Samsung’s entire 2016 Smart TV line-up will be Internet of Things (IoT) ready and connected with SmartThings, an open platform that allows users to connect, manage and control smart devices and IoT services.
Among the 2016 Smart TVs, Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TVs will apply IoT hub technology, allowing the TV itself to act as the controller for the entire smart home. Samsung developed its own IoT hub technology with SmartThings for 2016 SUHD TVs.
At CES 2016, Samsung will showcase the future of TV and demonstrate how Samsung’s Smart TVs are at the center of the expanding IoT ecosystem.
“The 2016 line-up of Smart TVs will offer consumers new possibilities and cement Samsung’s market leading position, as the first company to launch IoT ready TVs.” comments Hyun Suk Kim, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
