Smart & Connective

About us

Smart & Connective is a French IoT company created in 2016 and operating worldwide, specifically designed to offer new solutions to energy saving issues.

Our story

The adventure began in South-East Asia, where Ambre and Guy started to develop their home-automation company. Their work and reputation brought new issues and challenges along the way, especially to help out hotel and villa managers, eager to save energy quickly and effectively. They soon realized the growing needs in terms of energy saving, to cut costs in a sustainable environment. This is why they decided to launch Smart & Connective with their own IoT solution, accompanied by Rob, lead programmer.

Today settled in the South-East of France (famous for new technologies industry), Smart & Connective constantly creates new devices to provide an ever-better service.
