After being showcased at the Consumer Electronic Show in January, three months from now, Samsung has launched its new product, capable of making connections with the other appliances present at your home such as TV’s, Tablets, Refrigerator and others.
Initially it’s been launched in US and the South Korea but soon would be released in other parts of world where the company has its consumers placed.
However, the App will only work with the latest appliances, depending upon the compatibility of the appliance. This new product will make ordinary homes more connected and integrated
Moreover, if you plan to upgrade to the latest Samsung double-door smart fridge (the T9000), then you’ll be able to operate it from anywhere, shut it down remotely while on holiday, and adjust its temperature. Likewise, if your washing machine is the latest Samsung model, then you’ll be able to program wash and spin cycles to coincide with arriving home from the office.
Samsung says all of its 2014 model smart TVs will also work with the app and that before the end of the year, functionality will extend to cover its new range of smart lightbulbs and its upcoming smart oven, too.
“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. Won-Pyo Hong, president and head of the Media Solutions 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.”
However, that’s for the future. The development of the connected home and its supporting technologies is still at a very early stage, yet, unlike a lot of other tech developments on the horizon — such as Google Glass — consumers appear to be excited about the prospect of the Internet of Things and about homes filled with smarter appliances.
