Update the SmartThings Wifi Hub

Keeping your SmartThings Wifi hub and all of its connected devices updated is the key to making sure everything runs smoothly. Fortunately, you don’t have to look too hard for any available firmware updates. All of your updates (including the SmartThings Wifi hub itself) will be right in the SmartThings app, and you can set the app to automatically download new firmware updates.
