Resin.io helps developers control and monitor their work on connected devices, often called Internet of Things devices.
Seattle startup Resin.io has reeled in $9 million from investors, including GE Ventures, Ericsson, DFJ and Aspect Ventures.
The company helps developers control and monitor their work on connected devices, often known as Internet of Things devices. Resin’s system allows developers to manage software and quickly update multiple devices for anything from security patches to new features.
Founder Alexandros Marinos said he came up with the idea when he realized how easy it was to build applications and send them to mobile devices. That was not the case for connected devices.
“When it came to Internet of Things applications, it felt like I jumped back into a tech paradigm that feels like the ’80s,” he said.
