The service will first be rolled out in Korea and the U.S., with more countries around the world added throughout the year. The service makes connects various Samsung products in a home to enable home automation features. Users can use a single Android app to connect and control home appliances, TVs and mobile devices.

Whether at home, at work, or out and about, people can use the app on their smartphone or wearable device to check the status of home appliances; for example, they can fully control the washer and select the correct wash settings for the laundry to be ready just when they arrive at home.
According to Samsung, all data transmitted by the app is encrypted to assure users that their data remains private.
Samsung plans to expand its service line-up to other smart products, including the Smart Bulb as well as robot vacuum cleaners and the Samsung Gear Fit.
