The GearBrain is a pioneering recommendation engine which helps users research, discover, buy and learn how to connect and optimize smart devices. It helps consumers find products for their home that are effective, efficient, and crucially work with each other — the most comprehensive find engine for smart devices. We can help you find smart devices that not only work in your home, but also those devices that you wear and take with you in the car, to the office or on the road.

Our latest version of The GearBrain will also help you troubleshoot any issues you might run into while connecting these devices together, so you can integrate them into your life easily and quickly.

What is The GearBrain?

The platform includes over 300 different categories of smart devices — basically everything you could ever want for your smart life — along with all the details you'll need. We've included technical specs, links to customer service support, owner's manuals, setup guides and warranty information, all digitally stored in one place, simple to find when you need them. Even better, you'll never have to hold onto any of these materials again if you register your devices in your profile on The GearBrain. We will keep it safe and sound for free.

How Does The GearBrain Work?

Results are quick and provide easy access to product information and purchasing options.GearBrain

The GearBrain is simple to use. First, open a free account. Once you've registered, you can visit any of the four categories: Products, My Gear, Brands and Resources. Here is a little information about each category:

  • In Products, we'll help you find smart devices based on specific product categories. For example, you can easily find product information on Samsung SmartThings Hub or any smart device based its UPC or model number. Soon, you will be able to find products based on specific details — such as those that work with Google Assistant — as well as devices that will work with anything you've stored in the "My Gear" section.
  • In "My Gear," you'll find your profile, along with a list of all of your smart devices . You can even group products according to the room where you have them working in your home. Once you'll added your devices to your profile, you can then check out product pages like a setup guide or owner's manual. These will always be available, and readable, for any device from a tablet to a PC, laptop to a smartphone.
  • In Brands, people can find devices specific to a manufacturer or company if they have a brand preference.
  • In Resources, you'll go directly to product information for any product, including the warranty and technical specs. You'll also be able to find reviews, how-to videos and product FAQs in this section as well.
