Samsung One UI 5.0 Smart home devices controller
Currently, the One UI 4.1 Lock Screen Settings doesn’t have any options to ley you control your smart home products on the lock screen . Meanwhile Android 13 One UI 5.0 will come with a toggle to enable a feature named “Control from locked device”.
When you enable this toggle on, it will give you access to some device controls on the lock screen. It should be noted that Samsung One UI 5.0 Smart home devices controller is not ment to give users the option to select which Device Controls are available when their phone is locked.
Instead of this, app developers will have to pick whether or not certain Device Controls are available on locked phones. For instance, this feature will not be available until developers update their apps to support the functionality.
However, at this moment, we can’t confirm which device controls will be available on locked devices, as the feature isn’t yet detailed by Samsung and remains to be seen in One UI 5.0 beta.
