Samsung has updated its SmartThings Find service with the ability to share the location of our devices with others.
In SmartThings, Samsung has one of the most advanced home automation ecosystems in the business. It also offers a test program to convert our old cell phones into noise and light sensors.
Samsung announced a new service last year to help us find corporate devices that had been misplaced… or anything linked to them, which was the purpose of SmartTags. It was called SmartThings Find.
The milestone has now been achieved after the service had more than 100 million nodes, according to the firm. This implies that if we lose our Samsung cell phone, headset, smartwatch, or another device with a Bluetooth connection, we can still utilize 100 million beacons.
Sharing location with Samsung SmartThings Find
SmartThings Find now has a new feature called Members that allows us to invite up to 19 more people into the group of users who know where our devices are.
This way, if our phone is stolen, we may use someone else’s to find it without having to utilize a computer to enter our profile.
The Samsung SmartThings Find Members app has been created to be able to find our pets, as long as they have a SmartTag inserted, and allow other family members to locate it from their SmartThings Find profile.
Obviously, we must give our express consent and permission of the other user to Samsung in order for it to access its location and use that data to find the device being sought after on the same map on which the device will appear.
