I’ve been trying out Samsung’s foray into the Internet of Things (IoT) with a few of their SmartThings. Generally I’ve found them useful for security and linking them with If This Then That ( I have the starter pack which contains:

  • A motion sensor.
  • A multi-purpose sensor.
  • A presence sensor.
  • A connected plug socket.
  • The SmartThings hub.

Being able to access the status of the things on my phone has made me wish that our burglar alarm was equally connected. I made a little video describing how the guinea pigs are very pleased with the multi-purpose sensor.
