After being originally shown at CES 2024, Samsung Electronics has now made its 3D Map View function available in all nations with SmartThings access. The company made this announcement today.

Using the SmartThings app, Map View transforms physical floor layouts into virtual depictions, simplifying home management. At any time and location, users can easily control lighting, temperature, air quality, and energy usage while still being able to view their gadgets properly.

By removing the need to locate each item individually before using it, Map View simplifies the administration of the increasing number of linked devices in homes across the globe. When more devices are linked, it automatically refreshes to provide customers a comprehensive view of their entire house.

The previous version of Map View was a 2D representation that was limited to homes with a floor plan. But this recently revised 3D Map View uses the LiDAR1 sensors in Samsung devices, like the Bespoke Jet BotTM, to precisely measure and map the layout of a home. This is made possible by Spatial AI in Samsung devices. With 3D maps, customers are able to understand the layout and dimensions of their homes with greater ease.

Additionally, the feature’s filter capability has been improved to provide more effective device control and monitoring. By the end of the year, it hopes to provide a more personalized and approachable smart service with the usage of AI characters, which were also introduced at CES 2024.


TVs and mobile devices running iOS and Android can access Map View via the SmartThings app. Within the first part of the year, controls for the feature will also be accessible through other hubs, like Family HubTM refrigerators.

Last year, Map View was first made available in the US and Korea. However, it is now usable in any nation where the SmartThings app is available.

Seungbeom Choi, Head of Device Platform Center at Samsung Electronics, stated, “Map View is the result of Samsung’s constant efforts to enable customers to control their home devices without any inconvenience at any time and place.” “To ensure that our customers have the best possible smart home experiences and a better quality of life, we will keep introducing a range of relevant services and features.”

Samsung is working with building businesses right now to bring Map View into flats and offices in addition to homes. By increasing features, the company hopes to assist clients all over the world in creating smart surroundings. These include Quick Control, which makes it simple for users to access important features, and an improved user experience (UX) for big screens that helps B2B operators with signage.
