Samsung Electronics announced its Samsung Smart Home service today, which is set to be launched in Korea and United States first, followed by more countries throughout the year.
The service allows consumers with the Smart Home app to connect and control smart home devices such as TVs, lights, mobile phones and more.
“We are excited that the launch of Samsung Smart Home makes the connected home a reality today and allows our customers to live a smarter life,” said Dr. WonPyo Hong, President and head of the Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung Smart Home lets people live better, worry less and be smarter with their devices and appliances. We also have grand plans to enhance more and more parts of the home experience, especially with a view of expanding it to areas with high growth potential such as home safety and energy management.”
With the Smart Home app, users can, for example, say “Good Bye” to the connected devices around the home and they could be automatically turned off. In addition, users can also control and check the status of their home appliances from anywhere, whether it be at work, a party, or anywhere else.
The app will be available for download for smartphones via Samsung apps and Google Play as well as for Tizen-powered Gear 2 smartwatches. Users can sign up for the app with their Samsung account.
