Samsung is combining all Internet of Things devices by uniting them under one roof called SmartThings Cloud. the platform unites existing Samsung IoT services like SmartThingsSamsung ConnectARTIK, and Harman Ignite.


Samsung says that SmartThings Cloud will provide “a single, powerful cloud-based hub,” and that SmartThings Cloud will be a new open ecosystem, that will work with both Samsung devices and other third-party products.

SmartThings Cloud will give developers access to one cloud API across all SmartThings-compatible products. This should allow developers to build products and programs quicker and cheaper since it only has to account for one platform instead of three for Samsung devices. Samsung also says that SmartThings Cloud will provide “secure interoperability and services for business developing commercial and industrial IoT solutions.”

Additionally, the company also announced the new version of the Bixby Assistant. Named Bixby 2.0 the next version of the smart assistant ecosystem will include a Bixby 2.0 SDK (software developer kit) with Viv technologies inside. This SDK will be available “to select developers and through a private beta program.”

The company hasn’t said much more about what to expect from SmartThings Cloud, but Samsung is saying that consumers should expect to be able to start using products with it by early next year.
