Samsung enters home automation market with Smart Home at CES

The Samsung Smart Home Service will enable smart TVs, home appliances, and smartphones to be connected and controlled via a single integrated platform.  The Smart Home product and logo will debut at this year’s CES, and will roll out to consumers in the first half of 2014.

Samsung aims to partner with third-party vendors by extending the service to its products and services in hope of dominating the connected world.

The service will initially provide three main features: Device Control, Home View and Smart Customer Service.  These features will allow users to set up customized settings and use a dedicated app on their smartphone or smart TV to control and monitor their homes, even when they’re out of the house or country.

It can also be programmed to perform multiple tasks with a single command.  Simply say “Going out.” to your Galaxy Gear and selected connected devices such as your smart TV and lights will be turned off.  You can also customize the system for various situations, such as when going to sleep.  Thermostats will automatically be adjusted, lights dimmed or turned off, and surveillance cameras turned on.
