Samsung Smart Home

Did anyone notice the SmartThing App is free?

Why is the fridge the first place marketing types think should be the control center?

I like the idea of a roaming camera on the vacuum robot!

Perhaps because Samsung makes most profits selling appliances?

By using the vacuum’s built-in camera and microphone, you can use the vacuum to act as a roaming…

… upskirt cam? LOL! :smile:

Easy… a Kitchen is a place that is often populated, and so makes some sense to have a control panel there.

In the kitchen there is a large appliance with a large, unused surface area, at a height that is convenient for a standing individual to see/use. Finally, this appliance is ALWAYS plugged in and running, and therefore always has power available to run the control panel.

You have good arguments, but in my family if you are in front of the fridge you are in the way.
