SmartThings Support

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in the SmartThings app

On Android devices, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be automatically enabled when opening the SmartThings app. Additionally, when closing the SmartThings app, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will be automatically returned to the state they were in before opening the app. For example, if you have Bluetooth disabled and Wi-Fi enabled when opening SmartThings, Bluetooth will automatically be enabled. When you close the app, Bluetooth will return to being disabled, while Wi-Fi will remain enabled as it was before.


This automatic feature can be toggled on and off for Android devices. Note: This feature is not available on iOS.


To view the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth auto-on setting:

  1. From the Dashboard, tap the three dots in the top right
  2. Tap Settings
  3. See the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth auto on toggle switch
