SmartThings is the brain of your smart home. It connects wirelessly with a wide range of smart devices and makes them work together.
SmartThings allows you to monitor, control, and automate a wide range of connected devices in your home. For example, you can set connected lights to turn on and off at the touch of a button, at the same time each day, when you open doors and windows, when motion is detected in your home, or when you say “Turn on the kitchen lights.”
SmartThings works with a wide range of connected devices, including lights, speakers, locks, thermostats, sensors, and more. Look for the “Works with SmartThings” label next time you’re buying a connected device for your home.
SmartThings is completely free to use. You do not need to pay a monthly subscription to use SmartThings.
I have had a Samsung SmartThings HubV2 for a number of years and it has always worked reasonably well although the app was not very good and difficult to use so when they upgraded the app I was quite pleased until I came to try and use it. I upgraded the app but could not connect it to my hub although the software continued to work so I contacted the Helpdesk and they advised me to reset my SmartThings Hub which I did but it still would not connect to the app. I have tried this procedure numerous times together with soft reset and router reset but to no avail. I have also contacted the SmartThings Support Team several times but with no response except from their Spares Dept telling me there will be a delay in supplying the parts - no idea what this refers to and no explanation. Looking at some of the Support Forums I am not alone in being left in the dark with no response and with numerous people with the same problem - so if you experience a problem with SmartThings don't expect much support. I am now going to disconnect all the SmartThings equipment and move to Apple.
