HEART OF THE HOME

Singapore Tatler Homes - - STYLE - sam­sung.com

Ear­lier this year, Korean tech­nol­ogy gi­ant Sam­sung launched the first re­frig­er­a­tor that in­cor­po­rates the In­ter­net of things—the Sam­sung Fam­ily Hub. The fridge comes with the brand’s Smart­things plat­form and in­tel­li­gent voice as­sis­tant Bixby, mean­ing that home­own­ers can eas­ily mon­i­tor and con­trol an ar­ray of house­hold de­vices. Other Sam­sung smart ap­pli­ances through­out the home can be seam­lessly man­aged at the re­frig­er­a­tor’s high-def­i­ni­tion LCD touch­screen via the Smart­things app. With it, you can ac­ti­vate a wash­ing cy­cle, a round of vac­u­um­ing, or even check your front door se­cu­rity. Mean­while, Bixby al­lows for voice-ac­ti­vated nav­i­ga­tion, even recog­nis­ing in­di­vid­ual voices; your fam­ily can also cre­ate cus­tomised pro­files to per­son­alise the ex­pe­ri­ence. The most im­por­tant func­tion, of course, is food stor­age. The Sam­sung Fam­ily Hub takes meal prep to the next level with the View In­side app, al­low­ing users to check the con­tents of the fridge re­motely via smart­phone, set food ex­pi­ra­tion re­minders.
