Samsung continues to take over companies that could prove essential for its future with Perch, a brand behind a do-it-yourself home monitoring software that keeps old smartphones or tablets alive, turning them into security cameras. Perch was born a few years ago thanks to Samsung's Accelerator Program, now known as Samsung Next.

According to Perch, "Our team will be working with Samsung groups around the world to develop next-generation IoT products." Unfortunately, the downside of this move is that the Perch home monitoring service is going down. Support is scheduled to end on February 17, and the beta app will be taken down from the Google Play store as well. On the same day, all recorded data is expected to be wiped, thus ensuring the users' security and privacy.

As it usually happens when such corporate acquisitions take place, the financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
