SmartThings was acquired by Samsung this time last year, although the company has taken its time creating products that are distinctly Samsung.
In April the company revealed that it would delay the new SmartThings Hub and sensors, as it worked on improving the performance and stability.
The modular SmartThings system is designed to be as simple as possible.
Through an array of plug and play sensors, Samsung is hoping to dominate the self-install smart home market before its competitors get the chance to jump in.
In early September, Samsung will ship the SmartThings Hub along with a new line of sensors and an enhanced mobile App experience.
Customers who already own SmartThings products have been informed that there would be no requirement to order the new hub, although those that opt to do so for the improved reliability, will have to reconnect all their devices.
Samsung is staying tight lipped regarding the new features of the new hub and App, although it promised to reveal more closer to release.
Pricing has been set at $99 (£65) for those wanting to pre-order the new hub, although a UK release date has not yet been confirmed.
Samsung has its sights set on the UK, where the plug and play home automation market is still growing at a rapid rate.
What affect growth in the plug and play market will have on the professional installer is as yet not totally clear, but increased awareness of smart home technology has to be seen as an opportunity and not a problem.
