Add and manage devices in SmartThings
With the ever-growing number of smart devices in your home, you need a way to keep up with them. What if we told you there’s an app to control all your smart devices, right from your Galaxy phone? That's right, the SmartThings app can add and manage all your smart devices in one place.
Note: If you are adding Z-Wave devices that have been connected previously, make sure they have been removed or excluded before adding them to the new hub.
Add devices to SmartThings
When you are ready to take control of all your smart devices, just use the guidelines below. But first, you should double check if your devices are compatible.
On your phone, navigate to and open SmartThings. Tap Add (the plus sign), and then tap Add device.
If the device uses Bluetooth, tap Scan and if your device appears, select its name. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to connect it.
If your device isn't detected, you can add it manually. To do this, tap the device's brand logo (SmartThings, ADT, and so on). If it's a Samsung product, just select the type of device, such as a Hub, TV, etc. From there, follow the on-screen instructions to connect the device to SmartThings.
Manage devices in SmartThings
So, you've added a whole bunch of devices - now what? You can easily monitor and manage all of them right from the app.
On your phone, navigate to and open SmartThings. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap Devices. Here you can view, monitor, and control all your registered devices. Select your desired device and use the available settings to perform your desired actions.
You can also view and control your registered devices on the Home Screen. If a device is on your Dashboard, just tap the device's name to use it or manage its settings.
Note: Availability of controls may vary depending on the device.
Remove devices from SmartThings
Maybe you just got a new TV and want to remove the old one from SmartThings. No problem, here's what to do:
On your phone, navigate to and open SmartThings. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap Devices. Next, tap More options (the three vertical dots) in the top right, and then tap Delete. Finally, tap the red Delete icon next to the device you want removed, and then tap Delete to confirm.
Use the Device panel
With the Device panel on your Galaxy phone, you can view and access your SmartThings devices and Scenes without navigating to the SmartThings app. It's a great shortcut if you want to save some time.
On your phone, swipe down from the top of the screen, and then tap Devices underneath the Quick settings panel. Your Scenes and SmartThings devices will be displayed.
To access the device's panel in SmartThings, tap the device's icon.
To activate a Scene, tap the Scene's icon.
To open the SmartThings app, tap the SmartThings icon in the upper right corner.
