Samsung has announced that all 2016 SUHD TVs will come equipped with SmartThings hubs. What this means is that you will be able to use your smart TV to connect to other SmartThings-compatible devices in your household through a single user interface. You can connect your lights for example, or your smartphone, or pretty much everything else through the Internet of Things network.

An interesting thing about the SmartThings hub is that it is region activated, this means that it will initially only be available in certain regions of the world, regardless of your SUHD model, and as Samsung will expand to other countries the SmartThings hub will be activated. There will be around 200 SmartThings-compatible products for the tech consumer to choose from however Samsung hasn’t detailed what they’re about, except that they will be IoT compatible.

The South Korean manufacturer will be focusing its CES 2016 efforts on the Internet of Things where it will probably reveal its new lineup of devices as well as the Series 9 notebooks. Samsung’s unannounced Smart TV has already received the CES 2016 Best of innovation award in the Accessible Tech category so we have some very high expectations from the company next year.
