If it isn't detected, you can manually add it. Tap Back, then tap By brand, and then select the security device's brand, such as ADT. Select your type of device from the list, and then follow the on-screen prompts to connect it.

Navigate to and open SmartThings, and then tap Menu (the three horizontal lines). Navigate to the location where you'd like to add SmartThings Home Monitor, and then tap Add (the plus sign). Tap SmartApp, and then select SmartThings Home Monitor from the list. Then, tap your desired option (Security, Smoke, or Leaks). From there, read the on-screen instructions. You can add different sensors to detect intrusions, smoke, and other disturbances. You can also add lights or sirens to alert you of any danger.
If desired, you can also create automations (such as a siren going off) for the other available security options. When you're done, tap Done. SmartThings Home Monitor will appear in the location you added, where you can access it at any time.
To edit SmartThings Home Monitor’s settings, tap the shortcut in its designated location, and then tap the Settings icon.
