Samsung Smart Home launches globally, Will be available first in Korea and U.S.

At CES 2014 in January, Samsung gave us a glimpse of its own vision of a connected home. The Samsung Smart Home promises to connect home appliances and mobile devices through an app. With it, Samsung previously said, users can turn on the air conditioner and home lighting while at the office or while traveling abroad.

The company has set a bold deadline this year, and it looks like everything is going according to plan.

The South Korean consumer electronics giant announced today the official global launch of the Samsung Smart Home service. The app, which will be made available first in Korea and the U.S., can be downloaded from Samsung Apps and Google Play.

Users will need to sign up for a Samsung Account.

There will also be separate apps for the Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch and the 2014 Samsung Smart TV models. It will be available this month, Samsung said in a statement.

The challenge here will be to expand the compatibility of the service. For now, the Samsung Smart Home  supports a few compatible appliances and devices, mostly made by Samsung, unsurprisingly.

In Korea, for example, supported appliances include the Samsung Q9000 air conditioner, the Samsung Bubbleshot 3 W9000 washer, and all 2014 Smart TVs. Meanwhile, supported appliances in the U.S. include the Samsung Smart French Door Refrigerator, the Samsung Smart Front Loading Washing Machine, and all 2014 Smart TV models.

The company is also planning to add the Smart Bulb and Smart Oven later this year. There's even a "good night" voice recognition feature in the works, which, we assume, will automatically turn off the home appliances.

“Samsung Smart Home lets people live better, worry less and be smarter with their devices and appliances," said WonPyo Hong, President of the Media Solution Center at Samsung. "We also have grand plans to enhance more and more parts of the home experience, especially with a view of expanding it to areas with high growth potential such as home safety and energy management.”
