What is Samsung SmartThings?

Last Update date : Sep 30. 2020

Samsung SmartThings will turn your home into a Smart Home. It allows you to wirelessly connect with a whole range of smart devices and lets everything work together. You can add Samsung Home appliances, TVs, and other Internet of Things (IoT) products. The SmartThings app is designed to let you view and configure your added devices at a glance.


Add a SmartThings Wi-Fi hub to your Wi-Fi network to control smart outlets, smart lights, use Voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Use sensors to detect water leaks, or see whether doors and windows are opened or closed. You can add compatible door locks, speakers, switches and more. The SmartThings app works on both Android and Apple operating systems, and devices you can control are being added all the time. 

The SmartThings app comes preinstalled on lots of Samsung Galaxy devices - you can download it from the Google Play Store, Galaxy Apps Store or the Apple App store.

SmartThings Australian Compatible Devices:

The list of compatible devices is always growing, and you can always check out the catalogue of devices right from the SmartThings app. Please note that you'll need a SmartThings Wi-Fi hub to control most sensors, door locks and cameras in the SmartThings app. The SmartThings Wi-Fi hub is available as a starter pack through RACV.
