NVIDIA Shield TV Smart Home Edition comes with a SmartThings Link hub for $219.99 ($1 more than if bought separately)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

Despite how much I love my Shield TV and how often we use it in my household for streaming videos and playing games, I can't help but scratch my head a little at what NVIDIA is doing here. The company is rehashing its streaming box for the umpteenth time with another bundle and no price incentive to make anyone want to jump on board.

The new 2017 Shield TV, which was more or less a rehashed version of the older one, already comes in three versions: a $299 Pro with 500GB of storage and some hardware enhancements, a $179 16GB version with just the remote, and a $199 16GB with the remote and the game controller.

Samsung announces SmartThings Wifi with Plume mesh technology and built-in SmartThings hub

Monday, August 13th, 2018

You probably have a Wi-Fi router, and you might have a smart home hub of some sort as well. Why not make those devices the same thing? That's Samsung's latest router, which it calls the SmartThings Wifi. This replaces Samsung's old Home Connect router with SmartThings integration. This time, Samsung's system has Mesh networking thanks to a partnership with Plume.

The old Home Connect could work in a mesh if you bought multiple units, but the system wasn't really designed with that in mind. SmartThings Wifi comes in single and three-packs ($120 and $280, respectively).

Samsung Connect app rebranded to ‘SmartThings’

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

We've known for a while that Samsung is consolidating its 40+ smart home apps into the SmartThings app, and the company confirmed yesterday that the revamped app is coming next month. Now it appears the Samsung Connect application, which is one of many being folded into SmartThings, has itself been rebranded to SmartThings. That's not confusing at all.

A new version of the Connect app was uploaded to APKMirror today, with the version number 1.7.

Samsung SmartThings app overhaul coming in March

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Samsung's smart home ecosystem has become rather confusing over the years. Samsung ConnectSamsung Smart Home, and SmartThings all have overlapping functionality - resulting in a horrible user experience and a confusing mess for everyone.

According to a press release from today, Samsung is planning to release the overhauled SmartThings app in March.

Samsung shows off 2018 Family Hub fridge and 146-inch ‘The Wall’ TV at CES

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Samsung unveiled its first Family Hub fridge back in 2016, and the concept of a 'smart refrigerator' hasn't become any less ridiculous since then. Still, the company made a sequel last year, so people must be buying them. The third-generation model was unveiled at CES, along with an insane 146-inch TV that Samsung calls 'The Wall.'

Family Hub (2018)

The latest iteration of Samsung's smart fridge can sync up food storage with meal preparation, keep family members better connected, and play music from a wide variety of services.

Samsung’s Bixby-powered smart speaker reportedly arriving in first half of 2018

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Bixby is Samsung's home-grown virtual assistant that debuted on the Galaxy S8. It's still far behind Google Assistant in terms of functionality and language support, but Samsung has mostly continued to stick with it (they finally allowed users to disable the button a few months ago). According to a new report from Bloomberg, Samsung is working on a Bixby-powered smart speaker, and it's coming in the first half of next year.

[Update: Details on lock codes] SmartThings app adds Scenes, fingerprint authentication, visitor lock codes, and more

Monday, November 20th, 2017

One of the most requested features in the SmartThings app has been scene support. I'm new to the system, so I'm sure there were some enterprising solutions to the lack of scenes, but there wasn't any native and easy way to do it.

One of the most requested features in the SmartThings app has been scene support. I'm new to the system, so I'm sure there were some enterprising solutions to the lack of scenes, but there wasn't any native and easy way to do it. That changes with the latest update to version 2.10 of the SmartThings app.

Scenes reside inside the My Home tab, next to Things and Rooms, and allow you to change multiple lights, switches, and devices to different presets to suit a certain mood.
