SmartThings delays its next-gen smart home products

From PCWorld: SmartThings, the home automation company Samsung Electronics acquired last August, has delayed the launch of its new home hub and sensors to the third quarter, as it works to improve performance and stability.   Even though the products have been built and are currently being tested, SmartThings felt it necessary to postpone the launch from the second quarter to what will most likely be the third quarter, the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.   One of the goals with the new hub is to improve stability compared to its current offering, and this seems to be taking longer than originally thought. The company has been performing lots of additional testing to address many recent disruptions users have experienced, it said.   When they work, the SmartThings hub and connected sensors can be used to control lights, thermostats, doors and warn about things such as water leaks. However, users of the current hub have been suffering from device control and connectivity issues and apps that don’t execute properly, leaving them unable to fully control their homes. The company’s status website lists six incidents between just March 23 and 31.
