Home automation with smart devices is already a growing market. Revolv launched an app at the end of last year aimed at consolidating the control of devices and, in January, Piper launched its smart home and security device.
The Samsung service is aimed at making it easy for users to control devices in their home. Users can add compatible devices and appliances that are connected to their home network to the Samsung Smart Home app, and manage them via the application's interface. For example, users can control their TV from the couch, switch on the heating as they leave the office or turn on lights for security while they are abroad on holiday.
