Today at the Samsung Developer Conference, SmartThings is unveiling its Samsung Smart Home. This four-room, 1720-square-foot house is the centerpiece of the conference’s main floor and highlights a few of the many possibilities available in a SmartThings home today, as well as some exciting new integrations that will be available soon.


In addition to the dozens of smart lights, locks, TVs, stereos, other connected devices showcased in the house, SmartThings is also demonstrating an exciting series of brand-new integrations with Samsung appliances. These include a refrigerator, washing machine, air conditioner, and vacuum cleaner–all of which can be controlled, automated, and monitored directly from the free SmartThings app.

The custom-built Samsung Smart House is open to the public (including non-SDC attendees) today from noon until 4 p.m. On Wednesday and Thursday, several SmartThings founders and staff members will be on hand to guide media members and SDC attendees through the Smart Home. 

Among the more than 30 connected devices featured, guides will also highlight how these integrations between SmartThings and Samsung appliances can make homes safer and smarter: 


Fridges just got cooler.

Samsung smart refrigerators will soon be able to send owners a push notification when certain things happen, such as the door being left open, or the temperature rising or dropping beyond a certain threshold.

This Samsung fridge will also have a built-in LCD screen and speakers that can offer people voice alerts about important events that SmartThings has detected beyond the kitchen (ex: “There is moisture detected in your basement,” “There is unexpected motion in your garage.”).


WasherDryerNo one likes hanging out in the laundry room. Never wait for a load to finish with the SmartThings-powered Samsung washer/dryer.

People will soon be able to use the free SmartThings app to power their Samsung washer/dryer remotely, or automate them to run when certain things happen–such as when they leave home, fall asleep, or at night when electricity is generally less expensive. You can also receive notifications on your smartphone when your washer or dryer has finished a cycle, and built-in reservoirs for detergent can operate automatically and send you a notification when they’re running low.

Air Conditioner

ACLive green and save green by using the free SmartThings app to customize how your Samsung air conditioner works.

With just a few taps in the SmartThings app, you can trigger your air conditioner to automatically adjust the temperature when you leave home or fall asleep, and built-in power metering will show you how much power your air conditioner is using each day, week, and month. You can also use SmartThings to help you maintain a healthier home environment by using the air-filtering function on the air conditioner and setting up SmartThings to send you push notifications depending on air quality measured by the air conditioner.

Robotic Vacuum

If you have a Samsung robotic vacuum, you’ll soon be able to go into the free SmartThings app and train your vacuum to run when it’s most convenient for your. You can also opt to receive notifications when this little guy is done cleaning, when the reservoir needs to be emptied, or when the filter needs to be cleaned.

In addition to helping your smart home stay spotless, the robotic vacuum can also keep it safe and secure: By using the vacuum’s built-in camera and microphone, you can use the vacuum to act as a roaming security guard: By manually controlling it, you can send it to check on areas of your home if SmartThings detects motion, unwanted entry, or other events, and then see images and audio of what’s going on.

To see demonstrations of these latest integrations and more, stop by the SmartThings-powered Samsung Smart Home at the Moscone West Center in downtown San Francisco. (If you can’t make it out here, check back soon for a video.) The Smart Home will be open to the public today until 4 p.m., and open to SDC attendees until 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 13.

SmartThings, Samsung, and the Open Platform

Friends, Today is a big day for SmartThings. I’m excited to announce that SmartThings has been acquired by Samsung and will operate as an independent company within Samsung’s Open Innovation Center group. It has always been our goal to create a totally open smart home platform that brings together third-party developers, device makers, and consumers. We’re thrilled that Samsung fully supports this vision. We will continue to run SmartThings the way we always have: by embracing our community of customers, developers, and device makers and championing the creation of the leading open platform for the smart home. Our growing team will remain fully intact and will relocate to a new headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. In short: SmartThings will remain SmartThings. (more…)

The Next Generation of SmartThings is Here

We’re excited to announce that the next generation of the Samsung SmartThings Hub, a new lineup of products, and a brand-new SmartThings app experience is available today. Our mission has always been to create the easiest way for people to turn their home into a smart home. In fact, we started SmartThings out of a desire to know the answer to a basic but deeply personal question: is everything OK in my home.  We believe our latest product evolution delivers on this ambition. Here's a look at what's new and improved: The New Samsung SmartThings Hub and Sensors The new Hub enables video streaming, has battery backup that lasts up to 10 hours, and can run certain functions locally to improve performance and continue to operate without an internet connection. The Hub will continue to support ZigBee, Z-Wave, and local internet connected devices. Two USB ports and embedded Bluetooth will support future expansion. The new collection of Samsung SmartThings sensors are now smaller and have been redesigned with a sleeker, more contemporary look to fit seamlessly into the background of your home. The New SmartThings App Experience The free SmartThings app has been redesigned for easier navigation and a more intuitive experience.  You can now directly organize and control your connected devices by room, view live streaming from cameras, quickly set up and run routines, explore the marketplace of nearly 200 devices now compatible with SmartThings, and so much more. One of the exciting new features of the SmartThings app experience is Smart Home Monitor– an integrated home monitoring solution. Smart Home Monitor allows you to receive alerts and take action when SmartThings detects unwanted entry or motion, smoke or fire, leaks, or other important activity. Existing customers will be able to configure Smart Home Monitor from their dashboard within 24 hours after downloading the updated app. With Smart Home Monitor, our Hub version 2, and a connected camera, you can also get instant alerts with an accompanying video-clip when these unexpected events occur.  Video buffering in the new hub means clips can start prior to the event so you can see exactly what is happening in your home. Video clips will eventually be a premium feature within Smart Home Monitor but are available in beta as a free trial through 2015. After the free trial, a premium version of Smart Home Monitor, which includes video clips, will be available for $4.99 per month. Live streaming will always be free. The new SmartThings app will be available for free download on iOS and Android starting today, with Apple Watch, and Gear S apps to follow. Be sure to check out our post for a more in-depth look at the app’s new features. We would like to extend our heart-felt thanks to our customers, supporters, and developer community. Your commitment, feedback, and ideas are what make our open platform truly special. We hope you you enjoy the new SmartThings experience.
