Add and Manage Devices in SmartThings

With the ever-growing number of appliances in your home, you need a way to keep up with them all. What if we told you there’s an app to control all your smart appliances, right from your phone? With SmartThings, you can add compatible appliances and manage them on your phone in a snap. And don't worry, SmartThings supports many third-party smart devices.

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.  Learn More

Add Devices

When you are ready to take control of all your smart devices, just follow the steps below.

Navigate to SmartThings, and then touch Add device. If you have your device turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone, it will appear below AVAILABLE DEVICES. To add a device manually, touch ADD DEVICE MANUALLY and then select your device or appliance.

If needed, you can also remove a device.

Manage Devices

You've added a whole bunch of devices - now what? You can easily monitor and manage all your connected devices right from the app.

Navigate to SmartThings, and then touch the Devices tab. Here you can view all your registered devices and also monitor and control the status of each device. To operate your device, select the device and use the available settings to perform your desired operations.

Note: Availability of controls may vary depending on the device.

Notification Panel

If you are tired of constantly opening the app to check on things, you can view your devices from the Notification panel! Swipe down to open the Notification panel and then touch the different devices' icons to see their status.
