How to connect to Smart Things on my Samsung dryer?

Last Update date : 2022-12-27

SmartThings is a function that conveniently controls and manages smart home appliances and Internet of Things (IoT) devices with a smartphone. From the outside, you can monitor and control the status of various devices, such as smart devices, home appliances, TVs, speakers, etc. registered on the server. It is a next-generation platform service that will unify Samsung's products as an open-source platform that can connect not only our products but also other IoTs.
