Locations in the SmartThings app

Your Location in the SmartThings app is the main launch pad for your connected Hubs, devices, Scenes, and Automations. You can create a Location for multiple homes and share access with your friends and family.

 

Create a new Location

You can create a Location and add compatible Samsung IoT devices without SmartThings Hub capability. (If you haven’t added a Location, adding your first device will automatically create a Location with the default name Home.) You can always add a SmartThings Hub (or compatible device with SmartThings Hub functionality) to the Location later in order to add devices that work with SmartThings.

To create a Location in the SmartThings app:

  1. From the Home screen, select Menu (Menu icon) and touch the dropdown arrow
  2. Touch Add new location
  3. Enter a name for your Location
  4. Touch Geolocation to set a real-world location to trigger automations when you arrive/leave
  5. Touch Wallpaper to change the background
  6. Select Rooms for your Location
  7. Touch Done

 

View another Location

You can view your default Location or switch to another Location.

  1. From the Home screen, select Menu (Menu icon) and touch the dropdown arrow
  2. Select another Location 

 

Edit your Location

There are many options accessible when editing your Location.

  1. From the Home screen, select More Options (More Options icon) and touch Manage (your Location's name).

From the editing screen, you can:

  • Rename or remove the Location
  • Change the Geolocation
  • Change the Mode
  • Change the Wallpaper
