on Jul 04, 2013

Get a Samsung smarter home this winter

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 4 July, 2013 – Samsung is committed to make living the connected life as easy as possible and has created a number of Smart Life Product Solutions to further enhance the overall technology experience. Through the release of Smart Viewing, Smart Home, Smart Gaming, Smart Sharing, Smart Sound, Smart Kitchen, Smart Home Office, and Smart Climate Bundles the aim is to make the transition between work, play or the home and office seamless.


Smart Viewing is all about connecting Samsung smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, and Smart TVs, and effortlessly link and share content between devices. The Smart Home Solution makes sharing multimedia files from computer or tablet to television as easy as possible. “Smart Viewing and Smart Home solutions provide the perfect fit for consumers who enjoy sharing experiences with family and friends. Samsung products integrate effortlessly with each other to make this not only a seamless experience, but one that is hassle-free for any member of the household,” says Michelle Potgieter, Head of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Samsung Electronics South Africa.


The Smart Gaming Solution links Samsung smartphones, tablets, and Smart TVs together for a fun and interactive experience. Now consumers can play games live from their tablet or mobile phones directly on their TV. “In addition to gaming and watching movies, South Africans love their music. Our Smart Sound Solution removes the clutter of wires and provides the ideal way to link Samsung devices to your Smart TV to stream music directly from your phone to your TV or sound system,” adds Potgieter. Smart Sharing Solution utilise the innovative Samsung SideSync technology to connect smartphones to notebooks, by using a USB cable, and dragging and dropping content from one device to another. SideSync provides consumers with the ability to utilise the best features of both devices.


As South Africa is in the middle of another cold winter, pressure on the electricity grid is increasing. The Samsung Smart Kitchen Solution is designed to be energy-efficient and kind to the environment. It’s all about technology working smartly so you can too. From washing machines that can accommodate a cold water wash, or 15 minute cycle, to fridges with easy slide shelves that allow for hassle-free food storage and access to the back of the fridge to ensure less time spent standing with the door open.


As the winter chill sets in, Samsung Smart Climate Solution incorporates a selection of innovative air-conditioning units which remains one of the most energy efficient means of heating indoor environments. These units also improve indoor air quality and offers protection against airborne infections by turning contaminants like bacteria and viruses into harmless water vapor. Apps available for Samsung tablets and smartphones also make regulating room temperature remotely a breeze.


The connected lifestyle extends to doing business and this is made possible by the Samsung Smart Home Office Solution. Ranging from laser printers and notebooks, to LED monitors, all provide the ideal platform to wirelessly share information between the various devices for a clutter-free home office environment.


“Imagine a smarter, more connected way of living!” says Potgieter. “It is not only about promoting products and solutions, but more so around the philosophy of how the future is indeed a connected and smarter one and Samsung is there every step of the way!”
