Samsung Electronics has announced Samsung Smart Home, a service enabling Smart TVs, home appliances and smartphones to be connected and managed through a single integrated platform.
The Samsung Smart Home brand will be commercially rolled out across Samsung devices and appliances in the first half of 2014.
Pursuing its vision for a connected world, Samsung will also collaborate with third-party partners to make the Samsung Smart Home service extendible to their products and services, building the foundation for an ecosystem of connected home services.
“With Samsung Smart Home, we are bringing our capabilities as the world’s leading manufacturer of smart devices to make the connected home a reality for consumers today,” said James Politeski, president, Samsung Canada.
“In 2014 we will continue to roll out better home services to our consumers so that they can continue to Play More, Do More, Share More.”
Samsung Smart Home’s functionality enables users to control and manage their home devices through a single application by connecting personal and home devices—from refrigerators and washing machines to Smart TVs, digital cameras, smartphones and even the wearable device Galaxy Gear—through an integrated platform and server.
Samsung Smart Home will initially provide three main service features enabling users to connect with their devices from anywhere, anytime: Device Control, Home View, and Smart Customer Service.
