Control your Samsung air purifier with SmartThings

A Note10 connecting to an air purifier via SmartThings

SmartThings is able to control everything from lightbulbs to thermostats. And now, it can even control the quality of your air. That’s right, you can connect your Samsung Cube Air Purifier to SmartThings and control it remotely, whether it's monitoring the device's status or turning it on. Talk about a breath of fresh air.

Add your air purifier to SmartThings

Even if you aren’t home, you can still control your air purifier’s basic functions. Just connect the purifier to the SmartThings app.

Open SmartThings, tap Add (the plus sign), and then tap Device. Tap Air purifier, and then tap Samsung. Tap Air purifier, and then tap Start. Choose a location and room where you’d like to register the device. From there, follow the on-screen instructions to connect the purifier.
