New in the Shop: The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro

One of the great features of the new Samsung SmartThings Hub is the ability to connect a camera to see what's happening in your home when you're away. Today, we're excited to announce that the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro is available for purchase in our Shop! A perfect companion to the brand-new Home Monitoring Kit, the SmartCam allows you to check in from anywhere to view live-streaming video footage of your home. You can also get instant alerts with accompanying video-clip footage whenever unexpected events occur, as detected by SmartThings-connected devices. Unlike other home monitoring solutions, SmartThings only captures video clips whenever an unexpected event occurs, so you can maintain privacy while having complete peace of mind. Here are a few of the many things that are possible with Samsung SmartThings and the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro: • See that your kids return home safely from school • Check in to see if your dog is on the couch • Capture video footage if there's unexpected entry or motion • Make sure the dog walker or service provider arrived • Check in on what your pet is doing • ...and so much more Note: 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. (more…)

Hello! We've got some good news for anyone looking to enhance their smart home: We've just updated a few items in the SmartThings Shop (and will soon on to include several new and updated products and Kits. The new SmartThings devices have an improved industrial look and design, are ZigBee-based, and several come with mounting plates to offer customers more installation options. Here's a look at what's new: SmartSense Open/Closed sensor This small and versatile ZigBee device is $45 and can help secure your home, offer you peace of mind, and add convenience to your daily life by letting you know when doors, windows, drawers, or cabinets open and close.
