Finding the Version of Your SmartThings Hub

SmartThings Hub (Hub v1)

  

The SmartThings Hub (Hub v1) is the first-generation Hub. This Hub is no longer manufactured or sold in the official SmartThings Shop, but it may still be found through other vendors.

Samsung SmartThings Hub (Hub v2)

The Samsung SmartThings Hub (Hub v2) is the newest version of SmartThings' core hardware, released September, 2015. The Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit also includes Hub v2.

Hub v2 features additional capabilities not present in Hub v1, including:

  • Local processing capabilities

       

    Some functionalities can now run locally with Hub v2. Certain automations driven by ZigBee or Z-Wave devices will no longer have to make a round trip from the device, to the Hub, up to the cloud, and back.

       

  • Battery back up

       

    Hub v2 comes with 4 AA batteries. This battery backup allows certain automations to continue, even without power, for up to 10 hours.

       

  • Video capabilities

       

    With Hub v2, you can view live video feeds, monitor your home, and automate video clip recording. Clips are processed through the Hub and stored in the cloud. Clip recording will be a premium paid feature of Smart Home Monitor, but all users can currently enjoy it for free. Go here to read the video FAQ .

       

  • USB ports

       

    To set the groundwork for future expansion, Hub v2 includes two USB ports.

       

  • Bluetooth

       

    Hub v2 is also future-ready to support Bluetooth, but the Bluetooth radio is not currently activated.
