How to pair old Smartthings devices (leak, temp, motion, etc)

I struggled with my new hub to pair some old Smartthings devices because I had tossed the manuals. I finally found on the web how to get the devices to re-pair, and thought I could save someone a bit of trouble.

to put in add mode

  1. remove battery from the device
  2. start pairing on the phone
  3. hold down metal ball for reset (I used a thin screwdriver)
  4. insert battery - light will turn orange
  5. remove reset while light is on
  6. light turns blue and blinks

may need to take the battery out and reinsert a few times. Also if it isn’t pairing then hit exit on the phone, when it asks if you are sure hit resume.
