SamsungSmartHome-Thumb

Samsung makes absolutely anything and everything that can fit inside a home. Whether it's the TV showing the big game, the refrigerator chilling the beer, the computer keeping track of everyone's fantasy rosters, the phone you silenced so no one can nag, or the washing machine needed to get that nacho cheese stain out, Sammy's got you covered. Now the Korean conglomerate has dropped an app in the Play Store for controlling many of its appliances from a single location, along with the requisite plugins to make it happen.

Samsung's Smart Home app provides a clean and conversational interface for controlling things remotely, regardless of whether or not you're at home. It's promising, especially if you happen to already own a house filled with the company's newer appliances. If not, though, taking complete advantage of this app may be one of the more expensive tech-oriented tasks you set your mind to.

Some appliances require a separate plugin to integrate with the app, and we've provided links to the new ones below. The software's all free to use, thankfully, because keeping everything else up and running is costly enough on its own.

    But is it compatible with other brands? Or only with Samsung phones?

      Seems to only be compatible with my Note 2, I have a nexus 7 as well and it says not compatible.

      I don't have any other devices to check, though

      On the play it's say it is compatible with my LG Nexus 4, but not my Samsung Nexus 10. I don't understant anything anymore.
