Set Up the SmartThings Wifi Hub for the First Time
Once you set up the SmartThings Wifi hub, you can get fast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage, plus total connectivity for all your smart devices. It has everything you need for your smart home, all in one hub. Connect and control compatible lights, cameras, and more SmartThings devices and enjoy corner-to-corner Wi-Fi coverage in every room.
Set Up SmartThings Wifi
Once you set up SmartThings Wifi, you’ll never deal with slow internet again – whether you’re upstairs, downstairs, or in the basement.
First, download the SmartThings app from the Play Store or App Store on your phone. Next, connect the SmartThings Wifi hub to your modem. Plug one end of the included Ethernet cable into the IN port on the hub. Then, plug the other end to the LAN port on the modem. Next, plug the AC/DC adapter into the DC port on the hub and plug it into a wall outlet or power strip.
Note: Use only Samsung-approved adapters.
SmartThings Wifi will turn on and the indicator light will flash green. Now, open the SmartThings app on your phone. The hub should be detected automatically. Just follow the on-screen instructions to finish setup.
If SmartThings Wifi isn't automatically detected, make sure you are within 15 feet of the hub, touch Add (the plus sign), and then touch Add device. Under Brand, touch SmartThings, and then touch Wi-Fi/Hub. Choose the type of Wifi hub, and then follow the on-screen instructions to finish setup.
Now you're ready to download, stream, and more at supersonic speed.
Reset SmartThings Wifi
Performing a factory reset will remove all settings and configurations on SmartThings Wifi, including connections between the hub and other devices.
Experiencing interruptions or hiccups in your Wi-Fi service? Resetting the hub is often the easiest solution. Just keep in mind performing a reset will remove all data from SmartThings Wifi.
To reset the SmartThings Wifi, use a small SIM card removal tool, pin, or tweezers to press and hold the Reset button on the hub. Hold it until the blue indicator light flashes. Once the green indicator light begins blinking, you can reconnect the hub.
Note: You can also factory reset through the SmartThings app.
