Samsung has announced a system to connect together a household's various gadgets, appliances, and utility controls. It said one way the Smart Home service could be used would be to turn off a home's lights and TV if the owner said going out into a smart watch app. Samsung supposed the service would originally be limited to its own products and planned to support third parties devices in time.
Samsung said its new service would initially offer three features such as device control, home view and customer service. The firm said its Smart Home app would primarily run on selected Samsung TVs, smart phones, tablets and its Galaxy Gear smart watch. In the past they had special technologies for different appliances and they didn't all join up. It shows like they've tidied that up quite nicely now.
