Can I control my devices when I am not connected to my WiFi?

Hello I am new using Smart Things.
I noticed that I can control my lights only when I am connected to a WiFi when I am away from home. Is is possible to do this but over the internet, not necessarily connected to a WiFi? I thought this was possible.

Hi @smonsalve,

You can control your house from across the World! All you need is your account, SmartThings app, and Internet connection.

Have you checked the settings on your phone? Could it be that you have restricted data access for the Smartthings app?


I just figured it out. It was working all this time.
The “Samsung Connect” app has a dashboard and every time I opened it it showed that the hub was disconnected, but I was able to control the lights from the app directly and also from the smart things app without being connected to any WiFi.

Thanks guys for your time and help.
