Samsung's Smart Home to feature control through Galaxy Gear

Samsung Smart Home

This year at CES Samsung will be turning their attention to the home with a new service called Smart Home. Connecting all of your technology through a new protocol, Samsung hopes that users will be able to quickly and easily automate tasks around the house with their existing electronics. Included in all of this is integration with Samsung's Galaxy Gear, and this is one of their focus points of the new service.

Simply saying "Going out" to your Galaxy Gear will trigger lights in the house to dim, the temperature to adjust, and selected appliances to be turned off. If you say "Goodnight" the televisions will turn off, lights will dim and eventually turn off completely, and this works from any of the connected Samsung devices.

The service will work initially only with Samsung devices through Smart Home Software Protocol (SHP for short) which is how they will be able to get all of the devices talking to each other. Samsung has stated that they are willing to open it up to other devices in the future, but we will have to wait and see if this actually happens.

Samsung will be showing all of this technology off at CES, so stay tuned for updates and be sure to stop over at our CES Hub for all of our updates.

That's pretty cool! Great feature! I have many samsung products in my household, except phone wise I use Iphone and Blackberry. So hopefully they expand the services to other devices sooner.
