Samsung is bringing ZigBee wireless technology in future smartphones. This means the future Samsung Galaxy smartphones will directly control everything from light switches to heating and security for a complete home automation.
Samsung is essentially hoping to turn its next devices into “home smartphones” that provide all of the functionality its current handsets deliver, while providing full control over the fixtures and components in a house. Currently, users need a remote to connect to ZigBee-friendly products.
Apart from Samsung, HTC and other smartphone manufacturers are also considering to bring ZigBee support to their future smartphones.
