Have you ever stopped and wondered why family and friends tend to congregate in the kitchen? The household kitchen was originally designed as a space for preparing and cooking meals. However, over the past few decades, it has morphed into the heart of the home, and it is not difficult to see why.
The kitchen is the most important room in your home because it is the centre of your family’s day-to-day living. Nearly all of us begin our day in the kitchen, with breakfast and coffee to kickstart the day. It is where we gather with our family to partake in lunch and dinner as a connected unit and is also where memories are made. More than simply meals, it is now a space that functions as a makeshift office, an entertainment hub, or even simply a place for relaxation and leisure activities at the end of the day.
It is with this understanding that Samsung has made its award-winning Family Hub smart fridge features available in the SmartThings app, in its effort to provide innovative strides in offering families smarter and more seamless kitchen experiences.
Smarter Meal Planning from Screen to Table
Food is naturally an integral part to the kitchen, and as people spend more time in the kitchen cooking and seeking out new recipes, the Samsung’s Family Hub connected to SmartThings can become your right-hand man that enables you to search, plan, purchase, and prep weekly meals, on a single platform accessible to you anywhere, any time.
Enabled by SmartThings, View Inside can help you to see what’s inside the fridge anytime, anywhere on your smartphone, track expiry dates, and recommend recipes with its Recipes App, allowing you to have personalised recipes based on your unique tastes and preferences – dependent on what you have available. Curating personalised meals and creating the perfect meal plans for your family can be efficiently done, and you no longer will have to go through the head-scratching frustration on what’s for dinner. If you need more ingredients, the Shopping List App comes in handy to supplement your meal plans and grocery needs easily by adding items to your shopping list with a touch or voice command. Powered by the fridge’s View Inside feature, it allows you to look into the fridge through its built-in cameras without having to open its doors, offering you convenience at your fingertips.
Powerful Capabilities Enabling Greater Convenience
More than just a meal planner and your grocery manager, Samsung’s Family Hub also brings with it brand-new capabilities that makes it the centre of your smart home. When connected to the SmartThings app, the screen – also known as the Family Board – can function as a smartphone and connect with other smart appliances to help you and your family to keep track and control your activities all day long. Whether it is for work or leisure, the Family Board allows you to create memos and to-do lists, making it easier to stay on top of ongoing activities.
More than that, you can also share happy moments with your family by using the Family Board to upload photos, videos, post stickers, draw pictures, share schedules, website links, and even add a music player, allowing everyone to share experiences and be better connected with one another. To fulfil more entertainment and leisure needs, simply use the SmartView App to watch TV programs, access online content, or even display what is showing on your Samsung Smart TV. With widgets to launch popular video streaming or social media apps, the Family Hub is truly the one-stop centre for work and leisure. When combined with Bixby, its Voice Assistant, the Family Hub is able to recognise individual voices and personalise information according to the user. This means the entire family can rely on the Family Hub as it caters to each of their needs separately.
Stylish Accessory Powered by Innovative Technology
Samsung’s Side by Side with Family Hub is available in black with its unique feature that caters to different family preferences and home plans. It features a sleek and seamless form, with elegant flat doors and recessed handles that complement every modern kitchen. With its SpaceMax technology™, the walls of the fridge are much thinner using high efficiency insulation. This means there is more room inside the fridge without increasing the external dimensions or compromising energy efficiency.
On energy efficiency, the Family Hub is built with Digital Inverter Technology, providing better energy usage while maintaining less noise and providing a long-lasting performance for your family. The Digital Inverter Compressor automatically adjusts its speed in response to cooling demand, making it quieter and using up to 50% less power. It is certified to work for 21 years, backed up by a 10-year warranty.
The Family Hub is more than just a fridge, but a smart and reliable multifunctional device that helps you with your daily tasks and bring your family together closer than ever be it for work, leisure, or entertainment.
