With Samsung’s Group Control, appliances essentially function on their own and automatically getting to work as soon as a user enters or leaves their home.

The Technology is available in over 370 SmartThings-compatible devices which checks in/out when users enter or exit their home via GPS signals from their mobile devices and utilize advanced AI to analyze and learn usage patterns for connected appliances.

This System could be configured to automatically turn on TVs, AC, Robot vacuum cleaner, lights or appliances according to user’s preferences. This means that users no longer need to manually turn on each appliance they wish to use whenever they come home. As soon as a user walks through the door, the system will activate and optimize the devices you use so you won’t have to.

The settings of the connected environment automatically change according to its user’s preference. In addition, if there are two users in the house and one goes outside, the connected appliances’ settings will adjust based on the preferences of the user who stayed in.

The system also removes the need to worry about accidentally leaving a device running when a user leaves home, as the appliances’ GPS tracking function allow them to automatically shut off or switch to standby mode as soon as you walk outside the door.

The whole system is based on AI and IoT technologies, For example, if you don’t know what to watch on TV it could show you suggestion based on interested genres. You could ask the home to display content inside your connected fridge, you can even issue voice commands to find an item inside the refrigerator, browse recipes, check oven’s cooking progress, more.
