In order to offer their users even more options in the area of the smart networked home, Samsung Electronics and Bosch have agreed a far-reaching partnership. The large number of different manufacturers and protocols used makes controlling your own home more and more complicated. Such collaborations just make sense for all customers.
Control Home Connect devices with the SmartThings app and vice versa
Smart connected products are becoming increasingly popular. However, it is best if everything can really be networked and controlled with one another, since in most cases you do not rely on just one manufacturer. With SmartThings, Samsung has developed a smart home platform that offers an application option for almost every smart home scenario and is open to various third-party providers and other manufacturers. SmartThings is already compatible with products from more than 200 brands.
Samsung Electronics and Bosch are now taking another big step towards greater choice and convenience – for a better connected home. The two brands want to join forces and provide users with a comprehensive product portfolio by linking their smart home platforms (SmartThings, Home Connect Plus and Home Connect). As a result of the cooperation, users of SmartThings and Home Connect Plus can now manage and control networked products from the other company via their preferred app.
SmartThings users already have access to various devices in the Home Connect portfolio. This is the BSH Hausgeräte ecosystem and thus one of the largest cross-brand platforms for home appliances worldwide. Home Connect comprises a wide range of partners who deal with smart home solutions, voice assistants or recipe collections, for example. The corresponding products are now officially certified as “Works with SmartThings”. Users of the Home Connect Plus app can now also control the wide range of Samsung home appliances.
