Remember back in July when we said that Samsung was looking to acquire Internet of Things company SmartThings for around $200 million?
That’s another big exit for a company that got its start on Kickstarter.
Apt for their name, SmartThings builds… smart things. Light switches. Water sensors. Door locks. All packaged up and prepped to hook into their iOS/Android app, which lets you control and monitor these devices from afar.
The company says it will continue to operate independently and under the SmartThings brand, though they’re packing up and moving into Samsung’s Palo Alto branch.
