Austin Evans Met the SmartThings Smart Home at SXSW

Ever wish you had the perfect smart home setup? We made it happen for YouTube sensation Austin Evans at South by Southwest.

We wanted everyone to find out what life with SmartThings can be, so we turned to Austin Evans, a very cool YouTube star, to document it for a few days. We rented an Airbnb in Austin, Texas (yes, Austin in Austin), and tricked it out with tons of smart stuff. Not only did Austin get to experience the magic of lights automagically turning on when he entered a room…

…but he didn’t even need to carry his keys, because we got him (and the house’s owner) set up with a Kwikset connected lock!

As a bonus, we added some Samsung speakers that played Austin’s favorite tunes whenever he needed them. Here are some more photos of the smart home:


The smartest home in Austin.


Our motion sensor helped Austin literally light up any room he entered.


Austin could attach anything to a smart outlet and never have to worry about forgetting to turn it off.
