New App Releases & Features

Hello!
We’re excited to announce that we’ve just released an update to both the SmartThings iOS and SmartThings Android apps. These new versions are now available for free download in the app store and in the Google Play store, and also coincide with several other new features that we’ve recently unveiled.

Here’s a rundown of what’s new as part of 1.6.4, and elsewhere:

• You can now add your smartphone as a presence-sensing device (“Mobile Presence”) using SmartSetup. To do so, just go to the “Things” category in SmartSetup and tap “Presence Sensors,” as shown. (Click the below image to enlarge.)

• Customers using Hello, Home now have the added functionality to add/adjust modes based on the day of the week.

• There has always been a built-in 10-minute delay to all Hello, Home actions. To help customers, we are now visually displaying this default time more noticeably, and enabling people to customize it to their preferred delay time.

• New devices that you connect will now appear in the mobile iOS and Android apps more quickly

• When you create three rows in the Dashboard, you’ll see a quick tip about re-ordering them (to remove it, simply long press any row, drag, and drop). –iOS only, Android forthcoming

• As needed, you are now able to pull down to refresh the Dashboard. –iOS only, Android forthcoming

    How I wish this stuff came to Android just as quickly. There is a huge need for this!

    Please add the time of the events for events older than the actual day. We can see the time of the event only for the events on the actual day not for any past day. But for a security related system this feature is must (to be able to check the time of any event of any past day. Using the event list on the website I can see the time of the day of any event on any day so this is definitively available to be shown by the App. Just a quick update needed.

    Please make it easier to “uninstall” devices. Why do I have to scavenge around finding every place they are listed in dashboard, smartapps, and hello home? Uninstall should do all that for me.

      That is a good feature request. We will look into how best to do that and add it to the backlog if it isn’t already.

        Awesome, thanks!

    I emailed support about this one, but it would be nice to have multiple away zone distances, a short distance could be setup to lock doors, turn lights out, and adjusts the thermostat while a further distance turns the thermostat in to a deeper away mode. IFTTT was recommended by support but didn’t find ability to control modes from there.
