About the Hub

The Internet of Things, same as the Smart Home concept, refers to the idea of internet-connected devices in a home being able to communicate with one another for efficiency – for instance, a door telling the bulbs to turn off when you are off to work.

However, IoT devices are made by different manufacturers, with this creating problem of incompatibility. Samsung SmartThings Hub is designed to ensure the compatibility of these devices from diverse makers to make a smart home feasible.

So, the the SmartThings Hub helps all these IoT devices talk to each other.

The Design

The SmartThings Hub (2015) has a somewhat similar look as the last-generation hub. It still features a square-shaped design with a plastic body and nicely curved corners.

The sensors look smaller and sleeker. SmartThings says the sensors are redesigned to allow users add a more contemporary feel to their living space.
