Samsung wants to turn your old smartphone into an IoT device

Galaxy Upcycling at Home

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an expanding technology, making our homes smarter. Taking advantage of this trend, and its participation in CES 2021. Samsung announced a new initiative that aims to make the smartphone a smart device for the home.

The South Korean presented today the project Galaxy Upcycling at Home. The purpose of this initiative is to breathe new life into your old Galaxy smartphone and turn it into a valuable accessory in your smart home.

Galaxy Upcycling at Home will breathe new life into your Samsung smartphone

Through a software update, Samsung is committed to giving new life to its older smartphones. In an era when most companies tend to make their equipment obsolete more quickly, the South Korean takes a step in the opposite direction.

Without going into too much detail, Samsung gave us some examples of what we can do with this program. How can we make our old smartphone relevant again in our home life.

One example is to turn your old smartphone into a baby monitor. The equipment can detect the baby’s crying and automatically send a notification to the parents’ smartphone.

Samsung also exemplifies how it will be possible to transform the smartphone into an ambient light sensor. As soon as he detects a shortage of light at home, you receive a notification to turn on the home lights, even if you are still at work.

It is believed that Samsung can enable more features as soon as the Galaxy Upcycling at Home initiative officially starts. In the era of the growth of smart homes, the potential is immense.

When will this come to users

Unfortunately, Samsung did not give further details about the release of this program to users. It has just been said that the software update in question will be sent soon.

If you have a Galaxy smartphone stopped and you are building a smart home, this is the ideal program for you. With this initiative, you will be able to revitalize an old investment.
