The Idea

In 2016, Nate, a Silicon Valley software engineer, transformed his family's non-functional mid-90s wired alarm system in their California rental into a smartphone-enabled smart home monitoring system, inspired by the need for enhanced security after hearing about neighborhood break-ins. This innovation laid the foundation for Konnected.

Kickstarter Launch!

Fueled by positive feedback from the SmartThings community, Nate starts selling DIY kits online so that the SmartThings community can re-create his smart alarm system conversion.  Later that year, the Konnected brand is introduced on Kickstarter with the first manufactured Alarm Panel product.

Ship & Innovate

After a successful Kickstarter, Konnected shipped the first Alarm Panels, built an e-commerce presence, and gathered feedback from thousands of customers as we iterated on the product.. Later that year, Konnected introduced the Alarm Panel Interface, a way to connect in-parallel to a traditional alarm system.

Bringing It On-Shore

We re-engineered the Konnected Alarm Panel to be sturdier, sourcing high-quality components abroad and establishing assembly and final QA in North America.  It’s still one of the best-selling products in Konnected's catalog today.

Go Pro

The community asked for Ethernet, and this year Konnected made waves with the introduction of Alarm Panel Pro, a revolutionary IoT board featuring Ethernet, Wi-Fi, PoE, and 12 zones per panel. This game-changing product continues to be Konnected’s best-selling product.


A surge of stay-at-home DIY projects led to record-breaking sales tempered by operational and supply-chain challenges. 

Over $1 Million Raised on StartEngine

Konnected raises over $1 million on StartEngine and uses the funds to expand the team and invest in R&D to accelerate their mission.

Opening the Garage

Konnected now makes your Garage Door smart with the introduction of the Smart Garage Door Opener. Also, over 50 partners world-wide are now actively installing and reselling Konnected products via our new partnership program.
