SmartThings is an amazing platform for creating solutions for each individual user. And we are at the brink of entering the new age of Internet of Things. The next step however is that we somehow get access to the data collected by the individuals and use it on a commercial level to solve problems of the consumers and drive towards improving commercial efficiency. Privacy of data may pose an issue, but I am sure there is a lot of information that can be collected without impacting end user privacy.
Its probably too early, with the limited sensors and their functionality at this point (not to forget the very limited coverage of homes with sensors) but I was wondering if anyone thought in this direction? How can this data be made available to companies who might be interested in leveraging data to enhance their services and provide better solutions to the end consumers?
