Use Bluetooth devices

Bluetooth devices are a little different from other devices registered in SmartThings. You can find them in the Device panel.

On your Galaxy phone

Just swipe down from the top of the screen using two fingers to open the Quick settings panel, and then tap Devices. Tap your desired Bluetooth device to see its available settings or reconnect it if it's not currently paired. This panel is only available on phones running Android 10 or later.

If a device is not currently paired, make sure Bluetooth is enabled and then tap the desired device to connect to it. You can also tap the info icon to the right of the device for additional settings.
