Over the past year, we have been spending more time at home with more people doing more things under one roof. For some, this has meant that home management – keeping everything running smoothly and clean – has become quite complicated.
This ‘new normal’ way of living has driven the need for an ecosystem of products, IoT solutions, and digital services that streamline daily routines and help us run our homes more efficiently through automation and smart recommendations.
At Bespoke Home 2021, Samsung introduced SmartThings services that are already available or will become available in 2021, helping to make life at home seamless and free up more time and energy for the things that matter.
Whether out of curiosity or necessity, many of us have upgraded our cooking game this past year.
SmartThings Cooking can help upgrade your culinary journey by seamlessly integrating your kitchen experience from meal prep to shopping. Powered by Whisk’s Food AI, SmartThings Cooking learns your unique tastes, preferences, and nutritional goals to curate personalized recipe recommendations and meal plans. By understanding your favorite ingredients or devices and groceries you have on hand, the service suggests recipes you will like, guides you through the planning, shopping, and cooking processes — all while communicating directly with your smart Samsung kitchen appliances.
If you own a Family Hub, SmartThings Cooking can link with your fridge’s ViewInside cameras. Using AI food recognition capabilities, the cameras can automatically scan the products inside your fridge and identify them. You can view this on your Family Hub screen.1
An automatic Meal Planner recommends meals for the week and generates shopping lists for missing ingredients. If you like, you can then connect directly to online grocery retailers for checkout straight from your smartphone.
When you’re ready to start cooking, SmartThings Cooking becomes your sous-chef as your Samsung appliances communicate directly with each other. SmartThings Cooking will send recipe data straight to your smart range or oven to make sure that your settings are entered precisely, giving you one less thing to worry about. Bon appetite!
SmartThings Clothing Care
Although suits and formal wear don’t get worn as much as they used to, we still fill hampers on a daily basis. SmartThings Clothing Care, which works with smart Samsung washers and dryers, as well as the new Bespoke AirDresser, provides three key services so you can sort it all out with ease.
The service can recommend cycles for your wash based on garment materials, your usage patterns, weather, and season.
SmartThings Clothing Care also keeps track of the detergent levels in your washer and features a Smart Reorder2 function that helps you manage and purchase laundry supplies by placing orders online.
Starting in the second half of 2021,3 custom cycles are also easy to manage with SmartThings Clothing Care. You can store up to ten custom cycles and name them yourself, so if you have a penchant for delicate vintage clothes or leather you can save separate options for each of them.
With parents, kids, pets and roommates running around the house, it’s critical to stay aware of air quality in various parts of the home as well as outside.
SmartThings Air gives you important information about air quality in each part of your home, and even outside.
SmartThings Air can suggest helpful tips and even automate settings that activate synced air conditioners, air purifiers, air sensors, and window sensors to manage your surrounding air quality.4 Breathe easy with real-time air quality alerts and functions that are tailored to your needs while SmartThings Air gives you the information you need to ensure your home’s ventilation and air circulation are in check.
If you’ve ever wished you had a way to keep an eye on your pet while you’re away, SmartThings Pet is the service for you.
When in Pet Care Mode, the service uses the camera on Samsung’s Jet Bot AI+ robot vacuum to record videos of your pet whenever it comes into view, and send those videos to you in real time. The Jet Bot AI+ is powered by Intel AI, and can learn to recognize your pet.
In addition, the service can connect to other SmartThings devices in your home including air conditioners, lights, air purifiers and more, letting you change the settings remotely to make your pet as comfortable as possible, even when you’re not at home.
