We are connected to our phones, our cars can be connected to hotspots, and now we can be virtually connected to our homes. Samsung’s revolutionary technology, SmartThings, enables users to control hundreds of devices in their home from the palm of their hand, anytime and anywhere.
It seems as though technology is becoming exponentially advanced each year. Now that we have a wealth of information readily available at our fingertips whenever we are on the go with our mobile devices, we can now use that technology to have near complete ‘smart’ control over our homes. Samsung recently introduced SmartThings, which is a technology that enables users to power their connected house anytime, anywhere. By connecting various devices throughout their home (thermostat, lights, sound system, alarm system, locks, motion sensors, appliances, etc), users of SmartThings can remotely and ‘smartly’ control multiple aspects of their home from the palm of their hand.
Why do people need SmartThings? Tech specialist Patrick Mahony provides a thorough explanation for why this technology is needed. SmartThings enables users to monitor their home, detect any disturbance via motion sensors, power outlets, etc, and notify the homeowner immediately of any potential problems (or harmless visitors). SmartThings allows users to combine this monitoring control with the power to control lights, appliances, locks, thermostats, etc so that users can remotely alter their in-house settings for various reasons, whether that be to make sure the oven is turned off, turn on the lights to defer burglars, or simply reset the thermostat. Patrick Mahony explains that SmartThings is able to connect hundreds of devices, so the possibilities to technologically modernize your home are endless.
