GearBrain's IoT Configurator Solves Interoperability For Smart Devices

GearBrain's compatibility find engine for smart devices makes it easier for users to find, buy and connect smart devices that work with your existing connected devices in your smart home.

The first-of-its-kind platform created to solve interoperability for owners of smart homes and devices, is our patent IoT configurator. What is an IoT configurator? It is a platform that helps a user find compatibility of two or more products across a single ecosystem. For instance, if a user wants to find a smart light that is compatible with their smart locks and thermostat, they tell us what smart lock and thermostat they currently have and then do a search for a smart light on the platform. The search results would show all the smart lights that are compatible with these two smart devices. We call our IoT configurator "The GearBrain."

Free to use, The GearBrain, solves one of the biggest stumbling blocks facing the growth in the smart home/device market – helping consumers know which devices work together. The GearBrain also serves as a compatibility find engine, so consumers can bypass endless online searches and instead easily find information, education, and recommendations from its vast database. These include product features and how-to videos, along with a Q&A platform for users to ask questions about any smart connected device and get answers from experts, including GearBrain's editors.

The smart device community, as well as manufacturers, retailers, service providers, installers, and primarily consumers, will reap the benefits of this unique one-stop marketplace, resulting in better-educated purchasing decisions, and saving people time, effort, and frustration. Strategic simplicity is built into The GearBrain's configurator and compatibility find engine, with comprehensive search results made available in seconds. And if for some reason there are no results that meet the user's search criteria, users can ask GearBrain to do an advanced search which would return a more definitive answer within 24 hours.

Mark W. Westlake, CEO & Founder of The GearBrain as well as our content site (GearBrain), which publishes news, product reviews, and how-to articles for the latest connected devices and systems designed for the home, car, and office explains, "Consumers gravitate toward convenience and understanding. Think about how easy it was and still is to set up the Amazon Echo when it first came to market. But not all smart devices are like the Echo. Interoperability is problematic and standing in the way of adoption and growth. The GearBrain solves interoperability problems and more. Our platform allows users to research, discover, buy, and connect with all kinds of smart devices seamlessly on one platform for the first time ever. It can also help manufacturers, retailers and installers simplify the purchasing, integration, and management of these smart solutions."
