New SmartThings App - Add SmartApp only show custom apps

Probably not. As @Brad_ST described, where the v2 Hub was released. Denmark wasn’t on the list. V3 has been released under the Samsung era, by the Samsung accounts’ country limitations and Samsung’s extremely bad product support. It is like a fire and forget weapon. Fire the product and forget to support it beyond what is the interest of the company.
Smartthings was never like this, but things are driven by the mother company more and more.

Same in Finland, no smart apps available at all. Luckily those I had installed from classic app are still functional.
This un-equality is just stupid. If I make a decision to move another hub/ecosystem, these pointless regional limitations is one of biggest reasons.
What are the local regulations in Nordic countries that could possibly limit or prohibit my usage of any ST smart apps? I really want to know!
Correction: I have one smart app available, ST Clothing Care beta. Yippee…

Thanks @Olli-Pekka_Kurppa, I agree, it does not make sense :slight_smile:
Also, why was it available in Classic, but not now.
I guess it is time to move to another system.

Thanks @GSzabados - it sounds like a joke, except that it is not :frowning: So we, who were on in the early days, we are now punished, that’s great :slight_smile: :grinning:

It could be worse, you could have a partner from another region, and you couldn’t share your SmartThings home with the partner. :smiley:

Even more great :- :rofl:

Which button-device are you using? Does the app register when button 2 is pressed? It sounds like it is either a sync issue or device handler issue.

I must chime in to say Asia Pacific is being treated the same and there is zero smartapp available, I don’t quite understand except if there is some copyright issue with the code, the only good thing is I can still publish custom smartapp or device handler, which I don’t know if it is going away soon

Hi @Brad_ST, I have different button devices and the problem is not that they don’t work, but there are no apps available in the new smartthings app where is is possible to select what button that should trigger the event.

Back with the Classic app, I could select what should happen if button one was clicked and so forth, now I can only select Pressed, Double Pressed, Held and similar choices, not anything about which button.

It sounds like the device handler you are using for your buttons is identifying multiple buttons using ‘buttonNumber’ in the event data. A number of legacy apps such as Smart Lighting and webCoRE can handle that approach, which was also used for multiple presses of single buttons, but it isn’t an approach that works with new integrations such as Automations. The current approach is to use composite devices where each button is a separate device. New integrations address the buttons as components while legacy apps can see separate devices.

Thanks @orangebucket, I get it.
So I have to select another device drivers for my button devices in order to have each button registered separately?



Never really noticed anything until today, but apparently, my account is set up for Tuvalu(?) as opposed to my US residency.

As such, I find nothing in my SmartApps other than my custom apps via GitHub.

In attempting to change it via my samsung account… well… it is not changeable.

Any ideas? I did send an email to support, but…

@Jason_Meudt, you should create your own post to get more attentions, I think…

Just wanted to confirm that this is real and completely stupid. I’m “locked out” in EU region. Without adding the apps via the GoodOLD SmartThings app (back then a long time ago). I wouldn’t even know that there’s an app like smartLighting or similar.

Anyway, thank you Samsung for offering me exactly just one ONE app. SmartThings Clothing care… RudeWordAndGesturePlaceholder

This is 101 on how NOT to run a community based ecosystem

Same here living in Sweden… really frustrating that I hear that dimmer features (from physical dimmers) should be available in the “Smart Lightning” app becuase the basic functionality is just beyond terrible where you only can match a button click to a fix dim level. Seems like extremely basic thing to allow light controllers to increase and decrease lights using a +/- buttons or a wheel, or did I miss something? (that it can be done without an awfull amount of automations)

I have the same issue in the UK. Does anyone have any new SmartApps available to add in the new app?

same for Caribbean

It is possible to add SmartApps through the beta version of the SmartThings Dashboard located at Under “Automations” you can add your old Groovy SmartApps from the SmartThings IDE page.


Well, I added a SmartApp today with no problem. Specifically a WeMo dimmer groovy app and everything is working great.

Thanks for this - it helps getting as far as “Tap ‘Done’ to continue to Devices.”, but I can’t see to have a ‘Done’ button, how did you configure devices?

In fairness, so far I only attempted the setup as I am about to choose and purchase a thermostat, and wondering if Tado would work before I purchase as I’d prefer it across other options!

edit: found an answer to this here FAQ: Did we lose the ability to add custom smartapps after the app update of June 2021? - #6 by jkp and it worked perfectly! - thanks @jkp :slight_smile:
