Samsung is working with Tesla as an official partner to integrate Tesla into the SmartThings ecosystem. Allowing users to integrate their Tesla products into their smart home setup. Joining names like MyQ as official partners making use of the Tesla API.
SmartThings is one of the largest and most popular smart home solutions that offers some of the widest support for various brands and ecosystems. Bringing everything together onto centralized hub solution. So it was only time before this partnership was going to come into existence.
This was one of Samsung’s highlights this CES 2024. It will allow users to track and monitor energy usage, starting with the Powerwall battery systems and eventually including additional products as the rollout continues. The initial rollout will start sometimes within the second quarter of this year.
The last few years have been exciting as smart home technologies have been moving way from the basics and into more advanced partnerships. Some of this is thanks to a much larger acceptance of the idea that companies need to combine their resources in order to make these ecosystems work. Giving birth to new technologies like the new Matter protocol and new partnerships like this one. Giving hope to a smart future with talking cars and fully automated homes.
For now, partnerships like these will be the building blocks of things to come. Allowing us to create scenes and automations to better adjust to these coming changes. Like never forgetting to charge your car when it is low on power. As it would be nice to automatically get a notice from your digital assistant or AI as you park your car if it is below a certain percentage.
