The power of making! Our motto. Our story.

Creating a tech-startup has many challenges. Product design and testing, mass production, certification and software issues are all part of the process and we take every precaution to prepare for eventualities. Right from the very start, we worked with industry leading technologies, standards, as well as experienced consulting engineers and suppliers to ensure we can produce products with unmatched quality.

Michael Barnick

The Story of Quantum Integration started with Michael Barnick, the company’s founder. Michael was an engineer at Apple Computers, leading UX and Encryption projects for Steve Jobs. He eventually left Apple to become a founder at SonicWall which was acquired by Dell in 2012. Many years and start-ups later, he founded a high-end home automation company called Quantum Integration in 2008.

As an engineer at heart, Michael always wanted to build his own smart home, and finally did so around 2010. During construction however, he learned that integrating IoT efficiently was overly complicated and extremely costly. He immediately realized that the market needed a simple and cost-effective integration solution that did not require programming or expensive proprietary equipment.

These cumulative experiences resulted in the creation and re-invention of Quantum Integration in 2018, with the vision of easily connecting a device to anything electronic and make it “Smart,” without requiring a lot of engineering knowledge, and with the added power of IoT automation and Smart Home technology at an affordable price!

Our simple drag-and-drop app creation process allows you to control your device from a central location, on anything you own that can run an app or a webpage. Also, our integration platform allows the simple creation of custom IoT devices, using add-on circuits and a central application Q-Server which allows simple programming of tasks to be performed using multiple networked devices.

Quantum is also a very powerful learning tool, and its educational potential is unlimited. It’s a plug-and-play solution with the ability to add customized circuits and network a sophisticated number of IoT devices without any need for programming.

Timeline Quantum Our Story

As an avid Arduino and Raspberry user, Michael found many challenges in developing even the simplest project. Existing open-source libraries are notoriously buggy and lacking documentation! Creating a project where devices communicate with each other is almost impossible or very time consuming.

Our Quantum platform addresses this by using IoT technology that allow devices to communicate in a large system from the ground up. Instead of relying on buggy open-source libraries and years of programming experience, we created a drag-and-drop interface to easily automate and connect devices. Thus, we created a truly powerful platform and wireless automation product available on the market today, immediately aimed at early adopters of technology and electronics hobbyists.

This vision has finally been realized! Quantum devices are so simple to install and use with an incredibly low barrier to entry. With very little development time required, all you do is identify the device you’re connecting, follow the development wizard to create the firmware - then upload it to your Q-Client Builder Base.

Some people may be wondering if we are going to compete with Arduino. Unlike Arduino and other competitors, Quantum is unique in its simplicity of creating and networking IoT devices and electronics. Our flexible user interface is more powerful than anything currently on the market and requires no programming, while still being able to support and integrate many third-party products, services and platforms.

The Quantum team is passionate about IoT technology and dedicated to providing the best products to empower makers of all skill levels to have the freedom to create amazing wireless electronics devices of their own. Users of the Quantum platform have automatic access to detailed documentation and a growing library of carefully crafted tutorials, example projects and videos to inspire and help grow their skills. Just add your imagination and have fun. This is the power of making!

“The system is both powerful and versatile, giving just about every user — whether they have any coding knowledge or not — the ability to create and design their own apps from scratch for just about any smart home project. The only limit is the creators’ imagination!”
- Michael Barnick, Founder and CEO
