Turn your house into a Smart home

08 September 2015

Samsung announced a SmartThings IoT hub that allows individuals to monitor house applications from a mobile device.

In the hope of expanding the use of connected devices, Samsung has developed a device that allows individuals to control applications within the house from their mobile device. Using a range of sensors and accessories, the SmartThings hub can be used to remotely control heating, lighting and home sound systems. 

The SmartThings hub is an open platform, meaning it won’t just be able to control Samsung products but a wide range of appliances from different manufacturers. 

The hub will make home life simpler and easier. It is controlled by a local app engine, so if you loose internet connection, you can still remain in control. The app provides an opportunity for individuals to tailor the hub. For example, lights can be set to turn on automatically when you walk through the door, or a fridge can send you an alert when you are low on milk. 

On the 10th September 2015, Samsung will make available a starter pack for £199, featuring the Hub, a door close sensor, a motion sensor, a power outlet switch and a presence sensor. Other devices can be brought separately for £30 each, such as sleep monitors and cameras, with further add ons in the future.
