  • Easy setup
  • No closed plans or monthly fees

SmartThings is what you can call a DIY home security system.  Through the SmartThings Hub, the "brain" of the platform, you can link any device (with Bluetooth, ZigBee, or Z-Wave capacity) from anywhere.Instead of being locked into a home security system that only allows you to use the equipment they offer, you can shop around to find the best smart products and build up your own security unit.


Control from anywhere is important to the SmartThings platform. That's why, through your smartphone or tablet you can:

  • Receive alerts when windows and doors open/close
  • Lock doors and turn off/on lights remotely through your phone
  • Get instant alerts when there is unexpected movement inside/in front of your home
  • Set up an optional alarm to trigger when there's unwanted movement anywhere on your property but the difference remains a token in the symbol of diverse magnetism
