Set Time Restrictions on Devices Connected to Connect Home

Set Time Restrictions on Devices Connected to Connect Home

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, touch Menu, and navigate to the Location where the Connect Home is saved. Select your Connect Home from the list of devices. Then, touch the button next to Devices on network; the button may say something different depending on how many devices you have connected. For example, it might say 2 DEVICES or 3 DEVICES.

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

Note: To delete a restricted time, touch the restricted time you want to delete, and then touch DELETE.
