Samsung Smart Home wants to build the ideal connected home

Samsung promised a big show at CES 2014 this week, and that meant going beyond Galaxy smartphones and tablets in different sizes. Meet Samsung's dream for the ideal connected or "wired" home - the Samsung Smart Home.

According to the company, it will be a service that will allow users to control and manage their home devices through an app. Basically, it has three main features: Device Control, Home View, and Smart Customer Service. Explaining how it works, Samsung highlighted the Device Control feature.

"Users can use customized settings on their mobile devices or Smart TV to monitor or control home devices —turning on air conditioning or activating lighting, for example—while inside or outside the home, or even while travelling abroad," it said.

Meanwhile, the Home View feature will let users get real-time views of their home on their Galaxy smartphones. It will be made possible through built-in cameras. There's also a Smart Customer Service that will alert users when it is time to service home appliances or replace some parts.

Samsung envisions to roll out the service across its products later this year. But in order to achieve long-term success, it will need to partner with third-party companies to expand the service's reach.

Albeit ambitious, Samsung will need to prove its ability to execute such a grandiose plan. It's worth noting that rival companies like Microsoft and Google have tried and failed in convincing consumers like you and me to believe that connected home services are even worth trying.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
