Remove a device from SmartThings Wifi

Removing connected devices on the SmartThings app

Did you just get a replacement SmartThings device and need to remove the old one? You can use the SmartThings app to delete a device you are no longer using, so you can start connecting to the new device immediately. Just like adding your SmartThings devices is a cinch, so is removing them. 

Remove a device

It’s time to give that device the boot. If you change your mind, you can always add it again later.

Navigate to and open the SmartThings app. Tap Menu (the three horizontal lines), and then tap All devices. Tap More options (the three vertical dots), tap Delete, and then tap the minus sign next to the device you’d like to delete. Tap Delete to confirm.

Note: Deleting a device will also remove it from any automations or scenes it belongs to.
