About Us

Building the API to the Physical World

Our mission is to weave the world’s homes and buildings with devices and sensors, to enable developers to build novel applications.

Why WeStarted

Our team’s experience ranges from Nest to Sonder. We scaled server infrastructure at the scale of tens of millions of users and directly deployed IOT devices across thousands of locations on multiple continents.Through these experiences, we saw that while many smart devices and sensors exist today, no existing solutions ties them all together in a way that makes it easy for developers to interface with them.Furthermore, we felt that many of the solutions did not have a consistent stance on privacy and security.So we started Seam.It’s secure, built for scale, and enables developers and businesses to interface with devices in the real-world. We hope you’ll like it.- Dawn & Sy
