Let me start by saying this product is absolute garbage, stay away! If a company as mature and as global as Samsung can not provide a provisioning process (set up) that is straight forward and actually works for the average consumer then then should not play in this arena!
I purchased a SmartThings Hub V3 so that I could add a few simple switches so I could automate my exterior lighting. I cannot even get the Hub to connect to my network. I have a basic home network that I have working with other various products such as Ring with no issue. I am unable to get the SmartThings hub to even connect to my network. Oddly enough the app shows the hub is connected, however the hub lights are still flashing red and green indicating that the set up process failed. Its really should not be this difficult folks, stay away!
The sensors would sporadically disconnect and I could not reconnect them, despite following the website advice many, many times. I contacted customer support by email and followed their instructions to power down the hub. While this worked once, it did not work other times. I also removed the batteries from the sensors (no advice on the website regarding this), and this worked at least once. But how am I supposed to do these things when I am away from my house? (Even a "standard" reconnect requires you to push a button on the sensor.)
The hub would also sporadically disconnect, even though is was close to the router. While it would reconnect about a half hour later a device would be disconnected with the same reconnect problems above.
Customer support ("Ryan") was less than helpful. Their only advice was to repeat the obvious webpage instructions and to power down the hub. When I requested clarification they did not return my email.
"On paper" this is an attractive system -- if it worked. But it simply did not work for me. Customer support by email was worthless. I strongly recommend an alternative system.
(Note that this disconnecting is a common problem in these reviews. Also, as of my review almost 1/3 of the reviews are 1-star. In my experience with Amazon reviews, any product with this many 1-star reviews has SERIOUS problems.)

Out of the box, the Hub immediately found my Belkin Wemo lightswitches and motion sensor. What it didn't find was my Wemo Dimmer, Wemo Maker, or any of my TP-Link Kasa switches or plugs. However, I was able to add all of the additional pieces with help from the Smartthings Community.
My next step was to take the the rules from my existing automation server and write them into Smartthings. But again, I quickly ran into Smartthings' limitations. I'm not going to bother explaining it all, but in essence, things I can currently do with one rule would often require three different rules on Smartthings. Other functions can only be done if I install custom apps built by developers in the community. And some things just didn't seem possible without doing far more of my own programming than I'm interested in doing.
Also, for reasons I don't know, Samsung has two apps available: Smartthings Classic and Smartthings. You would think that all of the functionality in the Classic app would be available in the non-Classic version, but that's not the case. So, you have to have both apps on your phone. This means that every time the Hub goes offline (which seemed to be about once a day), I'd get two different notifications telling me as much, followed by two more notifications when it came back online.
I use a lot of Samsung products and think well of the company, but I feel like they're relying too much on the Smartthings community to develop features and functionality that should be available from the start.
Edit: With lots of help from the SmartThings forum, I was able to add all my devices, but it was a painstaking process involving thousands of lines of code (copy/pasted) and having to create developer accounts. Funny, I thought I had just paid Samsung to do this for me.
Mi cuenta Samsung era originalmente de México y funcionaba sin problema. Pude encontrar el hub desde la app SmartThings y desde SmartThings Classic.
Lo único malo es que no me aparecían todas las integraciones como Philips Hue.
Solamente fui a account.samsung.com y borré mi cuenta, la volví a crear seleccionando USA como mi país y listo, ya me aparece todo y funciona sin problemas desde México.
El producto llego antes de lo esperado. En cuanto llego empece el proceso de instalación. Voy a relatar la forma en la que a MI me funciono, el caso de otros puede ser diferente, no comparto esto como una opinion absoluta sino como una cuestión anecdotica esperando que a alguien mas le funcione.
Habían recomendado que bajara Smartthings classic para poder configurarlo. Hice esto, entre a la app, procedí a crear una Samsung account a la cual le puse que estaba en Estados Unidos. Ya entrando en la app me pedía que diera de alta un Hub antes de agregar mas cosas pero requería un código el cual solo viene con Hubs V1 y V2, la pagina de Samsung decía que para el V3 (que es el de 2018 y el que compre aquí) no se requería el código pero se necesitaba la aplicación mas nueva (Smartthings a secas). Ya tenia conectado el Hub y el led que trae parpadeaba verde/rojo, como lo del código no se podía descargue la aplicación mas nueva.
En la app nueva me logee con la Samsung account que habia creado con la Smartthings Classic, entre sin problema, le di a agregar dispositivo y lo detecto de forma inmediata, básicamente tal como lo indica la pagina de ayuda de Smartthings que viene en la app. Todo fue a través de Wifi, solo tuve que seguir las instrucciones que me iban saliendo en la app y listo!.
En este momento ya agregue varias de las cosas que ya tenia en mi casa, por ejemplo mi cerrojo inteligente lo abro y cierro desde la app de Smartthings.
Ojala les sirva a los que no han podido hacerlo funcionar!
I purchased this Hub specifically for remote access and entry code control of a Schlage Connect door lock. At the time (several months ago) it seemed like the best option, and I thought perhaps I would eventually use the Hub to integrate other smart features. The lock was installed and a few days ago I tackled setup of the Hub V3. Obviously I chose to load the latest, up to date version of the Smarthings App. First off, it wouldn't load on my phones (pixel2) browser so I had to install samsung internet browser app.
Once I got the hub connected to my wifi, trying to figure out how to add the lock was difficult. To pair lock, the app instructions called out a button to press behind the battery cover -but no such button exists. Found instructions online that require entering the locks programming code, then pressing 0 (on the lock keypad) - that worked. So now I was able to:
- monitor whether the lock was locked/unlocked
- see a history of what time it was locked/unlocked
- lock/unlock via the app.
But where was the remote code control - the ONLY reason I bought the product was for this feature???? a quick search showed that others have been asking the same question over a year ago. I had read about this but assumed that Samsung would have added this feature by now. They HAVE NOT - as of July 20, 2019 The most current version of the smarthings app does NOT allow remote setup of lock codes (for Schlage Connect doorlocks).
In a last ditch effort to get code control I downloaded the previous version of the smartthings App (which I read was able to do this). I finally got that running and fortunately it automatically recognized my user info and worked with the v3 Hub without any additional setup. After a lot of struggle I figured out how to unpair the lock from the first app. Then It easily paired with the old app - and FINALLY I was able to find a very primitive function that shows lock/unlock history AND a feature that allows setup and deletion of codes from the APP. and note that it is very basic. it does not allow any ability to set times for codes to be active or automatically deleted, but whatever.
Based on this example I question how much functionality is available on other smart home related hardware.
I easily spent over three Hours, over two days, to finally get this working. I was ready to return the hub, and the lock, but just wanted the problem solved - which it is. Now I'll see how much of a headache it is to keep online and trouble free?
Also, I did call the samsung customer service number and it was answered in less than 1 minute. the customer service person confirmed that the feature was not available for the schlage connect lock but she didn't advise me that I could install the old app to have access to it.
I can think of no logical reason that this function is not available - accept maybe security concerns/liability, or reliability issues in which case it shouldnt have been advertised to have this functionality (which it was when I bought it).
Overall VERY frustrating experience. If lock control is your main goal then maybe consider other options - Wink perhaps, but not sure if the experience would have been any better.
It would be GREAT if these app based hardware devices offered online simulations of the app interface so that we could see exactly how we can interface with the app BEFORE buying the products. that would allow customers to test different brands hardware before making the purchase. That would definitely have influenced my decision.
The hub was located 3 feet from myrouter. I have many, many WiFi devices in my home, ranging from phones, to tablets to streaming devices such as Amazon's Alexa and FireTV to Rokus, smart alarm clocks, and the list goes on. None of them have ever had a connectivity issue.
But, Mr Arrogance at Samsung's tech support, tells me that it is the fault of my equipment and not his. I tried to reason with him, I tried everything he told me to do (repeated resets, power down and reconnect repeatedly) to absolutely no avail.
So, what else could I do? I returned it to Amazon. I'm sure the device is good in general, but this particular one was bright yellow and tasted very sour!
I thought it would be a nice upgrade, but it turns out that v2 and v3 are not compatible.
I had to manually remove every single device, routine, smartapps, etc, one by one, from v2 before I was allow to add them back on to v3, so it basically ate up my entire weekend. Googled around for a more efficient solution but this is how it's written on their so-called 'migration' guide, and there's a lot of frustrated community because of their lack of true migration feature.
There are few z-wave switches v3 could not detect, so my kitchen lights aren't functioning... so frustrating!!!
So why did I add a hub? Well, Alexa cannot do any complex routines. Each routine can have only one trigger so you can't say "if my motion sensor senses motion and its Tuesday and the temperature outside is >20C." In my automation, I need to be able to trigger based on more than one condition. Pretty much all hubs can do this.
So I installed this hub. None of the wifi devices connect "natively" to the hub. They all connect through a service like "smart life" or "lutron." BTW, this is true of Alexa as well. The big difference is that Alexa connects directly to the service whereas I had to use IFTTT as an intermediate step to connect to this hub. The result is (for example)
Alexa -> smart life -> device
has changed to
smartthings hub -> IFTTT -> smart life -> device
You might think just adding one more step would not create much delay. Well, you would be very wrong! It would appear that the IFTTT service is VERY, VERY slow.
If you then want to say, turn on a light bulb using alexa voice, you add one more step.
alexa -> hub -> IFTTT -> smart life -> device
Now you are talking stunningly slow.
So I am leaving all my devices connected to both alexa and to this hub (yes, it is not a problem, both can be connected simultaneously except for zigbee devices). I use alexa for voice access and I use this hub for automation using sensors and other factors.
What a pain! Every new device needs to be connected to alexa and have a samsung virtual device and IFTTT app created. Stll its better than having my voice commands take 3-15 seconds to execute.
The hub picks up the devices easily...I have only put the water sensor and the multi-sensor onto the hub at this time - both Samsung Smartthings devices. They were all easy to connect, especially with the QR code on the unit.
The surprising thing is that this hub picked up my WeMo plugs that are on the same WiFi network without me entering anything in. It just came up on the Samsung app and asked me to match them to rooms.
In the end, I am able to use the Hub to control even these WeMo plugs and schedule things very easily. The hub really makes things easy.
But the problem with IFTTT was that if I configure a motion sensor to turn on some lights, it needs to send a signal to its servers, which then sends a signal to the IFTTT server, which will then send a signal back to the lights in my home. The turnaround time could be quick... but more often, it takes several minutes. This is the flaw of relying on online servers to enable/disable smart home products -- it's not immediate nor is it 100% reliable.
The SmartThings Hub receives and sends signals to your smart home products without sending signals to a server. You can mix different brands to work together. The SmartThings motion sensors can immediately turn on Hue lights. When grouped together, my Yeelights turn on alongside my Hue lights.
I've also noticed that some of the smart home products have consistently had issues communicating with other devices -- some run ono 2.8Ghz, 5ghz, or ethernet. After getting the SmartThings Hub, the issue was no longer a problem.
