All of Samsung’s (SSNLF) 2016 smart TVs will be ready to connect to the Internet of Things.
This means that all of Samsung’s 2016 smart TVs will be able to interact with other smart devices in a person’s household. The company notes that its SmartThings platform works with many of its own products and 200 not made by it.
Samsung also noted that all of its high-end SUHD TVs released in 2016 will be able to act as a hub for Internet of Things networks in owners’ homes. This will allow owners to control other Internet of Things devices without needing separate apps for each of them.
“With Samsung Smart TVs working with the SmartThings technology, we have an opportunity to reach millions of households,” Alex Hawkinson, CEO and Co-founder of Samsung’s SmartThings, said in a statement. “Applying this technology into current household devices is a major step forwards that will make it much easier for everyone to experience the benefits of a smart home.”
