Samsung Electronics (SMSN:LI) outlined its vision and strategy for intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) experiences at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
During the press conference, Samsung demonstrated its ability to make seamlessly connected consumer experiences across Samsung devices at home, at the office and on-the-go. Samsung has been working to make all Samsung products IoT ready by 2020. In addition, the company announced today its plan to advance IoT adoption via an open, consistent and intelligent platform.
– At Samsung, we believe IoT should be as easy as flipping a switch. With the new products and services announced today, we’re making IoT easier and more seamless,” said Hyunsuk Kim, President, Head of Samsung’s Consumer Electronics Division and Samsung Research.
– We’re committed to accelerating IoT adoption for everyone and making all Samsung connected devices intelligent by 2020, he said in the press release.
Samsung is working with partners such as the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF). OCF is the largest IoT standardization body in the world.
According to Samsung, in spring 2018 the company will unite its IoT applications, including Samsung Connect, Smart Home, Smart View and more into the SmartThings app to connect and control any SmartThings-enabled device directly from their phone, TV, or car from a single application.
Additionally, Samsung announced plans to connect HARMAN Ignite to the SmartThings Cloud, moving the IoT experience beyond the smart home to the car. As a result, consumers will be able to manage their connected home from the car and vice versa.
