"Samsung Electronics newly introduced Bespoke Refrigerator Family Hub provides a vastly expanded experience as much as the larger screen. We will lead the innovation and evolution of refrigerators by reflecting style trends," Junhwa Lee, vice president of Samsung Electronics' home appliance division, said in a statement.
The integrated SmartThings hub controls and monitors multiple SmartThings devices and supports six SmartThings Home Life services -- Air Care, Home Care, Pet Care, Clothing Care, Energy, and Cooking, said the company.
The Amazon Your Essentials service is also supported by the new refrigerator, allowing users to order frequently purchased products and groceries via a widget on its touchscreen display.
Since the SmartThings hub is built-in, users can use the refrigerator as a home IoT hub by controlling lights, blinds, switches, motion detection sensors, and door open sensors from various companies with the Family Hub, the company added.
