Use Bluetooth Devices

Bluetooth devices are a little different from other devices registered in SmartThings. They won't appear in Rooms or in the Devices menu. Instead, they will display under Nearby devices or the SmartThings Panel when the app is open.

Nearby Devices

Navigate to and open SmartThings. Touch Menu (the three lines), and then touch Nearby devices. Next, select your desired Bluetooth device and use its available features. Some nearby devices may not work if they are turned off or not paired with the phone. 

SmartThings Panel

With the SmartThings app open, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the SmartThings panel. Then, touch your desired Bluetooth device to see its available settings.

Note: Depending on the connected Bluetooth device, the available features may vary.
