LUX KONO has been a strong seller for JCI – its combination of smart features coupled with its sleek design and affordable price point makes it a hit for homeowners. And now, the LUX KONOz, a ZigBee 3.0 certified smart hub thermostat is now integrated with Samsung SmartThings Hub.
What is Samsung SmartThings?
The Samsung SmartThings Hub allows users to connect wirelessly with a wide range of smart devices and make them work together. The platform is used to monitor and control connected devices in the home with the use of an app for iPhone or Android. Users can receive alerts from connected devices when there’s unexpected activity in their home.
With this integration to SmartThings, homeowners are able to connect KONOz to the hub so they can easily manage their indoor comfort by mobile app or by voice through in-house voice assistants. 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 so KONO can 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.
KONOz can be powered by 4 AA alkaline batteries for up to two years, C-wire or LUX Power Bridge (sold separately) and is designed for easy installation with tooless push terminals and 2h/1c universal system compatibility. It offers a simple and intuitive knob interface with easy access to menus, set-up and comfort control. KONOz is equipped with the market-leading Cortet EM357 module for superior RF performance and battery life.
