Samsung SmartThings is an ecosystem of smart home devices that allows users to connect and control their home devices through a single app. The SmartThings Ecosystem includes a variety of devices, such as smart appliances, security cameras, door locks, lights, and more, that are designed to work together seamlessly.
The SmartThings platform is designed to be open and flexible, allowing users to connect devices from a wide range of manufacturers. The SmartThings app serves as a central hub for controlling all connected devices, with features such as automation, custom scenes, and remote access.
In addition to the app, SmartThings also integrates with popular voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, allowing users to control their devices with voice commands. Samsung also offers a range of SmartThings-compatible products under its own brand, including smart TVs, refrigerators, and other appliances.
Connecting Your Smart Appliances
Samsung offers a range of SmartThings-compatible appliances, such as refrigerators, washers/dryers, ovens, and dishwashers, that can be connected and controlled through the SmartThings app. These appliances can provide alerts and notifications, allow for remote monitoring and control, and can be integrated into custom automation routines.
For example, you could connect your phone and smart washer and synch them with the SmartThings app so they can work together and give you full control of your laundry through your phone. SmartThings can be set to automatically know how much detergent to use and when to use it allowing for levelled washes each time. From there, all you need to use is the Laundry Planner and Recipe feature on the app to find the best cleaning cycle and its duration.
