      Purchased these for my new washer and dryer (xx45K6500xx series). Setup was pretty straight forward once I figured out that these adapters were not compatible with my new AC access points. I was unable to complete the setup until I connected the washer and dryer to the wifi on an older (non AC) router. Maybe I could have gotten them to work on the newer access points, but wasn't really worth the effort to me, since the adapter doesn't talk directly to your phone app, but instead uses Samsung as a middle tier. This means that your phone and washer/dryer do not necessarily need to be on the same WiFi network. You have to do the setup for each new phone. So if you have two phones, you will do the security setup on the washer twice and on the dryer twice. On to functionality...once you have everything setup and talking, if you want to control your washer or dryer from your phone, you have to power on, close the door, and press the Smart Control button on each appliance…which is so much better than setting your washer or dryer cycles while standing in front of them. Btw, once the load is done, and the washer or dryer powers off, you will have to repeat the steps, including manually turning the Smart Control back on. So what do you get if you don't use Smart Control? You can monitor the progress of your wash/dry load, and you will get notifications if something goes wrong or the load completes. Samsung gets to monitor the appliances and collect data on how you use your washer and dryer. I can see this being useful in a roommate situation, or perhaps your in-house staff should be kept apprised whilst they perform other chores, or your house is so large that you can’t hear the annoying 30 second completions tones, or you have $50 burning a hole pocket and you just like technology, or you must obsessively monitor the status of your washing/drying, or you want to make sure Samsung is in the loop on your laundry…well then, these adapters might be just the ticket. For me they are a bit like adding a 5th tine to a fork…sure you can…but why?

      Horrible product

      Bought two of these adapters for my washer and dryer. Set up was easy but the app instructions are wrong. I had to look at the owners manual that came with my washer and dryer to figure out how to set it up. Set up took about 2 mins after that. Once set up, everything worked as expected. Was able to start my washer and dryer and see how many mins were left on each cycle, but after a few mins I opened the app to check on things, and it said my washer was disconnected. Then a few more mins later, it said my dryer was disconnected. Had to hold the smart control button down again and then I was able to see it connected. Then after 10 mins, it was disconnected again. I finally gave up and will be returning these things cause they are a total waste of money. They worked great when they work, but that’s hardly ever. I have a excellent WiFi signal in the room they are located, but they always disconnect from my WiFi.

      Three stars is accurate

      I wanted to be the first on to give this a positive review. Unfortunately, this device is exactly as the other reviews indicate. I ran into a minor glitch in set up but it was easily resolved. It connects to the internet fairly easily. In order for this device to work, you must press the Smart Control button. On the washer, it locks the door. I thought you would be able to see the status of you loads or get a message when complete. Only if you press the smart control button. if you don't the appliances are offline. So, if I load the washer with clothes, why would I want to take these extra steps to have my phone control this? It takes time for it to connect to the internet and this slows the process down. I don't think I will ever use it. As the previous reviews indicate, don;t waste your money on this device. Hopefully, Samsung will develop a firmware update to improve this. Samsung is better than this.

      Works well, but with limited functionality

      I bought the smart home adapter for my Samsung refrigerator. I was looking for a specific adapter for the refrigerator, but it turns out that there is only single Samsung adapter for appliances. I plugged it into my refrigerator, downloaded the app, and synced up the two. For some reason, there are two separate apps available and they both offer the same functionality. It works well, but offers limited control over what can be done. One can only monitor the temperature of the fridge and freezer; there is no way to change the said temperatures. The adjustments include turning the ice dispenser, power freeze and power cool on/off. That's about it. One interesting option is keep track of energy usage over the course of days/weeks/months. Overall, satisfied, but I wish there was a way to change the temperatures, especially, on the flex drawer.

      Works for Fridge/Freezer

      I'm using this dongle with a Samsung Fridge/Freezer, model RF23M8070SR. The dongle does everything I expected, which isn't all that much, but now Alexa can tell me what the temperature is in the freezer or refrigerator, she might also be able to do other things that the Samsung Smart Home app can do (turn off icemaker, etc) but I need to play around with it more. Setup went fine, luckily I'd read some reviews that said to switch to airplane mode on your phone (Nexus 6) - which I had to do before it would find my wifi network. Connecting to Alexa was easy, I just enabled the Samsung Smart Home skills, I tried discovering the device in the alexa app but it couldn't find the fridge. Seems it works fine with just the skill enabled. It would be handy if Alexa could tell me if the fridge door was open, but it doesn't seem to. I give it 4 stars because it does what I expected, but it should do more for the price.

      It could have been a lot better. Setup took some time figuring out. Smart controls have to be enabled everytime to use it meaningfully so that's a bummer. Also, electric usage is only viewable when smart controls are enabled while doing a load. Also, shared with my spouse but it asks to register device again - so go through whole setup - bummer. Shows machine as disconnected at all times except when running a load. Basically a glorified notification gadget for laundry being complete. Samsung should be giving these along with the machine for the feature set. Hopefully, future software updates make this more usable.

      Works after a couple of tries

      It's a pretty straightforward device. Just plug it into your dryer (I had a Samsung 14 Cycle Electric Dryer, Model DV50K7500EV), install the Samsung Smart Home app and then follow the instructions on screen for adding the washer/dryer. I had some issues when I added my dryer for the first time. The smart home app told me that there was a problem with my dryer's wifi connection and gave me some unhelpful advice about my internet connection. I removed the dryer and added it back again, and it magically worked the second time around.

      Works but the needed iOS/Android app is useless

      These seem to work as they should, they connect to the router. However, we don't get the benefit of having these because the Samsung Smart Home app is absolutely terrible. At first I was getting notifications when my loads were done but I'd have to make sure to open the Samsung app on my phone or I'd never get a notification. Now, it only tells me when a door is open or something and never when a load is done nor does it tell me how much time is left anymore. Samsung needs to work on their Smart Home app so that these adapters actually do their job!!
