Setting up an Automation in Samsung SmartThings with certain time and device condition

Last Update Date : Jun 26. 2018

What is Automations?

With Automations, you can build custom automations to automatically trigger multiple actions, including notification alerts. You can set up Automations to run at certain times on certain days of the week or to trigger when another device reports a certain condition (such as detecting motion).

Please note: After an Automation is set up, use the toggle switch to deactivate or pause an Automation until you turn it on again

Selecting time and device condition for an Automation

If both a time and a device condition are selected for an Automation, both conditions must be true. So the set device condition must be true at the selected time for the Automation to run. 

For example, if the device condition is motion detected, the motion sensor must be reporting motion detected at the selected time or the Automation will not run. If the device condition is an open door sensor, the open/closed sensor must be reporting open at the selected time or the Automation will not run. 

To select a certain time and device condition for an Automation, follow these steps:

1 From the dashboard, tap the Automations icon in the bottom right corner
Tap the Automation Icon
2 Tap Add
Tap Add Automation
3 Select Conditions
Select Conditions
4 Tap Based on the time of day to set a specific / period of time to activate the Automation
Tap Based on the time of day
5 Tap Based on a device status to select the device to activate the Automation
Tap Based on a device status
6 Select Condition
Select Condition
7 Select the state to use (eg: No motion vs Motion detected)
Select the state of use
8 Tap Done
Tap Done
9 Tap Save
Tap Save
10 Tap What do you want this automation to do?
11 Select a device or Scene to be triggered and the action (e.g., On vs Off)
