Untitled design (13)

SmartThings, Samsung’s global connected living platform, announced a collaboration with Eve Systems, transforming home energy management through advanced power monitoring and expanding the number of SmartThings compatible brands and products that support energy management. With Eve Energy, a Matter-compatible smart plug and power meter, consumers will now be able to track energy consumption for everyday appliances and devices right through the SmartThings app, helping to reduce their carbon footprint and ultimately save money.

SmartThings users can reduce power consumption by monitoring individual devices connected to Eve’s smart plug, finally answering the question, “How much does that light actually cost me?” For instance, users can track an appliance such as a coffee machine to calculate its power usage and monthly cost. Armed with this insight, consumers can make more informed decisions to reduce utility bills by creating automation routines and setting timers to optimize energy usage via SmartThings.

Building on the success of SmartThings Energy, this integration tracks the energy use of existing devices and appliances. Furthermore, users can integrate their non-Samsung appliances, fostering cross-platform compatibility and making energy savings accessible to a wider range of users. Eve Energy works with SmartThings through Matter, a new, unifying standard for smart home connectivity. Built on Thread, Eve Energy connects directly to compatible SmartThings hubs and therefore works right out of the box.

The feature is supported within devices with SmartThings Hub technology and is designed to work on both Android and Apple devices. All the details are here.
