Samsung has officially brought the SmartThings app to Windows 10, essentially allows users to manage their smart devices from the comfort of their computers.
SmarThings is Samsung’s big bet in the smart home world, and earlier this year, the organization announced it wants the platform being available everywhere, just to make certain users can conveniently control their devices no matter where they’re.
And with the debut of the Windows 10 devices, the organization allows users to control all of their devices in the same spot, while also receiving status information within the notifications center. You can obviously group devices as you would like, as well as control a number of them simultaneously.
“Use your Samsung Smart TV, home appliances, and SmartThings-compatible devices more conveniently with one app. You can quickly and simply connect and take control of your devices with SmartThings,” Samsung says in the description from the app.
App already available
“You can monitor and control the status of various devices which are registered on the server such as smart devices, home appliances (refrigerators, kimchi refrigerators, wine cellars, washers, dryers, air dressers, ovens, dishwashers, cooktops, robot vacuum cleaners, air conditioning units, home air cleaners, etc.), TVs, and speakers from outside as well.”
Samsung explains the app continues to be specifically optimized for the Galaxy Book, the company’s own computer running Windows 10, and that the availability of certain features may be limited according to the region. You can find the app free within the Microsoft Store, and it’ll be interesting to determine how often the company ships updates, especially as more users will likely try it out.
