Samsung Electronics recently revealed that the SmartThings Find service, which was first launched in October 2020, continues to grow rapidly, now comprising more than 100 million find nodes. Powered by SmartThings, the premier technology enabling connected living, around 230,000 devices are located through this feature every day.
“We’re incredibly proud of how quickly the SmartThings Find service has grown in less than a year, helping people all over the world locate hundreds of thousands of misplaced devices every day,” said Kevin SungSu YOU, Managing Director, Samsung Sri Lanka.
“SmartThings Find is yet another example of how Samsung is continuing to create meaningful new experiences that help make life more convenient and less stressful. We are grateful to all our consumers that helped us reach this milestone,” he also said.
The fast-growing SmartThings Find service enables users to pinpoint registered Galaxy smartphones, smartwatches, earbuds and even S Pen Pro, as well as personal belongings, like keys or wallets, that have a Galaxy SmartTag or SmartTag+ device attached.
SmartThings Find, a standout feature of the SmartThings ecosystem, uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology to locate misplaced devices. Even if the device is offline, other Galaxy users can opt-in to enable their Galaxy smartphone or tablet to help others find nearby lost devices.
SmartThings Find is continuing to evolve with the addition of the newly launched SmartThings Find Members service, which now enables users to invite friends and family to become members of their SmartThings account, so they too can find and manage their devices.
Users can now invite up to 19 other people to become members and locate up to 200 devices at once. Once someone has accepted your invitation to SmartThings Find Members, you can opt for them to be able to view your selected devices and locations for specific devices, all upon your consent.
SmartThings Find Members is particularly useful for families, as they try to keep up with pets or keep track of their car keys—even if they don’t have their phone with them.
SmartThings is the premier technology enabling connected living and driving the future of IoT. Its open platform already supports thousands of devices across hundreds of brands and offers endless possibilities to innovators and developers seeking seamless connectivity in a vast IoT ecosystem.
Samsung also recently unveiled their latest Bluetooth tracking tile, Samsung SmartTag,that uses Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy (LE). This tracker helps you locate missing items when you attach them to whatever you see fit. You can clip them up to your keys, wallet, backpack or even to your pet’s leash. They pair with Samsung’s SmartThings app and the consumer can then check out the tag’s last location, and play a sound to help locate it in tight spaces.
The tracker has a range of 120m. It also serves as a one-touch IoT control meaning it can switch on or off connected Samsung appliances like TVs, washing machines and other appliances. The Samsung SmartTag is available in Sri Lanka through authorised dealers for a price of Rs. 5,599/-.
Samsung is committed to bringing smart functionality and capabilities everywhere consumers want to be, while enhancing the user experience.
