and a lot smarter.
We're SmartThings, a Samsung-owned company operating independently from offices in Mountain View, CA and Minneapolis, MN, and we're creating the easiest way for anyone to turn their home into a smart home.
Like the smartphone revolution before it, we believe that smart homes are going to have a massive impact on how we interact with the world around us. As the things in our homes wake up, allow us to control them, and are able to automatically react to our needs and preferences, it will become easier to secure our homes, save energy, and stay connected to loved ones. Once the smart home technology spills into larger communities and countries, the potential to reduce global emissions, improve service industries, and create a safer, smarter planet will be within our reach.
