Welcome to the SmartThings developer documentation portal!

The SmartThings ecosystem includes over a billion Galaxy devices and Samsung appliances, millions of customers, and an ever-increasing number of partners and developers. We believe that a large ecosystem of partners is the best way to bring joyful and meaningful moments to customers. At SmartThings, we’re working towards a more integrated, innovative, and impactful future. Join us.

SmartThings provides a cohesive platform for IoT devices to interoperate and communicate, enabling smarter living solutions that enrich our world. SmartThings Developers can access a unified set of capabilities, an instant mobile UI, and leverage voice control with Amazon Alexa, Bixby, and Google Assistant.

To achieve this, we provide a robust set of development tools that empower you to build new and innovative user experiences that leverage and enhance the SmartThings Platform.

Bring Your Ideas to Life#
