Samsung buys SmartThings for $200 million
I was curious to know what SmartThings was since it would give insight into where the mobile industry is headed.
Turns out SmartThings is a successful kickstarter project. SmartThings is positioned as a home automation platform which allows you to control appliances through a mobile application.
As a proof of concept SmartThings manufactures kits, which sell for less than $200, which can be attached to different appliances which allow you to control the devices through the SmartThings mobile app. The mobile application supports IOS and Android.
