CES 2014: Samsung Declares Year Of Internet Of Things

The most hyped Samsung Press Event covered the Connected Home in depth. Homes need to be safe and responsive, understanding your behaviors and adapting to your lifestyle. Samsung also mentioned the need for media everywhere like taking a call from your refrigerator, although we imagine they could have come up with a better example.

More interesting was Samsung’s announcement that 2014 will be the year of the internet of things, emphasizing a cohesive ecosystem.  A fitting example was their Smart Home service which manages smart TVs and Smart Home objects.  Say “movie mode”, for instance, on your smart TV controller and the lights in your living room dim and volume on AV system increases.
