SmartThings is Samsung’s Internet of Things platform that brings the vision of a connected home to life. The company has added another great feature to it that will enable you to reduce your electricity bills and live a more sustainable life.
SmartThings Energy has actually been around since 2019 but it was limited to South Korea initially. It keeps an eye on the power consumption of all SmartThings-enabled devices to provide real-time consumption data to customers.
Reduce your electricity bills with SmartThings Energy
SmartThings Energy is now available for users in the United States. It can be accessed from within the SmartThings app. SmartThings Energy can be used to monitor consumption, set targets and stay on top of the actual power usage of Samsung appliances and HVAC systems.
Users can then rely on this data to take steps in order to bring their monthly energy bills down and reduce their carbon footprint. Users get a real-time view of the energy being consumed by their compatible Samsung appliances and HVAC systems.
It also sends notifications when the devices are consuming more energy than normal. SmartThings Energy also tracks energy consumption for every device and analyzes the usage patterns to help users bring down their electricity costs.
SmartThings Energy is compatible with supported Samsung home appliances, including but not limited to dishwashers, air dressers, washers, fridges, vacuums, air purifiers and air conditioners. The service will be expanded to WWST partners in the future so that third-party appliances can also be monitored.
