[This is NOT about any particular connectable devices, or how to connect or use them, or SmartThings compatibility. I’m just curious about this/these company/companies, and figured I’d ask here, because I know there are a lot of smart peeps here who also like to try different technologies, etc.]
Can anyone give me a quick and simple explanation of these product/company/technology names, and how they are related to each other?
Like, are these all names of different divisions within one company, or of different companies under one umbrella company, or simply different names for the same company?
I have one of the Merkury RGB LED Wi-Fi Smart Bulbs from Walmart, and I can control it (directly) from any one of at least three different mobile apps (named Geeni, Smart Life, and Tuya Smart), and indirectly through Alexa, and SmartThings.
This is not necessarily intended as a discussion about any of their hardware or software, but please feel free to mention them as is necessary in any explanation you may be willing to offer.
