Are you worried that your teenager might be on the internet or social media for too long? Don't worry, with the Connect Home hub and the SmartThings app, you can set time restrictions, so your kids or anyone else can only access the internet during certain times, like after they've done their homework.

Set time restrictions on your Connect Home

You can set a time restriction for a specific date for any device, as long as it's connected to the Connect Home hub.

On your phone, navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Then, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and tap All devices. Select your Connect Home from the list of devices. Then, tap the DEVICES button; the button may display something different, depending on how many devices you have connected. For example, it may display 2 DEVICES or 3 DEVICES. Select your desired device on the list. From here, you can see a list of devices that are currently or previously connected to your Connect Home.

Select the device you want to restrict from the list. Tap Restrict usage time and then tap Add restricted time. Select your desired days and then set your desired start and end time. When you're done, tap Add. Once you've set the restricted times, tap the switch to turn it on or off.

To delete a restricted time, tap the restricted time you want to delete, and then tap DELETE.
