It seems today that almost everything can come with the “Smart” prefix, this implies that it is able to be controlled via a smartphone and app, yet we are still waiting to see something that is both smart and useful too! Maybe the SAM is able to step in here and turn something simple into a practical smart device, which will be used on a daily basis. The SAM smart home system is made up of two parts the first has the appearance of an extension lead for a mains power supply, while the other is a bit like a plug. However, this is where the similarities end, because both these devices allow the user to literally fully automate their home or office and control certain devices remotely through a connected smartphone.
There are several interesting features available with the SAM, to start with being able to remotely switch things on or off, schedule devices to come on or switch off, monitor electric usage and temperatures and finally it can sense the ambient light or from a security, aspect there is a motion sensor too. Turn your home into a smarthome from just $44 on pre order, the SAM plug should be launching before the end of the year!
