As the Internet of Things evolves, attention has been paid to adding intelligence capabilities, some of them via semantic technologies. However, many of these developments are still too device-centric and more needs to be done to make the IoT more people-centric. One important aspect in this direction is supporting spatial constructs that are meaningful to humans. We present the OpenThings platform as a basis to provide meaning via semantic technologies and demonstrate how it can be used to
