Samsung's SmartThings hub out for many in North America

Samsung's SmartThings hub out for many in North America”

SmartThings, the Samsung-owned smart home platform, is in the midst of an outage for users in North America. Most will still work with manual operation. Reports of the outage began early yesterday, March 12, and SmartThings first acknowledged the outage on its status page in the afternoon.

Update: The company now says its issues have been resolved, saying that the "small subset" of users who had ongoing problems should be back online. With Gartner, Inc. predicting that 20.4 billion connected devices will be used worldwide by 2020, Samsung is proving it is a leader in this space as the SmartThings platform is now in over 1 million homes and the SmartThings cloud is connected to over 10 million devices. With the home automation market still flooded with devices across a broad range of manufacturers, SmartThings compatibility with a wide variety of networking standards has turned it into a meeting point for different products.

However, SmartThings' real strength is in how it allows those devices to be automated, rather than manually controlled. Due to the outage, things like Philips Hue light bulbs have stopped working. Alternatively, when a certain time at night is reached, exterior lights could turn on, and the connected locks could secure the doors. This collaboration is between the Samsung SmartThings R&D team and HARMAN Connected Services (HCS), a division of HARMAN International that supports hundreds of enterprises around the globe to accelerate the transformation to the connected world through cloud, mobility and analytics solutions.

Harman, which is also a Samsung company, is going to take the SmartThings development works which include the development and deploying of the SmartThings app.
