About Us

How We Started

The idea for Konnected started with a personal need – In 2016, Nate and his family were renting a home in California that had a mid-90’s wired alarm system that was out of service. After hearing about a few break-ins in the neighborhood, Nate was determined to modernize the pre-existing system so it could provide some peace of mind. Using his skills as a Silicon Valley software engineer, Nate found a way to connect his older wired security sensors to SmartThings, enabling smart home monitoring via his smartphone.

Our Mission

Our mission at Konnected is to put homeowners back in control of their home monitoring with products and services that make smart home monitoring open, accessible, and affordable. Konnected’s technology makes it economical and easy to retrofit or "upcycle" traditional wired alarm systems so they can be monitored and controlled from anywhere, giving you eyes on your home at all times and integration with the smart home platforms that you already love.
