Easily control your smart home devices with an affordable Samsung SmartThings Station

Published on

Samsung announced Its new SmartThings Station, a small hub for your home that helps you connect smart home devices easily. In addition to being affordable, the hub also includes a 15W wireless charging pad. Besides being compatible with SmartThings devices, it works with the growing number of Matter products allowing you to buy smart home products from different brands.

With SmartThings Station, users can set up a whole bunch of routines such as turning off lights or other smart devices. You use the SmartThings app to create up to three routines for the hub that can be activated by pressing the smart button on the SmartThings station. The three actions can be activated by short press, long press or double press on the smart button. You can also start a routine directly from your SmartThings app.

If you’re already deep into the Samsung ecosystem, the SmartThings station offers additional benefits. For example, it links to the SmartThings Find service that can help scan for missed Samsung smartphones, tablets, watches and headphones. It also works with the Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag+ so you can find lost keys if you attach those products.

“A smarter home shouldn’t be complicated or expensive. So we wanted to create SmartThings Station as a simple, reliable and scalable smart home hub,” said Jaeyeon Jung, senior vice president and head of SmartThings, Device Platform Center at Samsung Electronics. “The number of devices in the connected home continues to grow, especially in light of the recent launch of the Matter standard. We are proud to play a role in facilitating the adoption of this exciting technology.”

Samsung said this multi-purpose smart home hub will arrive in the US and Korea in early February. The company has yet to release details on pricing other than that it will be “affordable”.
