Samsung Connect app rebranded to ‘SmartThings’

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

We've known for a while that Samsung is consolidating its 40+ smart home apps into the SmartThings app, and the company confirmed yesterday that the revamped app is coming next month. Now it appears the Samsung Connect application, which is one of many being folded into SmartThings, has itself been rebranded to SmartThings. That's not confusing at all.

Samsung SmartThings app overhaul coming in March

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Samsung's smart home ecosystem has become rather confusing over the years. Samsung ConnectSamsung Smart Home, and SmartThings all have overlapping functionality - resulting in a horrible user experience and a confusing mess for everyone.

According to a press release from today, Samsung is planning to release the overhauled SmartThings app in March.

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Samsung unveiled its first Family Hub fridge back in 2016, and the concept of a 'smart refrigerator' hasn't become any less ridiculous since then.

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Bixby is Samsung's home-grown virtual assistant that debuted on the Galaxy S8. It's still far behind Google Assistant in terms of functionality and language support, but Samsung has mostly continued to stick with it (they finally allowed users to disable the button a few months ago).

[Update: Details on lock codes] SmartThings app adds Scenes, fingerprint authentication, visitor lock codes, and more

Monday, November 20th, 2017

One of the most requested features in the SmartThings app has been scene support. I'm new to the system, so I'm sure there were some enterprising solutions to the lack of scenes, but there wasn't any native and easy way to do it.

One of the most requested features in the SmartThings app has been scene support. I'm new to the system, so I'm sure there were some enterprising solutions to the lack of scenes, but there wasn't any native and easy way to do it. That changes with the latest update to version 2.10 of the SmartThings app.

Scenes reside inside the My Home tab, next to Things and Rooms, and allow you to change multiple lights, switches, and devices to different presets to suit a certain mood.

[Deal Alert] Samsung SmartThings Hub, Kit, and accessories are up to 50% off

Friday, November 10th, 2017

A few months ago, I caved in and graduated from the Wink Hub v2 to a SmartThings Hub v2 when the latter's price went down to $49.99. I've been a happy camper since. I managed to move my GoControl door/window sensors and motion detector to SmartThings, I connected my LiFX bulbs, I've hooked it up to IFTTT and Google Home, and I'm looking forward to tinkering with a few user-generated SmartApps to connect my Netatmo cam and Nuki smart lock.

SmartThings Link hands-on: Turning your SHIELD TV into a smart home hub

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Connected home items are becoming more and more common, from light bulbs to doorbells and so on. Since the beginning of it all, I've really wanted to join in the smart home thing, mostly because I am lazy and want to control my house with my voice. Cost to entry has been rather prohibitive and I've always rented places, so I figured most of my options would be limited.

To help alleviate the first problem, cost, Nvidia and Samsung teamed up to bring us the SmartThings Link for the Shield TV.
