Set up your Samsung air purifier

Enjoy a home full of fresh, clean air when you use your new Cube Air Purifier. This device will sanitize the air in your home by eliminating pollutants, contaminants, and other debris. It's especially useful if you are sensitive to dust or certain odors. You can breathe easily no matter where you decide to place the Cube.

Unbox your air purifier

Your air purifier contains special filters shipped with packing material that must be unpacked from the main body of the device before using it for the first time. Remove all packing materials from the filters to ensure each one works properly and to prevent damage to the device.

Start by removing the back panel, and then remove the pre-filter, deodorization filter, and dust collecting filter. To remove the filters, place your fingers in the grooves at the top of the rear panel and slide them out individually. Unwrap the filters and discard the vinyl and foam packaging before putting them back in.

The same process (except for the steps involving the packing material) will be used to remove filters for replacement or cleaning.

Assemble your air purifier

Once you’ve taken out the filters and packaging, it’s time to reinsert the filters into your air purifier. These steps are also the same when you replace the filters with new ones. The filters work together to cleanse the air and must be placed in the correct order.

Insert each filter into the rear panel one by one. Use the grooves on the interior of the device to lock each filter into place. Align the dust collecting filter, the deodorization filter, and then the pre-filter.

Close the rear panel once the filters have been inserted by sliding the tabs on the bottom of the device until they lock securely.

Air Purifier being assembled

The first time you set up the filters, the filter reminder will keep track of how often you use the air purifier and flash red when it recommends replacing the filters. After you've put in the new ones, press and hold the Filter button for 3 seconds to reset the reminder.

The deodorization and dust collecting filters will last between 6 months to 1 year if the air purifier is used on a daily basis. However, the filters should be replaced if they begin to carry odors, regardless of the time elapsed. Do not reuse filters after the filter reminder goes off. Remove the old filters and replace them.

Note: If it's your first time putting the filters in, the only other step to complete assembly is to connect the power adapter, making sure it clicks into place in the bottom port of the device.

Your air purifier’s location and settings

To get the most out of the air purifier, use the different settings based on your environment. If you plan on keeping the device in your bedroom, for instance, choose Sleep mode to purify the air while you sleep.

The purifier’s fan mode can be altered to suit your preferences. Press the Fan button to select from Low, Medium, High, and Auto. Pressing the button again will let you cycle through each speed. Create a gentle wind for cleansing the air with Wind-free mode, and disable all buttons with Lock mode if your air purifier is within reach of children.

Air Purifier in bedroom

When choosing a location for your device, consider the fabrics in the surrounding area, including furniture and clothing. Pet dander, electric pressure cookers in kitchens, opened windows, and air fresheners can impact the amount of debris and odors that are caught in the device’s filters. Adjust the device’s fan settings based on these factors to get the best air quality.

Install a second air purifier

If you'd like to refresh a large room, or just a room that tends to have heavy odors, two air purifiers can be connected by placing one on top of the other. Stack the devices carefully so that they will function properly.

When using two air purifiers at once, the top device will operate both units simultaneously. Pick which device you'd like to keep in the bottom position. Push down on and rotate the module connector in the top panel. Next, disconnect the power adapter from the device you're stacking on top, and then connect it to the bottom device. Combine the devices by aligning the module connectors.

To separate them, use the bottom handles of the top device to lift it up. Rotate the modules on both devices so that they are set in the original positions.

Note: You should not combine more than two air purifiers at once, or place the connected devices on an elevated or uneven surface.

Connect to SmartThings

Control your air purifier’s functions by using the SmartThings app. Set the fan speed, check the filter status, or monitor the air's cleanliness directly from your phone or tablet.

Plug in the air purifier’s power adapter, and press the Power button before syncing to the app. Navigate to and open SmartThings, and then tap Add Now once the device has been found. If you do not see a notification within the app, you can manually add the device by tapping Add (the plus icon), and then tapping Add device. Search for your device if it does not appear. From there, follow the on-screen instructions to finish connecting the device to SmartThings.
