Samsung's SmartThings product ecosystem has grown a bit larger today as the company has announced three affordable new products that will serve as both entry-level smart home devices and as a way to outperform their competitors.
At the heart of today's announcement, the SmartThings camera is priced at $ 89.99, which, according to the company, combines clear details in Full HD wide-angle video with High Dynamic Range and advanced object recognition – and which can detect movement relatively quickly ,
The new camera, which costs less than competing cameras from Google and Amazon, offers both night vision and a wide-angle field of view. The SmartThings camera can record 1
The SmartThings camera ships with a 30-day premium cloud storage for $ 7.99 a month or $ 79.99 a year. You can connect up to 8 cameras if you go this way, or you can keep for free 24 hours of cloud storage, with the option to connect up to four cameras if you want.
In addition to the new SmartThings camera, Samsung has also today introduced a Wi-Fi Smart Plug and a SmartThings Smart Bulb, both of which work with the newly designed SmartThings hub and newly introduced sensors last year – even if a SmartThings hub is not required to use a new product.
] The Smart Plug costs $ 17.99, while the Smart Bulb costs $ 9.99. Both are available on Samsung.com and from selected retailers such as Best Buy.
Samsung positions the light bulb as a smarter and cheaper way to illuminate a home. With a voice assistant, you can dim and control the light bulb that bathes your home in warm, white light.
If you use the light bulb with a SmartThings Hub and an app, you can even set custom automations with the light bulb. For example, you can set the lights to turn on when you get home after dark, or to dim the lights when you want to watch a movie. Likewise, the Smart Plug, almost every lamp, promises to turn any small device or electronic device in your home into an intelligent device with voice control support.
