Using SmartThings is easy! There are really only three things you need to get started:
- A SmartThings Hub: the brain of your smart home, connects via Ethernet to your router
- An active internet connection for your SmartThings Hub
- The SmartThings mobile app: available for iOS and Android (Minimum smartphone requirements: Android 4.0 or greater; iOS 8.1 or greater. Minimum tablet requirements: Android 4.1 or greater; iPad iOS 9 or greater.)
Then, you can start adding smart devices to your home.
There are no monthly fees to use SmartThings! In the future, there will be optional premium services available for a low monthly fee, but the core SmartThings experience will remain free.
