Building a Programmatic Interface to the Physical World

What we used to do.

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.

How it all began.

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.

So we started Seam.

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.

Who we are.
