4 Ways to Maximize Summer Travel with the Power of Samsung Connection

As we head into the summer season, the travel revival is in full swing for leisure travelers in the United States. In fact, the majority of adults (85%) are planning to travel this summer and many are taking longer vacations than they did last year, according to a recent Harris poll. Notably, many are choosing to take the road this summer as more than 50% will travel by car as their means of transportation. So, whether you’re traveling or planning a road trip, Samsung will make your summer travel experience more convenient, fun, and easier than ever with a wide range of connected devices and solutions.

Here are four ways our connected ecosystem of products and solutions can make your summer travel more enjoyable, effortless, and memorable:

1. Start your summer vacation with peace of mind

When you’re away, you want peace of mind that all is well at home. And this starts with Samsung IoT’s SmartThings system. Compatible with connected Samsung products, as well as thousands of smart home devices like lights, security cameras, door locks and more, SmartThings makes managing your home easier than ever before. Right from your phone, tablet, TV, or Family Hub fridge, you can monitor and control what’s going on at home with the SmartThings app.

Most importantly, you want to be able to reduce and control your home’s energy consumption while you are away. With Samsung SmartThings Energy, you can monitor energy usage patterns and lower energy bills by automatically reducing energy consumption in HVAC appliances, smart appliances, and more while on the go. Consumers can customize settings and preferences to emphasize important things and set notifications through the SmartThings app.

2. Enjoy seamless communication on the road

With Auto Hotspot, Samsung offers an easy solution to turn your Galaxy smartphone into a portable hotspot. During a summer road trip with your kids or friends in the back seat, they can enjoy playing a game or watching a movie on WiFi, with minimal distractions while driving. All you have to do is hand them the tablet. That’s because once you’ve set up the automatic hotspot, you don’t need to do it again – it’s one and done. Samsung devices connect seamlessly, so you don’t have to fumble with settings while in the driver’s seat.

To enjoy and share your summer jams, Music Share is a new way to spread tunes across your Galaxy devices. When you’re on a road trip, you can team up with your friends on a playlist without getting distracted. Simply connect your device to the car’s speaker and your friends and family can wirelessly connect their phones to yours via Bluetooth to start sharing songs from their favorite music streaming app.

3. Enjoy an outdoor cinematic entertainment experience

With 53% of American travelers planning to camp in a national or state park this summer, you can create your own outdoor cinema experience either on the road or in your own backyard. Samsung has taken the amazing technology and personalization capabilities of our Smart TVs – and made them portable with The Freestyle. Weighing less than two pounds, it’s versatile and lightweight – making it the summertime must-have portable device. It’s a projector, smart speaker, and ambient lighting device all rolled into one. With The Freestyle, you can easily display your favorite content up to 100 inches on any surface using the 180 degree cradle. It delivers crystal clear sound designed to fill in the blanks – from a small tent to a large outdoor backdrop – using its advanced 360-degree bass. With Smart View on the Freestyle, you can watch your favorite shows just as you would at home or even connect your Galaxy device to watch videos you took from your road trip.

For those hosting friends and family this summer, turn your backyard into an entertaining outdoor haven with Outdoor Terrace TV – Designed for living outside, rain or shine. The amazing picture quality means you can watch your favorite show or movie, even when the sun is shining.

Then with multi view, you can watch multiple things on your TV at once. This means that while you’re playing a movie, you can make video calls with your friends while also mirroring your phone to view vacation photos – leaving your hands free to enjoy the delicacies of summer.

4. Embrace the freedom of the summer office

If you’re planning a long summer vacation, Samsung makes it easy to get the work done without putting in too much effort. Be productive wherever you go by using the TabS8 as a second screen with the Galaxy Book2 Pro. It basically creates a two-screen setup so you can work seamlessly across devices. And if you’re looking to take your home office to the next level, check out the new 32-inch M8 UHD 4K Smart Monitor – a 4K Smart TV and monitor in one, with a SlimFit camera in the box. Your favorite content, productivity, and video calling apps built in for a simpler, more elegant office setup.
