Various consumer electronics products of Samsung are connecting via the Smart Things IoT platform. With this automation solution you can easily control and monitor compatible smart-home devices via the corresponding smartphone app. Today, the Korean manufacturer has submitted a trademark application that indicates that Samsung intends to expand its SmartThings solution soon, making it possible to measure the air quality of your environment.
Check the air quality via your smartphone
On March 15, 2019, Samsung Electronics filed a trademark application for SmartThings Air with EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office). The trademark was filed in Madrid, Spain by intermediary Abril Abogados. This company has often acted in the name of Samsung, so earlier this year the trademark was applied for Neuro Game Booster.
The application is classified as Class 9/42, with a very detailed description; ‘Software for operating home automation systems, including lighting, heating, air conditioning, alarm, and other safety equipment. Electric sensors for measuring the air quality for monitoring, control, and automation of the environment. Sensors for detecting air quality in the form of volatile gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, pollen or toxins in the air. Sensors for detecting the temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, oxygen, and nitrogen concentration in the air. Software for displaying the data received from the air quality sensors. ”
In the (near) future, this will probably make it possible to measure the air quality in your immediate environment with Samsung mobile devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. Are you in a polluted area? Then you will automatically receive an alert so that you can never be unexpectedly attacked by carbon monoxide poisoning or other gases that can endanger your health. Something you regularly hear about in the news.
Although Samsung already offers various devices and solutions to monitor air quality, it is, of course, unique if this is also possible via your smartphone. For example, it no longer matters in which environment you are, the air quality is always measured and checked for you automatically, and you immediately receive a signal in the event of danger.
