Hobbyist IoT Platforms

Quantum Integration's IoT Platform Gives Electronic Hobbyists More Control

— June 27, 2020 — Art & Design
While the majority of smart home systems are designed to be user-friendly enough for the average person to use, Quantum Integration is distinguishing itself by introducing the first IoT platform specifically designed with electronic hobbyists in mind. As Quantum Integration founder Michael Barnick says, "Single-use IoT devices like 'Nest' are no longer enough for those wanting more control. The Quantum IoT platform is unique in that it allows easy integration of any number and type of device."

With this platform, hobbyists can take advantage of being able to build custom automation projects with remote temperature sensors, lighting controls, security systems, robots and more. The Starter Bundle includes a Q-Server and two Builder Bases, which can be used for an endless number of projects.
