Connect accessory devices to Samsung smart devices

The Accessory SDK provides a single communications protocol that you can integrate into your Samsung smart device and accessory device apps that:

  • Supports multiple connectivity technologies, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth classic, and BLE (Bluetooth v4.0). 
  • Eliminates connectivity issues and dealing with network protocols.
  • Enables you to configure Accessory Service profiles and roles for Accessory peer agents.
  • The Accessory File Transfer SDK allows you to transfer files between devices using any type of connectivity supported by the Samsung Accessory Service Framework. 
  • Enables your users to:
    • Control their smart device remotely from their accessory devices (for example, controlling music volume)
    • Provide notification relay or alarm
    • Find their smart device
