Use SmartThings to control your Samsung dryer remotely

Even if you aren’t home when the dryer is running, it doesn’t mean you can’t check up on your laundry. Make sure your clothes come out perfect each time by using the SmartThings app on your phone or tablet. You can view notifications and alerts about your dryer’s progress, download new cycles to use, and keep an eye on things with Smart Control. You can find SmartThings compatible dryers on our website.
