The smart home platform – SmartThings is currently only accessible through the android and iOS mobile apps
Samsung is finally building a way to access one of the oldest smart home platform – SmartThings, which is still supported through a web browser.
The smart home platform – SmartThings is currently only accessible through the android and iOS mobile apps.
In May 2019, the company started development on a web panel for smart home platform – SmartThings, though the closed alpha was shut down in October of that same year while Samsung prepared “for a much larger test leading to a full release”.
According to later forum posts from a developer of SmartThings, the web app was still in development, but the project was “running into shifting requirements from legal and security teams”.
The panel appears to have gone live for anyone with a Samsung account earlier this week, accessible from my.smartthings.com, though the developer noted that it’s still not finished and no official support is available, the report said.
Before being acquired by Samsung in 2014, the smart home platform – SmartThings was originally founded in 2012. It can connect to other platforms, just like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
Samsung previously offered a Windows application for managing SmartThings, but it was deprecated in 2019.
The company is now working on an updated desktop application, primarily designed for its new Galaxy Book Pro laptops.
