If you want to automate your home, you need something that links all the pieces of the puzzle together. Enter Samsung's SmartThings Hub. Connect it to your router, and you'll be able to monitor, control, and automate a huge range of connected devices using the free SmartThings mobile app.
Some things you do every day, so it can be helpful to create routines within the app. For example, your “Good Morning” routine could include turning on the lights, starting the coffee maker, and switching on NPR. You can even trigger that whole scenario just by walking down the stairs or down the hall, using a SmartThings motion sensor (sold separately).
You can also control your SmartThings system hands-free if you've got a voice assistant. The Hub works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home products. That means you can turn your lights on or off, lock the door, turn down your thermostat, and so much more just by asking.

Works like it should. Easy setup and easy to use. Love it!
Seems to work great. Accessory and animation wasn't really straightforward.
The app itself is great and besides a few wishes, everything works well. The hub itself took hours to set up. Everytime we would try to set the Hub up via WiFi, it would freeze up while installing the update. The only way out of this was to do a full reset each time!! Samsung's website isn't very helpful on matters either. After much searching online we finally figured out that it is a bug (that other people encountered as well) and that the hub needed to be set up via ethernet. This defeats the whole purpose of the v3 hub!! Once it was set up via Ethernet, everything worked great. I really hope Samsung gets it together and fixes this issue, we were very disappointed that one of the main selling points of the hub did not function.
Pros: -Seamless integration of smart home devices -Easily integrates with Alexa, iOS, and Android
Cons: -Set up was buggy and atrociously hard.
A nightmare. I have been a user for years. Hours to transfer from old hub. Now things are turning off and on whenever the heck they want. Cant take it anymore. We are not there yet!!! Yea for plain switches.
Cons: EverythingCrutchfield response on 12/12/2018 Jorge contacted our Customer Support team and set up a return. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.
works well, great community of users, but really no "easy start" instructions or support. If you are expecting plug and play, don't go this route.
Setup was super easy! The built in exclusion mode was very helpful in disconnecting my devices from the previous z-wave hub. Highly recommended if your in the market for a new z-wave hub for your home automation.
Overview: The Samsung SmartThings Hub (IM6001-V3P01) pulls all of the elements of your SmartThings monitoring system together: all of the connected sensors, your smartphone or tablet, the SmartThings app, and the SmartThings cloud. The Hub wirelessly connects all of the sensors around your home so they can send information to your smartphone, or to each other. The Hub needs to be connected to power and your network (AC adapter and Ethernet cable included). In addition to the wired Ethernet connection, the Hub has ZigBee (2.4 GHz), Z-Wave (900 MHz), Cloud-to-Cloud, LAN, and ZigBee3 protocol for connecting and communicating with third party devices. Dimensions: 5"W x 5"D x 1-1/8H", Weight 5.8 ounces.
SmartThings Monitoring System: The SmartThings Home Monitoring system consists of various sensors and this central monitoring hub to help you make sure your home is safe. Available SmartThings sensors include:
Third Party Devices: Numerous devices from other manufacturers are compatible with the SmartThings Hub:
Routines: The SmartThings app lets you configure several series of actions called Routines to occur at specific times of the day, or in specific situations. These actions are personalized, and can be performed automatically or on command. There are four default Routines: "I'm Back!", "Good Night,", "Goodbye!", and "Good Morning!" If you have a compatible Samsung TV, you can also set up a "Movie Time" routine. When you add a routine, you can configure it specifically for your home: turn lights/switches on or off, set dimmers to a certain level, lock or unlock doors, open/close the garage door, etc. You can tap the specific icon in the app to manually activate the Routine. You can also automatically activate the Routine when someone arrives or leaves, or at specific times, at sunrise/sunset, when something opens or closes, or when motion starts happening or stops. Routines can be edited or deleted whenever you choose.
SmartThings App: The SmartThings app for your smartphone or tablet lets you easily control, monitor, and secure your home from virtually anywhere in the world. The app is available from Apple iTunes for iOS devices running version 11.0 or later, and from Google Play for Android devices (6.0 or later).
