Here’s what each LED color means:

  • No light: No power.

  • Green for several seconds: Hub is powered on.

  • Green blinking: This could mean the system is booting, processing, upgrading, or completing its setup.

  • Red blinking: An error has occurred. This could also mean the hub is overheating.

  • Solid green: Internet is available or Wi-Fi is turned on.

  • Solid red: Internet is unavailable.

  • Solid magenta: Download mode (Manual/OTA Update).

  • Alternating between green and red: The hub is searching for a sensor.

  • No light to blinking green: The hub has been factory reset.

The LED Status Indicator is meant to help you decipher what’s going on with your hub, but if you don’t want to see it anymore, you can turn it off.

Navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Then, tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and tap All devices. Tap the name of your desired SmartThings Wifi hub, and then tap Network status. Tap the hub you want to control, and then tap the switch next LED indicator to turn it off.
