Samsung Brings IoT to Smart TV

By Tom Allen

Samsung has announced that its entire lineup of 2016 SUHD TVs will be ‘IoT-ready’, and connected with its SmartThings platform. SmartThings, acquired by Samsung in 2014, is an open platform for connection and control of smart devices and IoT services.

2016 SUHD TVs will be able to connect with and control Samsung devices and SmartThings sensors, as well as more than 200 other SmartThings-compatible products. These will include lights, locks and cameras.

Samsung will demonstrate this new feature at CES 2016.
