SEOUL – World’s leading smartphone brand Samsung introduces a little white box called “internet of things” through which you can control your entire house, from temperature to lights to locks on the door.
The Smart Things products will turn your house into a remote control fortress.
When technology companies aren’t busy mixing out new smartphones or toting the latest wearable technology, on other hand Samsung is figuring out how to automate your home.
It indicates the time when all your home appliances will be connected to the internet meaning they can be remote controlled and can alert you when stuff goes wrong.
Samsung has been particularly vocal. The company’s CEO said back in January that all of its products will be connected to the web by 2020.
Now the Korean tech giant has revealed its Smart Things Hub will go on sale in the UK on September 10th, along with a range of products for making your home smarter.
Said range includes a motion sensor, moisture sensor and multi sensor (vibration, temperature, etc) that will turn your house into a digital fortress.
There’s also plug sockets and LED lights to think about.
All of the above are maintained through the Hub and controlled through an app on your smartphone or tablet.
Want the lights to dim and music to come on when you come home? Well, you can set routines and schedules to make sure they do just that.
Alternatively, strap a presence sensor to your person, walk through the door and do it automatically.
Kitting your home out with all this gear won’t be cheap, but Samsung says it is pursuing an open platform.
