Samsung has introduced the world to many cool gadgets to include microwaves, televisions, and smart phones. Today, we look at the smart home, powered by Samsung's SmartThings. 

Autonomous everything is in the world around us and does not exclude our home in this age of technology. The SmartThings 'hub' is a device that can help you manage many areas of your home, and provides connectivity to a variety of smart devices. The hub connects to the wireless router in your home to deliver a signal to any of a variety of devices you can control wirelessly via the smart phone app (available for iPhone and Android; also available in the Windows Store) simply called the SmartThings app. Once connected, the app can assist you with a variety of things, like setting behaviors or 'routines' that you normally follow. If you go to work at 9, the app can start monitoring your home with the hub and connected devices the moment you leave your home. Alternately, you can set schedules for out of town plans, extended vacations, etc. You can control your heat pump from half way around the world, and ward off bad guys with plenty of light in your home, even when no one is there. The Hub contains ZigBee and Z-Wave radios, and is also compatible with IP-accessible devices. There's no hard-wiring or installation needed, and the best part is, there are no monthly fees.

Below are a few of the devices that can pair with the SmartThings hub, courtesy of the Samsung website:
