LUX KONOz Speaks to Samsung SmartThings Hub via ZigBee PlatformJohnson Controls Inc. today announced that its KONOz smart thermostat is now integrated with the leading Samsung SmartThings Hub. The Samsung SmartThings Hub allows users to connect wirelessly with a wide range of smart devices and make them work together. With this integration, homeowners are able to connect their smart thermostat to the hub so they can easily manage their indoor comfort by mobile app or by voice through in-house voice assistants. KONOz is the industry’s first smart thermostat to be ZigBee 3.0 certified.

Homeowners can easily connect KONOz to the SmartThings hub and immediately begin to manage their indoor comfort. Users can receive alerts about their indoor temperature right to their phone – making it easy to adjust the thermostat up or down with a quick swipe on the app. Samsung SmartThings is also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home enabling KONO to receive spoken commands as well. In addition to seamlessly connecting to Samsung SmartThings Hub, KONOz comes in an attractive white finish and offers additional Interchangeable Décor-snap™ covers in nine trend-setting colors for added personalization and is priced at $149 MSRP.
