Although it may not receive the same level of attention as the ecosystems provided by Amazon, Google, and Apple, Samsung’s SmartThings is an extremely robust and adaptable system. Although the number of available devices is smaller than you’ll find for Alexa or Google Home, there are still lots of large brands here including Arlo, Bose, Sonos, Nest, Hue, Innr, Lifx, Belkin, and Ring.
It is a smart home platform, but it is also the term that Samsung uses for its own compatible devices. This means that it is built inside the company’s phones and laptops… and even some of its refrigerators.
SmartThings is structured around a hub, which also interacts with Zigbee and Z-Wave so you can hook up third-party devices. The SmartThings phone app is compatible with both iOS and Android. All your smart devices connected to it can be controlled via Google Assistant and Alexa as well as Samsung’s own Bixby.
