Use the SmartThings Home screen

With the Home screen in SmartThings, monitoring and managing your devices is easier than ever. Once you open the SmartThings app, you will have everything you need right at your fingertips. You can view connected devices, scenes, shortcuts, and other options.

Note: The provided information refers to devices sold in Canada. The available screens and settings may differ for devices sold in other countries. You can visit the SmartThings website to check device compatibility and gather more information.

The SmartThings Home screen is basically your starting point for everything in the SmartThings app.

Use the Home screen

To make things easier, the Home screen is location specific. That means it only displays the devices in the location you selected, like the Living Room. From the Home Screen, you can also add and control devices in the selected location.

Maybe you use the devices in your bedroom the most. No worries, you can set the Bedroom as your location on the Dashboard and get instant access to it.

On your phone, navigate to and open SmartThings. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap the drop-down arrow next to Home.

Choose a location for the Home screen

Choose your desired Location; now the devices in that Location will appear on the Home screen. Just tap the device's name to use it or manage its settings.

If you have multiple rooms in a location, your Home screen can get a little cluttered. You can reorder the rooms to make everything organized again.

On your Home screen, tap the More options icon (the three vertical dots) and then tap Edit.

Reorder the Home screen

Drag and drop your Rooms until they are in your preferred order. When you are done, tap Save.
