Samsung has announced its Smart Home platform to allow multiple home and mobile devices to sing along in harmony. The platform will let your smart TV, select home appliances, smartphones and tablets connect to each other, bringing along few innovative services.
The Smart Home consists of three main features: Device Control, Home View and Smart Customer Service.
