Is Samsung SmartThings Discontinued? (Jan 2024)

Welcome! :sunglasses:

Samsung SmartThings as a home automation platform is not discontinued.

Various individual hubs, devices, apps, and features have been discontinued from time to time, and Samsung reserves the right to change anything at any time, including device support. (That’s in the terms of service that you agree to when you first set up a SmartThings account.)

For example, in 2023, Samsung dropped smartthings features that were used with any Samsung televisions older than 2018 even though previously, they had worked fine. it can happen. :man_shrugging:t2:

The SmartThings app will allow you to have up to 200 total devices. There may be other limitations in specific situations. For example, a single smartthings/Aeotec hub can support up to 64 directly connected, non-repeating Zigbee devices like Sengled light bulbs or batterypowered sensors. But you can increase this number by adding some mainspowered Zigbee devices like smart plugs or light switches that can act as “repeaters“ and help get messages to the hub.

Finally, some features and some devices are limited to specific regions.

So, as always, the first rule of Home Automation applies: “the model number matters.” Even in something as simple as the number of devices that you can add to your account. :thinking:

What kind of setup were you considering, and specifically, which television models did you want to use with SmartThings?
