To celebrate the launch of its new Connect API program, smart home product company Netatmo has created a contest to design and develop an app that makes best use of the platform. The company produces three products, a smart thermostat, camera, and weather station, plus a variety of accessories.
The Netatmo Connect program opens these products up to connect with other apps, Netatmo products, and with third party smart devices. Netatmo already provides individual APIs for its products, which are in use by 14,000 developers.
Netatmo Connect links apps and products to Netatmo’s range of smart hardware and software
The competition is open to all developers who have already used a Netatmo Connect API prior to July 1 2016, which is also the closing date for entries. The rules are broad, and the app needs to be in English or French, and use the Connect API. Apps made for Android or iOS are accepted, and will be judged on design, the user experience, usefulness, and innovation.
A complete range of Netatmo’s products is the prize, and the winner will be announced on July 14 2016. To find out more, visit the competition page here, and to sign up for Netatmo Connect, visit the company’s website here.
