Like the Philips Hue Hub, Samsung came out with the same thing but little different. Samsung Smart Things Smart Hub is a way to connect a wide range of lights, speakers, locks, thermostats, sensors, and more. If you choose to go the Samsung route you can download the Smartthings app to start linking and controlling threw app. It has a power wall in adapter with about 10 hours of backup power to your device. It is compatible with brands like Honeywell, Philips Hue, and Kwikset.
