Invite Members to SmartThings

Invite Members to SmartThings

The more, the merrier. To let your family or friends use your smart devices, you can invite them to be members of your SmartThings account. Just send out an invitation for a specific Location in your SmartThings account, and if they accept, they'll become official members. Now they can control or manage any of the connected devices in that Location.

Invite via Samsung Account

You can invite members to join certain Locations in your account. Soon, you'll all be able to use the same smart devices.

To invite a member, first navigate to the Location you would like the member to join (i.e. Living Room). Touch Add (the plus sign), and then touch Add member. Select Samsung account, and then enter the email used for their Samsung account. Next, touch Invite. Once the user receives the invitation, they can accept it, and then they'll be good to go.

Invite via QR Codes

You can also invite members using a QR code. How easy is that?

To invite a member, first navigate to the Location you would like the member to join (i.e. Living Room). Touch Add (the plus sign), and then touch the Add member. Then, touch QR code and a barcode will appear. The invitee can then scan the QR code on their phone. They will need to navigate to SmartThings, and then touch Menu. Next, they will need to touch Members, touch More Options, and then touch Accept QR code invitation. From there, they can follow the on-screen instructions and scan the code to become a member.

Accept the Invitation

It's not a party unless everyone is invited. To receive an invitation, the other user must have the SmartThings app installed on their phone and be signed into their Samsung account. They'll get the invitation as a notification on their phone. All they have to do is touch the notification, and then touch Accept. Once this is complete, they can control the devices added in that specific Location.

They can also open SmartThings, and then touch Menu (the 3 lines). A notice will appear above their username, informing them of the invitation. They can touch the notice, and then touch Accept to be added as a member.

View or Remove Members

If someone doesn't use SmartThings anymore, the owner of the Location can remove their membership. You can also view members in a Location in case you lose track of who has been added.

To view or remove a member, navigate to the Location with your desired member. Touch Menu (the 3 lines), and then touch Members. Here you can view the Location's Owner and its current members.

To remove a member, touch More Options, and then touch Edit. Choose the members you want to delete, and then touch Remove. Touch REMOVE to confirm. The member will now be removed from that Location and won't be able to control any of its devices.

Note: Only the owner of the Location can remove members.
