Add a Port to Your Connect Home with SmartThings

Whenever you're out the house, you can't help but worry. What if something happens while you're away? No worries, when you set up port forwarding on your Connect Home, you can view your smart home's security cameras from almost anywhere. And that's not all - if you add a port, you can also remotely access many other devices over the internet.

Add a Port

When you add a port to a device, it will send information directly to your Connect Home. Here's how to do it:

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 your desired device from the list of connected devices. Next, touch Add port, enter your port information, and then touch DONE.
