Like Hive, this is a family of products controlled from a specific SmartThings hub. It’s mostly focused on sensors – including motion sensors, moisture, door and window sensors, and a ‘presence’ sensor that someone carries to tell you when they enter or leave the house. There is a more active device, in the form of a smart power plug.
However, unlike Hive, there’s a range of smart home products from other manufacturers that are compatible with the system, including cameras, lights and speakers. These can all be controlled and linked through the SmartThings app for iOS and Android, and can be set to trigger each other automatically.
It doesn’t have its own voice command option, but you can control a SmartThings setup via Google Home (and Google Assistant on your phone) and Amazon Echo.
