Frequently asked questions

Is SmartThings being discontinued or going away?

No, but there are some changes. Select SmartThings hardware, including Hub v3, will be rebranded from Samsung to Aeotec - you can see the full SmartThings product range here. The SmartThings platform, including the app, will continue to be developed by the team at Samsung's SmartThings and branded SmartThings.

Does the SmartThings hub or app require a subscription? Is it free?

No, SmartThings doesn't charge users a monthly fee for their software, app or to use the Aeotec Smart Home Hub.

However, SmartThings' Smart Home Hub can connect to a huge range of compatible devices and it is possible that you purchase a 3rd party device or service that requires a monthly subscription fee to use. For example, home security and SmartThings services can be purchased which may incur a monitoring charge.

Please check with the manufacturer of any accessory or product that you connect to SmartThings to understand if 3rd party products will charge you a monthly fee for their use.

What is Smart Home Hub's wireless range?

Wireless performance depends more on the products you connect to SmartThings than the hub itself. The hub can control Z-Wave devices that are up to 30m / 98ft away or Zigbee devices at 39 m / 130 ft away. Ultimately, it will depend on the construction of the home the hub resides in.

What can I connect to a SmartThings hub?

SmartThings and Aeotec Smart Home Hub are compatible with over 5,000 different devices from hundreds of different brands. That includes brands such as Aeotec, Bosch, Bose, GE, Google, Honeywell, IKEA, Lutron, Philips Hue, Ring, Samsung, Sonos, and Yale.

A list of devices compatible with SmartThings software is available and tracks nearly 1,000 products from over 100 different brands. An additional list of SmartThings edge drivers, which can improve the performance of products within the SmartThings system, is available at that link.

Which version of Z-Wave does Aeotec Smart Home Hub use?

Built atop of Z-Wave Plus, Aeotec Smart Home Hub utilizes Z-Wave 500 series. It's compatible with 700 series products, but doesn't have the advantages of either 700 or 800 series itself. Learn more at this list of the hub's specifications.

Which versions of Z-Wave is SmartThings compatible with?

SmartThings and Aeotec Smart Home Hub are compatible with all generations of Z-Wave, including the two versions Z-Wave Plus V2, 700 series and 800 series.

Does Aeotec Smart Home Hub support Wi-Fi devices?

Yes, including the Aeotec indoor camera for SmartThings. Other wi-fi devices work as well but indirectly. Smart Home Hub offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, amongst other wireless technologies. However, in most cases Wi-Fi is used for Internet connectivity and not to connect directly to smart Wi-Fi devices. Instead, the SmartThings app will commonly route connections to compatible Wi-Fi devices through the device maker's cloud connexion.

Will ADT sensors work with SmartThings & Smart Home Hub?

Only the ADT Water Leak Detector will. All other ADT sensors will not work; they use proprietary, wireless technology and not an open-standard that Smart Home Hub is compatible with. Smart Home Hub offers Wi-Fi, Zigbee, and Z-Wave compatibility and the ADT Water Sensor is compatible as it utilizes Zigbee.

Do they still make the SmartThings hub?

Samsung don't, but Aeotec do. Since December 2020, the Samsung SmartThings Hub v3 has become the Aeotec Smart Home Hub. It still runs the SmartThings software and SmartThings app. It is still compatible with all the devices and automations you've come to expect. The only change is that the hardware is now branded Aeotec.

Can I migrate from SmartThings v1, v2 or v3 to Smart Home Hub?

Migrating from SmartThings hub v1 requires factory resetting all of your devices and connect/pair them again to your Aeotec Smart Home Hub. If you're migrating from v2 or v3, you can email to get assistance in automated migration. A step-by-step guide to migrating from older SmartThings hubs is also available.

SmartThings Station vs Aeotec Hub: how do they compare?

With a focus on the Matter automation standard, and without Z-Wave built in, Samsung's SmartThings Station (sometimes called Hub v4) falls short of the average home's automation system needs. In comparison to Aeotec Smart Home Hub / SmartThings Hub v3, SmartThings Station is compatible with 37% fewer locally processed devices. It also isn't able to offer local processing in homes running multiple Matter hubs or bridges. A full comparison of SmartThings Station vs Aeotec Smart Home Hub is available at that link.

Is SmartThings a Samsung app?

Yes, it is developed and published by Samsung Electronics and it is free to download. SmartThings' app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Is SmartThings compatible with Alexa or Google Home?

Yes, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant can be used to control SmartThings and Aeotec Smart Home Hub. Once you've connected the systems to each other, you'll be be able to use voice commands to control devices connected to SmartThings. Do note that there are some limitations; for instance, for security reasons, Amazon Alexa will only support Routines with lighting, switch, and thermostat devices.

Can I upgrade from SmartThings v2 to Aeotec Smart Home Hub?

Yes, you can upgrade - but it is not easy. Aeotec provides no seamless or easy upgrade between hubs. If you wish to upgrade to a newer hub you will have to disconnect your Z-Wave and Zigbee devics from your old hub first. You will then have to connect / pair them with the new hub. If you're purchasing a new hub, you may wish to check our guide to the best hubs currently available.

Does Aeotec Smart Home Hub support Z-Wave Long Range?

As it uses 500 series Z-Wave, Aeotec Smart Home Hub cannot support and is not compatible with Z-Wave Long Range. If you wish to use Long Range Z-Wave technology, we recommend using Atrim Stick with Home Assistant instead.

When will Aeotec Smart Home Hub v4 release?

A v4 version of Aeotec Smart Home Hub would offer 800 series Z-Wave, Long Range functionality in the USA, Zigbee 3.0, and Matter. However, as of 2024 there are no plans to replace Aeotec Smart Home Hub v3 or SmartThings with a v4 version.
