A SmartThings Demo with Samsung at CES 2024

Having a strong interest in technology and wanting to be informed of all the latest advances and gadgets, I always try to attend CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. I hope you caught my post about it on my Instagram page @MarthStewart48 - we had so much fun!

This year, I attended the multi-day trade event as Samsung’s special guest. We did an incredible demo in their very high-tech kitchen at the Samsung booth showcasing SmartThings, the company's innovative new products collection using on-device AI and intelligent integration. It is their connected ecosystem developed to make life easier at home. CMO of Samsung North America, Allison Stransky, introduced me. And then, our own Kevin Sharkey and Thomas Joseph, joined me to show how to make the perfect smashed baked potato - the same way we do it at my restaurant, The Bedford by Martha Stewart. We showed Samsung’s AI-enabled Family Hub+ Refrigerator which helps determine if all the ingredients for a specific recipe are ready using its AI Vision Inside. When it’s time to start cooking, SmartThings knows to connect the fridge to the connected oven & start pre-heating. Then SmartThings on the Samsung TV gives an alert when the food is done. We also made Marthatinis - the perfect drink with my smashed baked potato. And I tried Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6. In all, it was a great event and demo. My favorite phrase “it’s a good thing” may now become “it’s a SmartThing” after this latest CES visit. Be sure to click on this highlighted link to watch the video! You'll love it. And, be sure to follow Samsung on Instagram @SamsungUS to learn more about their innovative products.

Here are a few photos. I will share more images from this fascinating event in my next blog. Stay tuned.
