A victor of the 2018 CES Best of Innovation award, Family Hub sets a new standard for connected living. Apart from that, Samsung is also introducing the new Family Hub to its smart fridge, which offers control for other Samsung SmartThings compatible devices such as light bulbs, thermostats from the fridge itself, there's also support for Bixby Voice, which can theoretically recognize voice of individuals and shows different results when a command is given. The award-winning smart fridge now gets a new version and as early as now, we know that it's also a victor after receiving the "2018 CES Best of Innovation" award in Las Vegas. The smart home industry is slow in advancing but we have a feeling it will go bigger this year.

Samsung says Bixby "enables easier interaction between the TV and its users, thanks to its intuitive UX, and comprehensive voice analysis capabilities".

Like Amazon Alexa, Bixby can be controlled by your voice, and can help you out with daily tasks. The Family Hub also integrates with grocery delivery apps like Instacart.

The headline feature of Samsung's latest model involves syncing up your food storage with meal preparation functions - like recipe suggestions. SmartThings Cloud would allow people to control all their Internet-of-Things devices from a single app, instead of having one for each gadget. "We've been listening closely to current users and created a new Family Hub that's even smarter and more advanced than before", said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances, Samsung Electronics America.

Now, let it be known that a Family Hub fridge is not cheap, with prices ranging from around $2,000 to almost $4,000.

If you don't fancy hearing all the awful meetings you have coming up then you might want to use the speaker system, which can stream music directly from your connected smartphone to be broadcast through the high-quality AKG speakers built into the doors.
