Compatible Devices in SmartThings
So you have the awesome SmartThings app on your phone, but where do you even begin? You should start connecting all your compatible devices and appliances like your TV, refrigerator, sensors, and even light bulbs. The list is endless. Once you’re connected, you can monitor, control, and automate devices around your house using the SmartThings app.
You can also check directly in the app itself. Navigate to and open SmartThings, and then navigate to the Location where you would like to add the device.
Touch Add (the plus sign) and then touch Add device. Touch the Search icon in the upper right-hand corner, and then search for the product's name. You can even search by the model number to be extra sure that it's compatible.
Most smart appliances have a special mode called Access Point (AP). This mode is like a pairing mode, where connections are made between two wireless devices.
First, make sure the device is compatible with SmartThings. Then, if you are unsure how to enable AP on your device, follow the instructions in the product's user manual; the steps may vary between devices. Once the device is in AP mode, the SmartThings app should automatically discover the device. However, if your device does not appear, you can add your device manually.
