First, because it plugs-n-plays with your Plume network. Powered by the Plume Adaptive WiFi™ technology, the SmartThings Wifi devices speak the same language as your Pods and SuperPods.
Second, because SmartThings Wifi contains a powerful SmartThings Hubyou get to add Samsung home automation to your Plume set-up - lights, cameras, door locks, thermostats, voice assistants, various sensors, smart outlets, and much more. With the latest and greatest Zigbee, Z-wave, and Bluetooth 4.1 radios and protocols, it’s compatible with hundreds of third party devices and services. It gets even better. Since the SmartThings Wifi speaks Plume, you can place your Hub anywhere in your home – no Ethernet cable required!
Third, the Plume Android and iOS apps give you visibility and control of the Wi-Fi functions of the SmartThings Wifi. Think of it as another pod in your home but with smart home automation capability. Enjoy the features of the Plume app also on your SmartThings Wifi.
Last but not least, because it’s a fantastic bargain only for Plume members. You will soon be able to add SmartThings Wifi devices to your Plume membership via plume.com for $89 each (they are regularly $119.99) or for $169 for a 3-pack (regularly $279.99). More to come on this soon.
When we launched the Plume membership along with the SuperPod™ in June of this year, we delivered a comprehensive list of features, capabilities, and benefits, and pledged that we would keep making your Plume membership richer. Ability to add third party devices like the SmartThings Wifi with a smart home hub easily, wirelessly, and economically to your Plume network is just one. Stay tuned for more.
And in that spirit, we trust that this initiative is just the beginning of more to come from our valued partnership with Samsung. Special thanks to Samsung Mobile and Smart Home teams.
