Receive notifications when your loved ones arrive home

The SmartThings Home From School Package consists of two wireless sensors, and a network-connected hub. It gives you peace of mind by letting you know that your child got home from school safely. Simply attach the Arrival Sensor to their backpack, and you'll get an alert on your phone when they get home. Use the Multipurpose Sensor to know if a door, window, or off-limit cabinet has been opened. 

Stay in the know

Both the Arrival Sensor and the Multipurpose Sensor talk to the SmartThings Hub wirelessly. In turn, the hub sends out notifications and alerts to a free app on your phone. There are lots of cool ways you can use this system. Pick up an extra Arrival Sensor and 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. 

Keep a watchful eye on your home

The Multipurpose Sensor gives you real-time feedback on the status of your smart home. It monitors whether doors or windows are open or shut. It also keeps track of temperature and detects vibration.

It's made up of two parts: a powerful magnet that attaches to the door or window, and the main body of the sensor that remains stationary on the frame. When the magnetic field is broken, you are immediately alerted by a notification on your phone. You can set custom alerts for each room in which you have a sensor installed. 

SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor

Use the Multipurpose Sensor to get alerts if your child opens an unsafe cabinet.

Expand your SmartThings system

There are a range of compatible SmartThings accessories you can use with your system. Have a motion sensor detect when you wake up so that your lights automatically turn on. Or use a water leak sensor to receive an alert if there's water in your basement. Control everything from the free SmartThings Mobile app (Apple®/Android™/Windows®) on your phone or tablet.

SmartThings Monitoring System: The SmartThings Home Monitoring system contains several sensors and this central monitoring hub to help you make sure your home is safe. In addition to the included Multipurpose Sensor and Arrival Sensor in this package, other available SmartThings sensors include: a Motion Sensor, Water Leak Sensor, and a Smart Outlet. Numerous devices (locks, thermostats, wireless music systems, cameras, lightbulbs, etc.) from Samsung and other manufacturers can be controlled through the SmartThings system. The SmartThings monitoring system is controlled via Wi-Fi and the SmartThings Mobile app for your smartphone or tablet. No contracts or monthly fees are required to monitor your home with the SmartThings system.

SmartThings Mobile App: The SmartThings Mobile 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 the Apple App Store for iOS devices running version 7.0 or later, from Google Play for Android devices (version varies with device), and from the Microsoft Store for Windows mobile devices.

SmartThings Hub: The Samsung SmartThings Hub (v2) pulls all of the elements of your SmartThings monitoring system together: all of the connected sensors, your smartphone or tablet, the SmartThings Mobile 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 Ethernet cable, the Hub has ZigBee (2.4 GHz), Z-Wave (900 MHz), and Bluetooth radio compatibility to support other devices. The Hub comes with 4 "AA" batteries that serve as backup power for approximately 10 hours, in case of a power outage. Dimensions: 4.237" x 4.894" x 1.375", Weight 7.68 ounces.

Arrival Sensor: The Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor lets you know who comes to and leaves from your home. The sensor is a small device that you can attach to a child's backpack, a pet's collar, or your car. You'll receive a notification on your smartphone when your child or pet leaves or arrives at your home. You can keep the Arrival Sensor in your car to automatically turn on lights when you get home. When kept on your keychain, you can trigger the sensor to emit a beeping noise to help you find your keys at home. The Arrival Sensor is powered by a CR-2032 battery (installed). The sensor's dimensions are 0.998" x 1.932" x 0.506" and it weighs 0.38 ounces.

Multipurpose Sensor: The Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor is much more than a simple open/closed sensor for windows or doors. Its built-in accelerometer can monitor vibration, so you can place one on your door to detect someone knocking, or on the washing machine to let you know when the laundry is done. An orientation sensor can also inform you the status of a garage door or other objects. It also has a temperature sensor to let you know if the room gets too hot or cold. The sensor and magnet can be mounted using the included screws or dual-sided adhesive. The Multipurpose Sensor has the following dimensions: Sensor: 1.348" x 1.946" x 0.709", Magnet: 0.537" x 1.499" x 0.541". The sensor weighs 0.64 ounces.
