Party Planning Made Simple
At its recent Bespoke Home 2022 event, Samsung introduced how all six services of SmartThings Home Life come together to enhance the user experience through the lens of Jason, a friend getting ready for a housewarming party. For instance, Jason used SmartThings Cooking to prepare shrimp quesadillas, SmartThings Clothing Care to freshen up his party outfit, and SmartThings Air Care to purify the party space. Demonstrating the day-to-day uses of SmartThings, Samsung showcased how SmartThings can simplify a user’s to-do list.
A Smarter Home Ecosystem
The biggest benefit to having a smart, connected home is its ability to make life more comfortable. The ability to have total control over all appliances in the home brings convenience, productivity and even more time to the user’s day. Samsung’s vision for SmartThings Home Life gives users spare time to stay more in the moments that actually matter by combining the power of the following SmartThings services:1
- SmartThings Cooking2 provides personalized meal plans and recipes based on user preferences and what is in their refrigerator. It also automatically adjusts cooking modes and temperatures on cooking appliances based on recipes.
- SmartThings Energy3 helps users monitor, report home energy consumption in real time and save on their electric bills.
- SmartThings Clothing Care4 syncs with the Bespoke AirDresser as well as Bespoke Washer and Dryer to provide optimal clothing care recommendations.
- SmartThings Pet Care5 syncs with home appliances such as the Bespoke Air Purifier and Bespoke Jet Bot AI+ to keep homes clean and help users check in on their pets when they are out of the home.
- SmartThings Air Care6 works with Samsung’s air purifiers and air conditioners to monitor air quality in and outside the user’s home in real time.
- SmartThings Home Care7 continuously monitors the user’s devices, checks their status and usage patterns, provides information about accessories and enables convenient online purchases.8 This AI-powered service works with virtually all Bespoke appliances.9
Sustainable Solutions for Home
SmartThings continues to innovate in order to simplify everyday tasks so that users have more time to enjoy their lives at home. In line with this vision, Samsung’s recent partnership with global technology company ABB is an important step in expanding the Bespoke Home Life experience throughout the entire home. For instance, users can now easily monitor and control ABB’s portfolio of devices, such as ABB cameras, sensors and comfort systems integrated with SmartThings.
