SSH access to SmartThings Hub or Connect Home Pro?

Pretty much sums it up - looking to buy a hub into the smart things, but prefer one that I can have root access through SSH to customize it to my own liking.

Any of the Samsung allowing root access through SSH?


Not going to happen.


That sucks. I guess I will probably be looking at another brand.

Last question - Connect Home or the Pro, are they using local or cloud storage?

The only SmartThings hub that performs any local processing (IIRC) is the v2.0 SmartThings Hub. There is no local storage though, it is all cloud storage.


I’m pretty certain you’ll have a hard time finding a commercial product like the SmartThings/Wink/etc that will allow you SSH access, let alone root access to the hub.

You’re probably better off with something like OpenHAB or Home Assistant.


Micasaverde Vera does, even with root access.
