Smart home automation is fun, but it's not perfect. If you use a Google or Amazon device for voice control and some smart home automation, it's probably not compatible with certain wireless protocols. For example, if you use other Samsung products like the Home Monitoring Kit or smart bulbs from companies like Sengled, you need a special hub to link those devices to if you want to add them to your Amazon Alexa.
That's where the SmartThings hub comes in because it can handle wireless protocols like Zigbee, Z-Wave, and more. It works with more than 40 different brands, including light switches, speakers, cameras, sensors, and more. You can teach the hub routines like "Good Morning" or "Goodbye" and it will automatically turn things on or off. You can also get 24/7 monitoring so you'll get app alerts anytime there is unexpected activity.
The hub works with previous versions of other SmartThings devices. And you can download the Samsung Connect app to help you with setup.
