Connecting to SmartThings Hub from 2nd Phone

I have the Samsung GP-U999SJVLGDA 3rd Generation SmartThings Hub successfully setup and working on the cell phone (1) I carry around with me. I have a second cell phone (2) kept on my kitchen counter that I use for managing home devices when at home.

I installed the app on cell phone (2) and have tried scanning for existing devices as well as adding the hub manually with no luck.

How can I access and manage the hub from this second phone?

Check for a possible second Location. In the new app, click on the menu (3 bars in the upper left of the screen), you should see Home listed with a down arrow to the right of the name. Click on that and see if there are two locations and switch to the other one. Then check that your hub and devices appear in the app.

It wasn’t there but in going through the steps you listed, I realized on the 2nd phone, I had signed in with a different email/account. I deleted that account from the phone (an old HTC) and signed in with the other account and it immediately displayed the hub and all the devices.

Many thanks for the prompt reply :+1:
