“Samsung’s SmartThings platform promises to connect you to all sorts of devices via the so-called Internet of Things. With a new hub, new partnerships with companies like Chamberlain and Honeywell, and a commitment to increased connectivity from Samsung products in the future, SmartThings is a smart choice for those interested in smart homes.” – Reviewed.com
The new SmartThings Hub includes a more powerful processor, a local app engine, and built-in backup battery power. This will enable SmartThings to continue operating in the event of a power or Internet outage.
A plethora of new devices will soon join the many connected products that already work on SmartThings’ open platform.
