Users will enjoy more control over their smart home than ever before with the latest SmartThings update on Galaxy Watch
January 19, 2022 – Today, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced an update coming to the SmartThings ecosystem that will allow Galaxy Watch users to monitor and control more of their smart home right from their wrist. The update will expand the list of devices that can be controlled using SmartThings on Galaxy Watch including air purifiers, thermostats, and blinds. Users can also continue to enjoy the ease and convenience of controlling home devices like TV, A/C, lights, speakers, and more straight from their Galaxy Watch anywhere and anytime they want.
For example, Galaxy Watch users will be able to livestream both home and doorbell Ring and Nest cameras for the first time. Ring camera users can also access two-way talk directly from their Galaxy Watch.
“Smartwatches and wearables are becoming increasingly popular, and this new update allows users to maximize their connected home living experience,” said Jaeyeon Jung, Executive Vice President and Head of SmartThings, Device Platform Center at Samsung Electronics. “We are thrilled to build this critical bridge that makes smart living more accessible and convenient by helping Galaxy Watch wearers protect and monitor their homes instantly from anywhere.”
With the ability to check connected cameras from Galaxy Watch, it’s easier than ever to stay connected with your smart home. Galaxy Watch users don’t even need to open the app – they can simply swipe right from the Watch face to easily reach SmartThings.
At CES 2023, Samsung demonstrated how it is “bringing calm to our connected world” with the power of SmartThings. This update is the latest example of Samsung’s commitment to removing complexity in today’s ever-growing, interconnected ecosystem of devices.
