Available in February 2023 and in Korea and the US, Samsung’s SmartThings Station is easy-to-use and offers easy control and interoperability of multiple connected devices:
“SmartThings Station offers quick setup and compatibility with a range of smart home products including Matter devices, with the simplicity that users expect from Samsung.
SmartThings Station is designed to acomplish the following tasks:
A Smarter Home, With Minimal Effort Ease of Use
One of SmartThings Station’s many attributes is its easy-to-use. Users can use a smartphone app to connect to the SmartThings Station. Users can also efficiently onboard devices with a simple scan of a QR code with a smartphone camera.
Intuitively Adapts to Users Daily Routines
Automated pre-set routines created via the SmartThings mobile app, make SmartThings Station easy to use without the hassle of requiring users to control individual devices manually:
“For example, when it’s time for bed, a quick tap could trigger a routine for sleep – which could turn off the lights, close the blinds and lower the temperature. Or, if a movie night is on the cards, a movie routine could turn on the TV and dim the lights. When leaving home, the SmartThings Station can turn off power outlets and unused appliances to save energy, and activate a security system.”
Find and Manage Your Devices around Home More Accurately
Coupled with Samsung’s SmartThings Find, a rapidly growing asset tracking service, SmartThings Station also functions to find Samsung devices and other things with an unkown location around the house:
“Serving as an always-at-home device scanner, SmartThings Station helps Samsung Galaxy users to keep track of the locations of their registered devices – from smartphones, tablets, watches, and earbuds to personal belongings such as keys or a wallet that have a Galaxy SmartTag or SmartTag+5 device attached.”
A Fast Charging Pad That Fits Perfectly in a Smart Home
Yet another valuable SmartThings Station function is its powerful charging pad, supporting up to 15W wireless charging:
“Fast charging is an ingenious addition to a Smart Home hub because it works so well with the rhythms of life. Users can choose to receive an alert when charging is completed, so they can pick up play where they have left off or switch to charge another device.”
