Our team’s experience ranges from Nest, Sonder, GitHub, and our startups. We scaled server infrastructure at the scale of tens of millions of users, shipped well-known hardware devices, and directly deployed tens of thousand of IoT devices across the globe.
Through these experiences, we saw that while many devices exist today, no solution ties them all together in a way that makes it easy to interface with them.
It’s secure, built for scale, and enables developers and businesses to interface with third-party devices in the real-world. We hope you like it.
