Debuting today at CES, Samsung announced its enhanced upcycling program, reimagining the use of old cell phones, and bringing the devices into new roles. Consumers can now decide how to repurpose their Galaxy devices for various functions throughout the home. Leveraging the power of SmartThings technology, users can:
- Upcycle a Galaxy device into a childcare tool. Using sensors within the phone, users can incorporate into SmartThings and can leverage the phone to monitor audio around a baby and send alerts if it hears crying.
- Turn a Galaxy device into a long-distance remote to turn on scenes and automations through SmartThings.
- Turn the devices into sensors, monitoring cams, pet cams, fitness cams, table clocks, music players, and integrate within all the current products in the SmartThings ecosystem.
