Bixby frees you to focus on what matters the most. It quickly learns what you like to do and works with your favourite apps and services to help you get more done immediately.

 

So that you can do more and have the best of a connected living experience, Samsung has launched the Bixby Home Platform (BHP) for controlling smart home devices with added intelligence using Bixby Voice.

 

What used to require multiple voice commands is now possible with only a single voice command using the intelligence of BHP. Bixby works in tandem with Samsung’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform i.e. SmartThings to provide hands-free & convenient Smart Home Control via voice. Now, Bixby has taken this frictionless convenience a notch higher with the introduction of the Bixby Home Platform (BHP).

 

 

Read below to understand how Bixby helps with hands-free Smart Home Control and how the new Bixby Home Platform enhances this convenience further.

Bixby + SmartThings

 

Samsung’s SmartThings ecosystem connects millions of IoT devices and supports ever increasing number of manufacturers and developers.  Using Bixby one can control all these devices with simple and intuitive voice commands.

 

 

 

Here is an illustration of how to control all living room lights at one go using Bixby:

 

 

 

 

Here are other voice commands through which Bixby can help user control the Smart Home devices in a typical day:

 

 

Bixby Home Platform – What’s in it for the Smart Home User

 

Imagine a situation where the user does not have to remember & spell out individual commands needed to set the AC temperature. i.e. remember that the AC is off, then turn it on first and then set the desired temperature.

 

Now just ask Bixby to “Set the temperature to 21C” and with the advanced home platform, Bixby will figure out all the steps needed to fulfil the user’s intention and ensure the AC temperature is set to 21C.

 

 

 

Bixby Home Platform – What’s in it for the Smart Home Device Manufacturer

Intelligent device control has been made possible by BHP. An intelligent block  is plugged between Bixby Capsules (which interprets natural voice utterances) and SmartThings.  Commands that needed to be issued and executed as per the device state, now can be intelligently programmed by the developer through BHP.

BHP provides easy to use drag and drop tool called Bixby Home Studio to define the intelligent control flow for the device. Control flow can be defined based on the state of the device, model of the device, capabilities supported by the device, etc.

 

Using Bixby Home Studio, device developers can define the device control flow logic, test it with the connected devices and deploy the flow logic into the production for real usage. Below image shows the AC control flow created using Bixby Home Studio.

 

Nodes seen in the control graph above makes the flow based on the state of the AC device for voice command “Set AC temperature to 21”.

BHP is live for Samsung Appliances and users can experience the convenience right away.  Device manufacturers connected to SmartThings ecosystem can leverage BHP and enhance Voice control experience of their devices very soon. Bixby Home Platform and studio will soon be available for all the device manufacturers in the Year 2022.
