Making a SmartThings widget on my smartphone that controls several lights


I’ve just started using SmartThings for my smart home and saw that it is possible to control individual lights using widgets on your homescreen.

But is it possible to make a widget that controls several lights at once?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if you’re using iOS or Android, but I think the capabilities are similar with the ST app (I have Android). You can create a scene and put that in a widget. Or create a virtual switch that can be used to create an automation to control multiple lights at once. Not an easy/direct way, but there are various ways to make it happen.


Again, not sure what system you’re on for your phone, but you can also use sharptools. It’s cheap but you can make individual widgets.
