No good for security. Keeps reseting to away mode when I'm home thus setting off the alarms whenever I open an exterior door and giving several push messages and text messages that have to be acknowledged or deleted. So far, 100% of intrusion alerts are false alarms. Disconnected siren after the first 2 or 3 times. Update*** Changed rating to 1. Now door lock not working after last update. Updated*** again, still no good for security. Too many false alarms. Geofencing not accurate enough to be reliable.
It has been getting worse and now it does not work anymore. I CANNOT SIGN IN. The app demands samsung browser and even if that bloatware is installed and made default, the app complaints and refuses to work. Samsung -- FIX THIS -- I have $300 worth of your hardware that I cannot use anymore because of lousy development. Why the heck a browser is needed to acquire a password??
App now seems more reliable and polished. That's the only good thing. The SmartThings own brand sensors which seem to need constant battery outs and in for them to work otherwise they stay offline. Major issue, there is no reliability.
Required the Samsung internet browser to be installed to let me set up an account, despite lying that it was supported in chrome. Miserable experience setting up hub. After five minutes it isn't connected and I don't know if it will. Awful user experience to say the least.
Each day, I have more problems. Been using smartthings apps for years and each update I download things get worse. My home is automated and now I have to turn everything on manually. Except 1 lamp,out of about 30 smartthings compatible devices. What is going on? Samsung 😠
App makes smart things hub very Easy to set up. Hub works with many devices, certified by Samsung. App is funtionally capable, though could be more intuitive, and needs more user documentation on the concepts. Hooked it up to my Arlo cameras, easy but still working out a hurdles. Recommend
We've been hard at work making the SmartThings app better for you. This version of the app includes bug fixes, stabilization, and several usability improvements.
Thanks for supporting SmartThings! If you're happy with the updates, we'd really appreciate a review.
