Samsung, India’s largest and most trusted consumer electronics and smartphone brand, today expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) product portfolio in the country with the launch of the connected SpaceMax Family Hub™ Refrigerator, empowering life in the kitchen.
Building upon consumer insights and feedback, the SpaceMax Family Hub™ Refrigerator comes with features that automate meal planning, lets you see inside the refrigerator from anywhere, and connects with other smart appliances at your home including smartphones, letting you watch your favorite TV show on the refrigerator’s massive entertainment screen while working in the kitchen. The SpaceMax Family Hub™ Refrigerator is here to transform life in the kitchen and reshape expectations toward refrigerators.
SpaceMax Family Hub™ turns your kitchen into a connected living fun zone for the whole family. While the Home Control feature allows consumers to control and monitor their connected appliances such as Samsung FlexWash washing machines and Samsung Galaxy smartphones from the Family Hub™ screen, the Food Management feature lets one view what’s inside the fridge anytime, anywhere without opening the door. To ensure family fun never ends, Home Entertainment enables access to a seamless music experience with high quality speakers and lets you mirror your smartphone or TV to the Family Hub™ screen. To make family time more engaging, family members can integrate their schedules, share pictures and text messages by using The Family Connection feature on the refrigerator’s touchscreen. With Bluetooth, you will not miss any call even when you are cooking or baking in the kitchen. All these features make SpaceMax Family Hub™ a truly smart refrigerator.
Revolutionizing the refrigerator category, the next generation Family Hub™ provides best of both worlds for those interested in sophisticated technology along with functionality. While the refrigerator retains smart features of the flagship Family Hub™, the new SpaceMax technology adds more storage space inside the refrigerator without affecting the exterior dimensions.
Delivering a seamlessly connected experience to consumers, the SpaceMax Family Hub™, sports a 54.61 cm (21.5-inch) FHD touch screen display with 25-watt speakers for non-stop entertainment.
“Leveraging the interconnected world that we live in, we are delighted to introduce the IoT-enabled SpaceMax Family Hub™ refrigerator that is part of the next technology revolution. SpaceMax Family Hub™ will become the epicenter to control, manage and view other connected devices in a home and its intelligent features will enable busy families to stay better connected to one another. With this new addition, we are expanding our IoT product portfolio in India,” said Raju Pullan, Senior Vice President, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung India.

The Power Cool & Power Freeze features offer rapid cooling performance at the touch of a button for the fridge and freezer compartments respectively while the Auto Ice-maker ensures plenty of ice all the time without compromising on freezer space and makes ice automatically.
Samsung’s SmartThings app also allows you to easily monitor and control Power Cool, Power Freeze and Ice Maker features of your refrigerator anytime, anywhere. The app can also provide door open notification and self-diagnosis as well.
