How to add a SmartThings Hub in the Samsung Connect app

Adding a SmartThings Hub to your Samsung Connect app will allow you to connect to SmartThings products and the many third-party devices that work with SmartThings.

  5. Agree to the SmartThings Privacy Policy and tap Next
  6. Follow the in-app instructions to connect your Hub, which are reproduced here:
    1. Connect your Hub using the included power and network cables.
