From Get Ready with Me to POV, Martha Stewart Shares Her Take on Smart Living


Elevating your living experience goes beyond revamped floor plans, new furniture, and updated décor. While these touches can refresh the look and feel of your home, the real game-changer lies in embracing smart home innovations. Creating a smart home will not only transform your space into a sanctuary, but also boost productivity (because there’s never enough time in the day!), allowing you to reintroduce fun into your life.

Don’t believe us? Just ask Martha Stewart. As a known early adopter, the queen of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary loves to embrace innovation in all its forms. In fact, she considers innovation the secret ingredient behind her enduring home and hospitality success.

Unlocking Your Smart Home’s Potential

Earlier this year, Samsung had the opportunity to collaborate with Martha in Las Vegas at CES 2024. The focus of the collaboration? Samsung SmartThings – powered by AI.

SmartThings allows you to connect all your smart devices and manage your home with a single, easy-to-use app. And Martha demonstrated how connected tech and AI can level up our homes and redefine how we live, allowing us to focus on what truly matters – the fun stuff. Speaking of F-U-N, did you know that Samsung SmartThings users say that convenience and fun are the main reasons they started using SmartThings? 1

Picture this: Martha transported CES attendees to The Bedford, her Las Vegas restaurant, to make her famous Smashed Baked Potato. Using SmartThings, integrated with Samsung’s AI-enabled Family Hub+ Refrigerator, she checked if they had all the necessary ingredients using AI Vision Inside. Then, with SmartThings handling tasks like initiating a laundry cycle or adjusting the thermostat, she now had the luxury of time to make a Vegas-style “Marthatini.” Lastly, Martha effortlessly used the SmartThings app on her Galaxy Watch6 to set the perfect lighting for a glamorous atmosphere.

#GRWM: Getting Party Ready with Martha (and Her Furry Friends!)

Next, Martha graciously invited Samsung behind the scenes as she got ready for a party at her home in Bedford, New York. With the Samsung SmartThings app at her fingertips, Martha seamlessly multitasked from the hair and make-up chair before her guests arrived.

To ensure her home was pet-ready for the party, Martha checked in on her beloved black French Bulldog, Luna Moona. Thanks to SmartThings, Martha was able to livestream Luna’s activities in real-time using her Jet Bot AI+’s front camera, ensuring she was content. She then connected to her outdoor camera system through the app to see the status of her Sicilian miniature donkeys, Clive and Rufus, as they roamed the farm.
