How to use the SmartThings notification panel

Last modified : Mar 29. 2019

If you are running the SmartThings app on a Samsung Galaxy device running Android OS 7 or higher, you'll be able to control lights, sensors, scenes and more right from your Notification panel


The SmartThings panel is accessible from the SmartThings app Settings - where you can turn it off completely, or choose which devices you want to add and control at a swipe.


Use the SmartThings panel to quickly run Scenes, or toggle devices on and off without having to open up the SmartThings app.
