We just published 5 more SmartApps in the “More” section of SmartSetup. Like the many other SmartApps found under the “Actions,” “Alerts,” and “More” sections of the free SmartThings app, this latest batch lets you create rules that trigger your home to react when different things happen. Once you set these rules, your will begin to automatically react to your unique preferences and become a smart home!

Here’s a look at what’s new and which members of the SmartThings Community submitted these new SmartApps.

This SmartApp provides an integration between SmartThings and Initial State’s event visualization platform. With this SmartApp, a SmartThings/Initial State user can see an instant dashboard and accompanied set of visualizations for the current and past states of all SmartThings devices in their SmartThings network.

Why change one Phillips hue or other RGB light at a time when you change them all at once? This SmartApp defines one “leader” light that other ones follow and makes it easy to change all the lights in a single room at one time. Whether you’re turning your lights off to go to sleep, dimming them for a movie, or changing them for a dance party, this will fill so many needs.

With summer well underway, we are all feeling the heat. Stop sweating about remembering to set your thermostat with this SmartApp. Thermostat Mode Director will tell your thermostat to cool/heat you when the temperature outside gets either too cold or hot. You’ll also never need to worry about “cooling the neighborhood.” If someone opens a door or window, the thermostat will turn off.

We all know the feeling of getting into bed only to remember that the lights are still on and the switch is just out of reach. This SmartApp aims to alleviate that burden by leveraging a conveniently placed Multi sensor face down on your nightstand as your switch. Simply flip the Multi sensor up to toggle the lights!


CO2 Vent

Worry no more about Carbon Dioxide leaks! This SmartApp takes monitoring one step further than most typical alarms and takes proactive steps to keep you safe. Any time the Carbon Dioxide levels increase beyond a certain threshold a vent is turned on to get rid of any CO2 in the air.

SmartThings, Samsung, and the Open Platform

Friends, Today is a big day for SmartThings. I’m excited to announce that SmartThings has been acquired by Samsung and will operate as an independent company within Samsung’s Open Innovation Center group. It has always been our goal to create a totally open smart home platform that brings together third-party developers, device makers, and consumers. We’re thrilled that Samsung fully supports this vision. We will continue to run SmartThings the way we always have: by embracing our community of customers, developers, and device makers and championing the creation of the leading open platform for the smart home. Our growing team will remain fully intact and will relocate to a new headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. In short: SmartThings will remain SmartThings. (more…)

The Next Generation of SmartThings is Here

We’re excited to announce that the next generation of the Samsung SmartThings Hub, a new lineup of products, and a brand-new SmartThings app experience is available today. Our mission has always been to create the easiest way for people to turn their home into a smart home. In fact, we started SmartThings out of a desire to know the answer to a basic but deeply personal question: is everything OK in my home.  We believe our latest product evolution delivers on this ambition. Here's a look at what's new and improved: The New Samsung SmartThings Hub and Sensors The new Hub enables video streaming, has battery backup that lasts up to 10 hours, and can run certain functions locally to improve performance and continue to operate without an internet connection. The Hub will continue to support ZigBee, Z-Wave, and local internet connected devices. Two USB ports and embedded Bluetooth will support future expansion. The new collection of Samsung SmartThings sensors are now smaller and have been redesigned with a sleeker, more contemporary look to fit seamlessly into the background of your home. The New SmartThings App Experience The free SmartThings app has been redesigned for easier navigation and a more intuitive experience.  You can now directly organize and control your connected devices by room, view live streaming from cameras, quickly set up and run routines, explore the marketplace of nearly 200 devices now compatible with SmartThings, and so much more. One of the exciting new features of the SmartThings app experience is Smart Home Monitor– an integrated home monitoring solution. Smart Home Monitor allows you to receive alerts and take action when SmartThings detects unwanted entry or motion, smoke or fire, leaks, or other important activity. Existing customers will be able to configure Smart Home Monitor from their dashboard within 24 hours after downloading the updated app. With Smart Home Monitor, our Hub version 2, and a connected camera, you can also get instant alerts with an accompanying video-clip when these unexpected events occur.  Video buffering in the new hub means clips can start prior to the event so you can see exactly what is happening in your home. Video clips will eventually be a premium feature within Smart Home Monitor but are available in beta as a free trial through 2015. After the free trial, a premium version of Smart Home Monitor, which includes video clips, will be available for $4.99 per month. Live streaming will always be free. The new SmartThings app will be available for free download on iOS and Android starting today, with Apple Watch, and Gear S apps to follow. Be sure to check out our post for a more in-depth look at the app’s new features. We would like to extend our heart-felt thanks to our customers, supporters, and developer community. Your commitment, feedback, and ideas are what make our open platform truly special. We hope you you enjoy the new SmartThings experience.
