Dhruv Patel and Parth Shah founded Smart Node.
With more than nine years of experience in smart living solutions, Dhruv Patel is a visionary leader and the co-founder, chief operating officer, and chief decision maker of Smart Node. Dhruv was instrumental in creating Smart Node's creative approach to smart living from the company's founding.
He was a software developer with an emphasis on mobile app development and smart node cloud prior to that, in addition to being the co-founder. His time spent as an assistant system engineer at Tata Consultancy Services was a significant component of his previous career path.
Dhruv obtained a Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Electrical Engineering from GCET. His diverse background, which includes time spent as a self-employed software consultant, has greatly aided Smart Node in its mission to transform the smart home automation industry.
Parth Shah, the co-founder and chief revenue officer of Smart Node, earned a bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering from G.H. Patel College of Engineering and Technology. He began his professional career as a business development executive with Diamond Infosystem Ltd. Parth thereafter relocated to Vertical Dots Technologies to assume a pivotal role as Partner.
Smart Node employs between 11 and 50 people.
Dhruv worked for TCS before launching the current business, and Parth spent 10 months working for a local cable company. Subsequently, they created an IOT product to increase the cable industry's capacity for production. For this, the pair was also recognized at the Switch Global Expo in Vadodara with the Best Start-up award. This altered the company's course.
Dhruv and Parth noticed that the internet was becoming more affordable and readily available during this period, and that Indians' discretionary income was rising. They therefore changed their experience to bring IoT to the house and produced home automation solutions in order to take advantage of this possibility.
They tested the beta version's stability in their own houses as well as friends' and family members'. With confidence, Smart Node introduced its product to the market after going through multiple revisions for improvement. Early on, they installed and served clients directly in Vadodara, where they gained useful knowledge about user experiences.
By entering the retrofit home automation market, SmartNode hopes to improve and streamline people's lives and make them more intelligent and better. The objective is to become a major force in the Internet of Things (IoT)-based electrical industry, setting the norm for innovation and technical growth.
'Smart Node' is the brand.
Experience the Pleasure of Intelligent Living, is the company's slogan.

In the wake of the uproar over the Myntra logo, the online shopping app changed the logo across all of its materials, including its website and app.
