Samsung’s smart things: auto control
Announced today at Samsung’s Unpacked, the leader in connected living, SmartThings, has expanded its home-to-car and car-to-home functionality with Android Auto. This update gives drivers and passengers unprecedented ability to use their vehicle as a control center for their home when they are on the road.
With SmartThings, drivers can check their car status wherever they are, to start or stop their car, and turn on the AC/Heater before even stepping in. Working closely with Google, SmartThings and Android Auto simplified onboarding and it has been adopted by every major car manufacturer and can be found in nearly 100 million cars on the road.
From leaving work or running errands, through SmartThings, users can enjoy a relaxing homecoming by setting the temperature, turning on the robot vacuum, and turning on the washing machine to start a load of laundry.
This feature brings remote connectivity to thousands of intelligent devices made by hundreds of brands supported by SmartThings’ open IoT ecosystem.
