Samsung Smart Home platform controls home appliances from smart TVs

Samsung logoSamsung has laid out its plans for a connected home at CES, one which allows multiple appliances to communicate with each other. Samsung Smart Home is billed as a platform for managing a variety of devices, such as washing machines, refrigerators and televisions, something the company hinted at in late December when it added cross-device communication support to its smart TV SDK.

Smart Home will consist of three services working together in a single platform, according to an official blog post. "Device Control" will allow users of mobile devices or smart TVs to directly control owned devices, such as turning on air conditioning, over the local network. "Home View", a second section of the platform, will facilitate the external viewing and control from off the network, such as from a smartphone while staying at a hotel. One suggested use for the technology would allow the user to say "going out" to a Galaxy Gear, triggering all lighting and specific devices to turn off. A third prong in the system, "Smart Customer Service", will notify users when devices require servicing, need to be refilled with consumable items, and to help with after-sales servicing itself.

Samsung hopes to start deploying Smart Home to its devices in the first half of 2014, though it will not only be limited to Samsung products. The Smart Home software protocol (SHP) will apparently allow other devices to communicate under the system, with Samsung working with third party companies to add support to their device range.

The Smart Home system is not the only one promising to offer communication between appliances. The AllSeen Alliance was formed in early December by a group of companies including LG, Panasonic, Qualcomm, and the Linux Foundation, with Qualcomm's AllJoyn framework being used as the foundation for its own "Internet of Things" platform.
