What is SmartThings, and How Does It Work with Smart Locks?
SmartThings is Samsung’s automation platform for managing smart home appliances. This platform exists as an app and it’s compatible with various brands.
While all Samsung devices can be connected directly to the SmartThings App, you’ll need the SmartThings hub to pair non-Samsung smart home appliances to the SmartThings Hub. That said, the SmartThings Hub only supports Z-wave and Zigbee connectivity.
One of the smart home appliances you can connect to SmartThings is a smart lock. To connect a compatible smart lock to SmartThings, you’ll first need to purchase a SmartThings hub and connect it to the SmartThings app.
Once you’ve integrated your SmartThings Hub with the SmartThings app, you can connect your smart lock to the SmartThings platform.
