SmartThings Find is an innovative service within the SmartThings application, available on select Galaxy devices1 – including the Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra – featuring powerful detection capabilities that help users find the things that matter most, near or far. It can accurately locate Samsung Galaxy devices2 and any personal items – such as a backpack, wallet, or keys – with a Galaxy SmartTag attached through an intuitive tracking interface. And now, with the addition of Galaxy SmartTag+ utilizing Trimension UWB and Bluetooth® Low Energy, users can take advantage of augmented reality technology to visually guide them towards their missing item using their smartphone's camera3.
UWB makes users aware of the location of their personal items, giving them peace of mind. It brings us one step closer to a smart connected world where objects can communicate with each other to anticipate, automate, and enable new experiences.
"SmartThings Find is a simple and visual solution that will help you easily locate your favorite items. With the added advantage of using AR4 in conjunction with maps and sounds to guide you back to your devices with a Galaxy SmartTag+ attached, the SmartThings Find experience has become even more powerful: it makes people’s everyday lives easier, more convenient and safer," said
"NXP's Trimension technology helps deliver precision when it counts and enables new and future possibilities," said
