Samsung SmartThings hub

Following its purchase of SmartThings last year for $200 million, Samsung has been planning to launch a second generation range of products, but the new hub’s launch had been delayed. SmartThings has now announced that its new hub will be arriving next month.

The new SmartThings Hub is designed to address connectivity problems that some users found with the first generation hardware. Rather than having to connect up to the cloud for data, the new hub is powerful enough to handle processing locally, so your system will stay up to date even if your internet connection drops out.

Existing customers will be able to use old hardware on the new hub and won’t need to update to the new hardware if they don’t want to. Samsung is also planning to announce a new line-up of home automation products in the coming weeks, along with an enhanced mobile app to help manage everything.

The Samsung SmartThings Hub will be available to purchase in early September, and can be pre-ordered through the SmartThings shop, via, or through Amazon with a $99 price tag.
