How do I control my smart home devices via Samsung SmartTag?

Last Update date : 2021-05-09

SmartTag doesn't only help you keep track of the important things in your life, but it also provides one-click convenience for your smart home. SmartTags can be used to control various smart home devices with just a single click, allowing you to turn on the lights in your home before you've stepped through the door.

SmartTag can be part of SmartThings automations based on you pressing or holding the button. Your SmartTag must be connected to your mobile device and your mobile device must have an internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile data) to start the automation.

Please note: the steps below may vary depending on your available smart home devices

1 Open the SmartThings app on your device
2 Select your SmartTag from the home screen or from the device list. To access the device list, tap the menu icon. The menu icon appears as three horizontal lines
3 Tap All devices
4 Tap on your SmartTag
5 When in the SmartTag card, tap Pressed

Please note: you can choose between Pressed and Held. This will depend on how you want to activate your automation and allows you to set two automations to your SmartTag

6 Tap the + button
7 Tap Control devices
8 Tap on the device you want to control
9 Tap Next
10 Tap on the operation you want to activate
11 Tap Save
12 Your automation will be displayed under your SmartTag

You can also do this from the Automations menu found in the SmartThings app
