Samsung SmartThings Energy is partnering with British Gas to reduce energy bills around Britain. This collaboration will enable customers to better manage their energy use in homes as well as integrate British Gas’ PeakSave incentive program.

Integration of SmartThings Energy’s Auto Demand Response (Auto DR) feature with British Gas’ PeakSave in Great Britain is one of the core outcomes of this collab.  PeakSave rewards British Gas customers for shifting their electricity usage during peak hours when electricity demand is high.

Customers can easily take advantage of the program through SmartThings Energy’s support for Auto DR, which automatically adjusts appliances’ operating modes when an event is triggered. Additionally, customers can then earn money for using less electricity during the events.

Methods for activating SmartThings Energy’s Auto DR feature:

  1. It can automatically turn on the AI Energy Mode in SmartThings Energy to save extra energy use in the supported appliances.
  2. With the power-off function, users can consume less energy from having their appliances turned off when appropriate — this includes certain third-party lights and plugs.
  3. Savings can also be achieved through smart temperature adjustment for EHS (Heatpump) products and third-party thermostats.

Circle to Search in-line translation support

Circle to Search feature may be available on the iOS platform this year. In an exciting development, folks over at the Mac Observer discovered that Google is preparing to upgrade Chrome for iOS with Android’s awesome Circle to Search feature.
