The Internet is like the air, available everywhere. By connecting products and devices to the Internet, they can be accessed from anywhere and instantly - welcome to the Internet of Things.
By connecting everything around us, the Internet of Things has an enormous potential for a far-reaching impact, but the difficulty of the technology has thus far hampered progress.
Thingsquare aims to fundamentally change the Internet of Things by making Internet of Things technology dramatically easier to develop and use.
Founded in July 2012 by a team of Internet of Things pioneers, Thingsquare boasts over 25 years of combined expertise in the area of Internet of Things technology.
Thingsquare is a privately held, bootstrapped startup. Thingsquare's head office is currently located in downtown Stockholm, Sweden.
Thingsquare's customers are product companies and developers of wireless and Internet-connected products that want world-class software to attain exceptional results, hardware manufacturers that want to provide leading open source software for their devices, and product manufacturers looking to add smartphone access to their products.
Our customers to date have been in the areas smart lighting, home appliances, connected cities, home electronics, energy services, and hardware manufacturing.
Thingsquare has two flagship products:
Thingsquare forms strategic partnerships with select major hardware and device manufacturers to be able to provide our customers with the best devices on which to run Thingsquare software.
The Internet was built on open standards and open source software. We believe that the Internet of Things also should be built on open standards and open source software.
Open source software means that the source code to the software is available in a form that makes it possible to extend, rewrite, and further develop the software. For Thingsquare, open source software is not only an exceptionally powerful tool, but also a way for us to demonstrate the high quality of our software.
Open source software is at the heart of Thingsquare. Thingsquare actively develops, uses, and contributes to open source software. We routinely use and rely on tools like git, gcc, Eclipse, and Node.js. Members of the Thingsquare team founded, coordinate, and contribute to the open source Contiki project.
