There’s also a Pro version with a 4 x 4 antenna which caps out at 1.7 Gbps

Designed to work as SmartThings hubs, Samsung claims that their new network offering allows owners to better control smart home devices especially Samsung connected devices such as a TV, Sound System, Smartphone, PC or an S3 Smart Watch.

You can also manage third party devices such as security cameras, Philips Hue or a Ring doorbell. It works with Zigbee, Z-Wave, and also has Bluetooth 4.1
