Samsung SmartThings has entered over 100,000 households in South Korea

Samsung announced that SmartThings IoT solutions have been used in more than 100,000 homes in South Korea. SmartThings allows users to control connected devices from their smartphones. It can also be used to save electricity, thanks to some automation features.

In November 2020, Samsung used SmartThings for the first time at the Samsung C&T Raemian Leaders One building in Seocho-gu, Seoul. Later, through collaborations with POSCO E&C, Daewoo E&C, Hyundai E&C, Kolon Global, the SmartThings platform was used in 112 complexes built by 18 construction companies.

Building on this, Samsung is planning to expand SmartThings to 250,000 homes in 300 complexes that are ready for occupancy. The company's vision is to continuously expand SmartThings to partner construction companies.

Home residents who support SmartThings can use the app to control not only home appliances, but also a variety of other devices, such as "lighting, air conditioning and heaters, ventilation, and electric blinds and curtains." It also helps manage various convenience information and provides device-related information directly on the app.

Thanks to AI-driven energy-saving automation features, electricity consumption can be reduced. Users can also check electricity usage and charges, helping users use home appliances efficiently. It was recently reported that more than 10 million Samsung appliances are connected to SmartThings, and that number will grow further.
