SmartThings at South by Southwest

We took our smart stuff (and people) to Austin, Texas for SXSW. Here’s what happened.

We had a blast at South by Southwest Interactive this year. It’s one thing to set up a smart home, it’s another to take that smart home on the road with us. But that’s what we did, thanks to the Samsung SmartThings Airstream:

The inside was fully equipped with motion sensors for lighting and notification demonstrations.

It was a party by day (complete with a delicious wall of donuts imported from The Church Key, an LA restaurant):

We added a little smartness to the SXSW party.

And it was a partay by night:

The bar’s mood lighting went with our craft cocktails.

Thanks to our wonderful brand ambassadors, it was informative:


A quick info session.

And thanks to our wonderful brand ambassadors AND a photo booth, it was a ton of fun:


Our photo booth had customizable lighting…


…and, of course, props.

Thanks for having us, Austin. We had a blast.
