    SmartThings is a giant in the smart home space and, for millions of people, it's become synonymous with smart living. Samsung continues to add new features to SmartThings while making the platform more inclusive. It will soon benefit from integration with Google Nest products, and users can already take advantage of the new Find feature for locating misplaced wearables, Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Watch smartwatches included. To top it all off, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will essentially double as a SmartThings hub.

    At present, SmartThings has around 63 million active users worldwide, many of which rely on Scenes, Automations, and the countless IFTTT (If This Then That) smart home scenarios these tools can create. Scenes and Automations feel natural to anyone who has used Bixby Routines before, and they're equally intuitive to users who may be unfamiliar with the IFTTT concept or Samsung's user-friendly interface.

    SmartThings excels at bringing countless smart home devices closer together, whether they're connected via ethernet or Wi-Fi and regardless of whether they're Samsung-branded or otherwise. It's not without flaws, as some brands and/or devices have lost support over time, but new brands and IoT products continue to be added to the SmartThings catalogue.

    We would love to hear how or if our readers use SmartThings in conjunction with their smart home devices. Do you rely on Scenes and Automations, and how dependent on SmartThings has your everyday (smart) life become, if at all? Feel free to participate in our poll and leave a comment below.
