    If you want an easy home automation system. This is your device. Samsung is constantly making improvements and they do listen to end-users. Easy to setup and add devices. This starter kit will get you introduced to home automation in no time. You can go basic or you can go crazy with all this zwave and zigbee devices. I personally prefer zwave devices as they have better range and device selections by many manufacturers. This deal with bestbuy was the best buy. Keep watching it and from time to time, you'll see it at 50% off for the basic kit. Enjoy!

    The Smart Things Hub is awesome. I LOVE the door sensors. They give you the temperature in the room where they are installed! Brilliant! With a three story home it allows me to see what the temperature is on each floor. Also Syncs with ARLO cameras and Ring Doorbell. Also I can use Amazon Echo devices to command the outlet to turn on/off. I will add outside outlets that allow me to turn on/off Christmas lights without having to go out in the cold!

    I bought the SmartThing Kit so I could be aware I left the garage door open. I also bought a garage door sensor and programmed the hub to turn on a Smart thing outlet whenever the door was open. That works great. From there I put a sensor on my shed door, a leak sensor near my sump and furnace. There are lots of sensors that are compatible using Z-wave and Zigbee wireless technology.

    was looking for this after I picked up a few Amazon Echos for the house, this opens and closes my front door and arms my alarm system and we are able to monitor our home when we are away, comes with a few plugs for fans, lights, etc.. that you can use your voice to turn on

    We bought this for one of our clients that wanted to automate a few lights and thermostat. Having total home control via the app is where this product shines. Easy to grow with your needs with zwave products, simple setup and scale-able. I now own one myself and find new uses for it all the time, makes my life easier like technology should.

    Utilizing this kit to supply a means to track who and when comes in to our home when no one is home. Easy to setup, but working through a variety of the "kinks". Wish I had some more time on my hands, because there are a few really cool things you can do with this product.

    I started with The Phillips Hue bulbs and i now have the brains to run countless smart devices for my smart home. This product let's you add everything you need or want in a smart home. It has worked without any issues. It is easy to set up and use. This is a must have.

    Very easy to set up and maintain. Much better than the Vera, although I wish they had Backup and Restore capability. The Z-wave wasn't working on my unit at first, before I had time to contact them - Smartthings emailed me about the issue and sent a replacement unit right away.

    Worked perfectly right our of the box. I had no issues connecting our Arlo cameras, Hue lights and other sensors. I read the other reviews where people have had issues with the 'new' app, but so far, everything has worked as expected. Alexa control is quick and reliable.

    Great kit to start making your home smart, has enough sensors and excellent hub to begin your journey. I have added more items over time, and currently integrate it all with smart displays and speakers. Wife approved!

    I'm very happy with this product; it accurately gives alerts of motion at my doors and windows as I needed, I feel more safe at home now, and even when I am away from home, I can check from my phone the status of my home.

    This is the one hub to rule them all - a system that can really tie up you smarthome (as long as it supports the devices of course). Its a bit complicated to use but after you get it its gold.

    This is the second type of home automation and by far the easiest and useful system I've seen and used. I recommend starting with this kit and get use to using Smartthings and then start to add on as needed.

    Love Samsung smart home. It was very easy to set up and begin using. Love that it is compatible with many other systems. Love the temperature sensors on the door sensors. An added bonus I find very useful.

    I researched no cost home monitoring and found Samsung Smart Things to be a great value, connectivity, and available options. I have this system for 1 year and am now buying for my son.
