Shaping the future of IoT with the Developer Portal
Are you a Developer with creative ideas for Smart Home & IoT but don't know where and how to test them? Then the Conrad Connect Developer Portal is just the right playground for you. The portal is created from developers and for developers in order to enable you to quickly test your new ideas and even profit from them. Find ways to combine Smart Home devices with real-time services and let more than 370 000 people use it. Ordering a Pizza by the voice command or calling firemen when the smart smoke detector goes on are just a few examples of what's possible.
Why not give it a try? It's free, it provides a ready-made infrastructure for developing new things and you will be able to get experience in the latest cutting edge IoT technology.
With the Service Marketplace, we are the first Smart Living platform that bridges the gap between smart devices and real-life services. For example, smart fire alarms, water leak sensors or WIFI-plugs are combined with a security-assistance service or electricity comparison services, or with a service for the automated ordering of consumer goods. For the user, this results in a level of automation that has never been there. And for IoT enthusiasts, unlimited connections of smart devices into the real world are made, because the Service Marketplace is anything but a closed system.
Bring your own IoT service ideas to life
If you have the appropriate coding knowledge, for example in Node.js and HTML, you already have all the prerequisites to be a pioneer in IoT service ideas. The Developer Portal has everything you need to publish your own ideas on the Conrad Connect platform. There are developer tools and infrastructure available - and of course thousands of smart devices. The software solutions will work with Conrad Connect-enabled smart devices and web services without trouble.
