Samsung SmartThings Find hits 100 million find nodes
Samsung Electronics recently revealed that the SmartThings Find service, which was first launched in October 2020, continues to grow rapidly, now comprising more than 100 million find nodes. Powered by SmartThings, the premier technology enabling connected living, around 230,000 devices are located through this feature every day. “We’re incredibly proud of how quickly the SmartThings Find service has grown in less than a year, helping people all over the world locate hundreds of thousands of misplaced devices every day,” said, Managing Director, Samsung Sri Lanka, Kevin SungSu YOU.
“SmartThings Find is yet another example of how Samsung is continuing to create meaningful new experiences that help make life more convenient and less stressful. We are grateful to all our consumers that helped us reach this milestone,” he added. The fast-growing SmartThings Find service enables users to pinpoint registered Galaxy smartphones, smartwatches, earbuds and even S Pen Pro, as well as personal belongings, like keys or wallets, that have a Galaxy SmartTag or SmartTag+ device attached.
SmartThings Find, a standout feature of the SmartThings ecosystem, uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology to locate misplaced devices. Even if the device is offline, other Galaxy users can opt-in to enable their Galaxy smartphone or tablet to help others find nearby lost devices. SmartThings Find is continuing to evolve with the addition of the newly launched SmartThings Find Members service, which now enables users to invite friends and family to become members of their SmartThings account, so they too can find and manage their devices.
Users can now invite up to 19 other people to become members and locate up to 200 devices at once. Once someone has accepted the invitation to SmartThings Find members, one can opt for them to view selected devices and locations for specific devices, all upon one’s consent.
