After a week of hard work, I pick up some beef tenderloin for myself on my way home. I’m not sure what I wanted to cook, so I turn to Bixby and ask “Hi Bixby, find me some recipes with beef tenderloin”. I chose a recipe that sounds the most appetizing and start cooking right away. The key to this dish is in roasting the meat. I use the Sensor Cook to sear the tenderloin to medium. The kitchen hood turns on automatically as soon as I start using the induction. I continue to cook without worrying about smells lingering in the house. I know I’m not the most talented chef, but I feel great about cooking a perfectly seared steak.
Before I start eating, I open the window to feel the spring breeze. I elegantly plated the meal, and SmartThings Cooking recommends me a wine that complements the steak. The air purifier turns on after detecting fine dust that probably came in through the window. I take a sip of wine after taking pictures of my first successfully cooked meal. It feels as if the fatigue from an exhausting week just melts away.
SmartThings Cooking is a service that helps users easily cook professional-level dishes. The interactive cooking guide reads out recipes and sends them to kitchen appliances so users can solely focus on cooking without having to dig through recipe books while handling the food. Users can conveniently enjoy high-quality cuisine through meal kits by simply scanning the kits. SmartThings Cooking will help users prepare the meal through the connected kitchen appliances. In addition, by scanning the label on a meat package, SmartThings Cooking recommends recipes and tips on storage methods. Users can also scan wine labels to save them to a wine list, manage inventory, and get recipe recommendations that pair well with each wine.
SmartThings Air Care is a service that provides a total air care solution through home appliances such as air conditioners and purifiers. The Air Quality Keeper self-operates when it detects poor air quality or recommends air purification methods based on the indoor condition to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Users can always maintain clean air qualities in living rooms on dusty days and kitchens during heated cooking sessions through these air purifying appliances without the hassle of opening windows or pressing a button.
I’m concerned for my pet Maru who has been spending more time along at home these days because of an important project I started at work. I then open the SmartThings app to check up on Maru. Barking alerts were frequent in the past, but they have decreased after going through training sessions with the vet. I’m proud of him for doing so well by himself at home. I turn on the lights and TV with the app in the evening, so Maru doesn’t feel lonely. Looks like I’ll be working overtime again today, so I fill up Maru’s dinner in his bowl through a feeder in advance.
Suddenly, a SmartThings Home Care notification pops up from my parents’ house. I turn on my parent’s JetBot AI camera to look around the house and find out my mom tripped on the kitchen floor. I immediately call her, and she said she unconsciously cried out for help while panicking when she wasn’t able to get up after tripping. Thankfully she said she wasn’t hurt. I plan on making time to visit her this weekend with Maru.
SmartThings Pet Care creates a personalized environment for the pet through connected home devices. The air conditioner can be set to an optimal temperature depending on the pet’s breed, or the air purifier effectively removes the fur of pets and makes clean air. Users can also turn on the TV or some music for their pets that are staying alone at home, creating a stable and safe environment for the pet whether the user is at home together or away for work. In addition, users can receive notifications when pets bark and check the notification history to identify any possible signs of anxiety from separation.
SmartThings Home Care’s Family Care service begins with the word ‘relief’. When the Jetbot AI detects a family member shouting “Hi Bixby, please help”, it immediately sends an alert to other family members. Users can then search all over the house with the camera on the robot vacuum cleaner or contact another family member to handle the situation. This alleviates concerns for leaving any family members alone in the house.
I spend all day Sunday playing golf with my friends. After a fun round, I come home and put my brand-new golf shoes in the ShowDresser to keep them nice and clean. I really like how they feel on my feet, so I plan to wear them again on the next rounding. I then go to the dressing room and put my golf wear in the AirDresser. SmartThings Clothing Care recommends a wash cycle that is perfect for someone like myself who is addicted to golf. I set this cycle as ‘My Golf Care’ and start it. Finally, I continue to organize the rest of my gear. I feel recharged after the weekend playing golf. It gives me full energy to start another week.
SmartThings Clothing Care is a service that makes caring for clothes a fun, proficient, and engaging task. It learns user patterns based on time, day, and weather, suggesting appropriate clothing care courses for the washer, dryer, AirDresser, and ShoeDresser that are suitable for the user’s clothes and shoes. A holistic, integrated care course is provided for clothes and shoes appropriate for business or specific activities, and the user can customize the name of each course. Additionally, users can experience a total professional clothing management through recommendations of combinations that maximize the synergy of clothing care appliances.
As the weather gets warmer, I begin preparing for spring. I planted some flowers and washed my blankets I’ve been putting off. A couple days ago, the SmartThings app notified me to replace the air purifier filters. The filters arrived just in time, so I replace them right away. This made me feel like I’ve finally done my job as I’ve knocked out an important task on the spring clean checklist. Then, I proceed to sweep away the dust in every corner of the house with a vacuum cleaner. Laying on the sofa with a glass of cool water could not be more refreshing. I am looking forward to the upcoming spring.
SmartThings Home Care is a service that comprehensively manages Samsung home appliances. It responds to and helps prevent problems by predicting them in advance. Some of the helpful tips users can get from this service includes an early freeze risk alert and defrost guides for when the weather becomes rapidly cold or a recommendation of air conditioner diagnostic functions before the weather becomes hot. Additionally, the service checks the status of replaceable components such as air purifier filters in real time, sends notifications when a replacement is required, and connects users to make a purchase. A friendly chatbot service along with a step-by-step response guide helps users solve problems independently when there are issues with a home appliance.
Carrying a tumbler instead of a disposable cup, using an eco-bag to avoid plastic bags, and maintaining a vegan diet on specific days are some ways I’ve changed my life to better the environment. Recently, I have also been managing the energy consumption of my home appliances. I can check how much energy is used by each device, control consumption, and receive tips on how to reduce energy usage from my most used devices through SmartThings Energy. The AI Saving Mode automatically switches my devices to Energy Saving Mode before reaching a preset usage target. I hope my efforts, whether big or small, can contribute to a sustainable future.
SmartThings Energy presents detailed and accurate energy consumption levels of each device. Levels are measured in kWh and cost over time, and the user can easily understand which device uses how much energy based on these measurements. Specific tips to reduce energy usage are also provided, encouraging users to perform eco-friendly activities themselves. Additionally, enabling AI Saving Mode reduces energy usage by automatically switching devices to Energy Saving Mode before the devices reach a preset usage target.
