Our take on the Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor

Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor Wireless Notifications

The SmartThings Arrival Sensor can emit a beeping sound to help locate your keys.

Receive notifications when your loved ones arrive home

Samsung's SmartThings Arrival Sensor lets you keep track of the people, pets, or possessions that are important to you. It's a small, wireless device that talks wirelessly to the SmartThings hub, the brain of your customizable SmartThings home automation system. You can add as many compatible devices and sensors as you want, and control them all using the SmartThings Mobile app (Apple®/Android™/Windows®).

Versatile uses for everyday life

Keep the sensor in your child's backpack so that you'll know when he or she gets home safely from school. Clip it to your dog's collar to know if he escaped the yard. Or attach it to your keychain, and it will beep so that you can find your keys when you're running late for work. The SmartThings app will monitor the sensor's replaceable battery level.

SmartThings plays nicely with others too

Samsung's SmartThings is designed around an open platform. Not only can you use SmartThings accessories, but there are a wide range of products from different companies that easily integrate into the system. You can add light bulbs, thermostats, cameras, door locks, wireless speakers and more. Control everything from a single app. Here are some products that we carry that work beautifully with your SmartThings system:

Sylvania Smart+ outlets no longer work with Hue hub. [ Stan  Dec 10, 2018 ]
I have the Samsung SmartThings. This arrival sensor is going to turn off security, open locks and turn on lights. When I get home. I'll have them for my wife and kids as well. My son keeps losing his key. [ Greg  Mar 12, 2017 ]
Good tool to have the smart system perform a specific task when you arrive. In this case, turn the lights on. [ Rafael  Sep 23, 2016 ]
