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 Android or iOS (Minimum smartphone requirements: Android 5.0 or greater; iOS 10.0 or greater. Minimum tablet requirements: Android 4.1 or greater; iPad iOS 10.0 or greater.)
- Note: Your mobile device must have at least 2GB of RAM.
Then, you can start adding smart devices to your home.
There are no monthly fees to use SmartThings! The core SmartThings experience will always remain free.
