Hello,

The hub should work in any country as long as you have an internet connection, and appropriate voltage/plug adapter to power it.

Also FYI, z-wave radios work on different frequencies that vary by region. The U.K. hub’s z-wave controller runs on the frequency approved in the EU.

You probably won’t get any technical support or warranty coverage outside of the US and UK though, if you have any problems with your hub or connected devices.

I’m Romanian, but I’ll reply to you in English. There’s no reason the hub won’t work in Romania, or anywhere in the world. As long as you provide with the volts and amps it needs, it’ll work fine. You can even get a US version hub. Zwave and Zigbee are pretty low power radios, so even if the US hub isn’t “approved” to work there, it doesn’t really matter. You won’t be bothering anybody else with it. It’s too low power to matter.

But to keep it short, as long as you find a way to power it properly, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work. Bafta and enjoy!

Salut! I can confirm that it works fine in Romania. I got mine from the UK 2 weeks ago.

At the moment i only have what was included in the Starter Kit and some Hue lights, but its been working fine so far. For power i just use a UK to EU adapter without problems.

If i can help by answering any questions, let me know.

SmartThings is available for retail sale in North America and the UK. People use it in plenty of other countries, presumably by ordering it online.

There is an online retailer smart-things.ro, however it is not official and their prices are significantly higher than official Smartthings prices


(Catalin) #9

that’s the reason why i will not order from that website…all the products are overpriced

Looks like they’re selling it for about double the price in the US.

How much would it cost you to buy from an online retailer in US or UK, if you add in shipping, customs duties, etc?


(Lorin Dragan) #11

No customs duties if it is from UK. It is EU…still:)
