Sandbox

No Device, No Problem!

With hundreds of lock brands out there, it is not possible for you to own every devices. This makes validating your code tricky. To solve this, Seam provides sandbox devices that accurately reproduce real device behavior. Use them to test your code, run CI, execute scenarios, and more.
