Making the Switch to a SmartThings Smart Home

[Attachment]

With SmartThings, smart home devices work together seamlessly to deliver a connected living experience designed to make life simpler at home. SmartThings works with hundreds of third-party devices, such as voice assistants, door locks, lightbulbs, cameras and thermostats, making it the ideal choice for people looking to personalize their smart home. SmartThings gives plenty of choices to people who have already invested in smart home products from Samsung and other popular brands like Ring, Iris by Lowe's, Arlo, Ecobee, Philips Hue, Schlage and many more.

For consumers who've invested in Iris by Lowe's sensors, SmartThings already works with the majority of these sensors and will support the full line in time for Iris users to easily transition to SmartThings when the Iris by Lowe's service ends on March 31. All that's needed to connect is a SmartThings Hub ($69.99) with a compatible Android or iOS device*, and Samsung's support team is available to assist with the migration process.

These small devices are useful to sense motion and detect opening or closing doors and windows. Sensors can be managed with the SmartThings app to easily create personalized automations. With the SmartThings app, users can do things like automatically turn on lights when entering a home at night, receive alerts when a door is opened while away, or turn off an air conditioning when windows are opened.

What to Expect from SmartThings

With no monthly fees or subscriptions, SmartThings gives consumers the flexibility to start small and grow their smart home at their own pace.

'Our SmartThings smart home ecosystem is ideal because it allows for the most flexibility of any platform currently available today,' said David Phelps, Director of Product Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. 'We're working to ensure sure all Iris sensors work with SmartThings prior to the service ending, so Iris users who would like to switch to SmartThings can seamlessly make the transition.'

SmartThings makes it easy for consumers to create a truly custom smart home. For a limited time, enjoy $20 off every $100 purchase, and $40 off every $200 smart home purchase on Samsung.com.
