Next-generation Samsung SmartThings Hub is here

Samsung recently unveiled the next generation of its SmartThings Hub, which was accompanied by a new SmartThings app.

The new Hub enables video streaming, has battery backup that lasts up to 10 hours, and can run certain functions locally to improve performance.

The Hub will continue to support ZigBee, Z-Wave, and local Internet-connected devices. Two USB ports and embedded Bluetooth will support future expansion.

The new collection of Samsung SmartThings sensors are now smaller and have been redesigned with a more contemporary look.

The free SmartThings app has been redesigned for easier navigation and a more “intuitive” experience.

“You can now directly organise and control your connected devices by room, view live streaming from cameras, quickly set up and run routines, and explore the marketplace of nearly 200 devices,” said Samsung.
