What is SmartThings Find?

Last Update date : 2021-04-11

With the SmartThings Find service, you can easily locate your missing device even if it’s offline. That’s because SmartThings users can now opt in to securely use their Galaxy smartphone or tablet to help others locate their lost devices. Once a device has been offline for 30 minutes, it produces a BLE signal that can be received by other devices.

If you report your device as lost via SmartThings Find, any nearby Galaxy smartphone or tablet that has opted into helping find misplaced devices can alert the Samsung server about its location, which will in turn notify you. All SmartThings Find user data is encrypted and securely protected, ensuring that the device’s location is not revealed to anyone except its owner.

  • It is works with any Galaxy device with Android 8 and above.
  •  Simply open SmartThings on your phone or tablet, then under ‘Smart Apps’ look for and add SmartThings Find.
