Lock The House Door Or Turn On The Lights With A Smartphone [Video]

Monitor and control what's happening in the home from anywhere in the world.

SmartThings is a Kickstarter project with big plans to become an all-in-one home system. The high-tech hub connects with sensors and is able to sync online and via a smartphone. Currently, it’s only able to monitor movements, but in the future, it hopes that the system is able to lock and unlock doors, turn lights on and off, monitor thermostats, or even turn on the coffee machine when you wake up. Furthermore, the platform will enable users to control and monitor everything in their homes from anywhere in the world.

With 22 days to go, SmartThings has already doubled its pledged goal of $250,000. Watch the video below to see what SmartThings could eventually evolve to become:
