Samsung TV as a central location of the smart home
South Korean television maker Samsung has announced that its 2016 lineup of smart TVs will offer support for the Internet of Things. As a result, the TV will soon become the central part of the smart home, with which you can also operate your connected gadgets. Samsung announced this in a press release. At CES in January, the company will reveal more information about the IoT televisions. The technology is based on that of SmartThings – a company that Samsung bought in 2014 for 200 million dollars.
Should the manufacturer’s plan get off the ground, the smart TV will soon become the central part of the smart home of the future. This way you get all important information about your home and gadgets presented on the largest screen in the house. For example, you can receive a notification when the washing machine is ready or when the milk is almost empty. More details will follow next month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which will be held from January 6-9, 2016.
