The Official SmartThings App for Windows | Quick Look on the Galaxy Book S

by birtanpublished on November 27, 2020

Yo what's the other trailer today I'm recording my galaxy fold again but you can see right here that I got my galaxy book that's in I finally slapped our Jenny stamp of approval stick around here because this thing gets my Jenning stamp of approval most definitely but we're gonna be going to hand checking out the smart things that for windows so I don't know how long I've been waiting for this but we finally got a smart things app on Windows I've been wanting this for like a good minute now so if you sim some smart things like I do it's finally out on Windows so you can finally use on your PC but there's a

Catch on it I'll get that in a minute but let's go and roll the intro let's get into it alright so yeah like I was saying you can finally go ahead and get smart things for Windows so if I go and look up on the Microsoft Store I'll look up smart things you'll see right here it should pop up in the search results and there we go right there so it's the official Samsung smartthings app right here you can see by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd but here's the catch so I don't know if you recognize this already but if you go over here to the system requirements you need to have an ARM

Based PC so something like the Galaxy book that's right here you need something like this to use smart things so if you have something like let me grab this over here my galaxy bug flex you can't use smart things out here that's really way and if I go over here to the Microsoft Store again I'll go ahead and log in real quick and go over to the reviews you can see I complain about this apparently 2326 people found that review helpful so cool so yeah that's really whack that you need to have an ARM based PC in order to use the smart things app

On Windows and I'm pretty sure it has to be a galaxy look at that so I'm pretty sure it's the galaxy book exclusive I don't think you can use them like a surface pro X or something like that and I'm pretty sure the galaxy book has a Samsung's first ARM based PC so like pretty much you just need to have a galaxy but guess in order to use the smart things a bit I know it's so stupid maybe smart things has a limitation right now you need to have an ARM architecture in your device so that's why it's limited to the galaxy but that's right now in Android and iOS and

All that definitely could be a thing but it sucks I can't use that my galaxy book flex in my notebook knife pro or like something else like that now if you have a surface pro at look up smart things in the Windows Store I mean the Microsoft Store and let me know if we can download it or not now let's go and check out this smart things up here so I'll be going ahead and comparing it to the one on one UI here or into it that they have right here and we'll go and do it side by side and see how both of those work all right so basically when you pull up the smart

Things up for Windows it brings you to this setup screen here so at the top you can see a whole bunch of different devices that we can control here like a robot vacuum Samsung smart fridge or garage you know of in a cooktop whatever thermostat TV headphones outlet dryers all that stuff there so that's clean all we can control smart devices a smarter way monitor and control your devices in appliances using your computer I don't know what computer is capitalized but okay then turn on the lights unified control with the recipe you define and watch the security camera

Sign in to your Samsung Account to get the most out of smart things okay cool so basically from here you just go to sign-in obviously and then it brings you to the Samsung Account screen so you're just go and login from here and once you got all your info in I'm gonna just go ahead I'll remember my ID but you I'm gonna do that I'm going sign in here and then it should bring you to the screen here where you got to go ahead well if you have two step verification on anyways we're all send you a text message to your number like I just got someone going in or that cold right now

I'm gonna skip the 2-step verification on this phone next time even though this ain't a phone obviously I'm going hit our verify and then there we go so I'm gonna go ahead and agree to the terms and conditions and stuff like that hit OK and then we're it's a smart thing so it's gonna sink all my devices real quick and there you go so you can see well most of my device is right here and I'm going to go ahead and miss some real quick so the beginning part of this video was actually recorded like a month or two ago and actually forgot that I record the video and I never posted it

On YouTube I don't really know why but I wanted to go ahead and rerecord this part right here because well a lots changed in the last month or two it turns my whole smart home so you'll see that in a minute I'm actually glad that I record this now instead of before I mean even literally right now I have somebody underway right now with the pick up order that order from Best Buy and it's actually a smart switch from tp-link and I also ordered a smart water sensor so a water leak sensor from smart things all right so yeah anyways as you can see he

This is my smart home you can see like I said most of my devices not everything here so you can see in my basement as my Philips to hub I have my samsung 6 series 50-inch TV on the fire TV stick and put all of my smart lights and everything I can see my robot vacuum door way light and I can also see some things here like my motion sensors more lights yeah it's fooling you but yeah like I was saying like not everything shows up in here like I also have a smart garage door opener by next and that doesn't show up in here now maybe if I got some

Other type of smart garage door opener then they will show up in here but right now I don't see nothing and then you can see here I can go ahead and turn on the lights turn off the lights or whatever I want to do see yeah as you can see here I can control the devices that see here on the screen but that's pretty much where it ends because if I go ahead and click on the button here or click on the icon or whatever I want to do I can't manage those actions therefore that device so if I wanted to go ahead and recharge my robot vacuum and set a schedule or

Whatever I want to do for it I can't do that on here which is really annoying and even going over here to something like my Galaxy Tab you can see here that we have way more functionality on the smart things app for my gallery tab on Android it's the same exact functionality that you'll find on the Galaxy phone or maybe even an iPad or an iPhone like look I can even scroll down here and I can see some here like my garage so that's not right here but it is out here I can make lighting groups out here and it will show up on here but it won't

Show up on there you can even see like if I go over here to the motion sensors this the motion sensor icon and you can see it on here it's outdated on here we got the old motion sensor right card if I want to go and manage my porch light here and change the color and all that if I want to I can do that but on the windows up here if I go over here to my porch you can see here if I scroll up which it's not doing right now it's really weird ok so as you can see a little bit buggy there I think it just froze there or something but yeah as you can see I'm clicking on it here and it's

Not doing anything clicking on it whatever it's not working you could tap on there you could do whatever you want to it's not gonna do nothing the only thing you'll do is just turn it on and off and like I said you can see the status here like if this is blue here that means the lights on or I can go to my robot vacuum and see that it's charging or even like my TV and see that's on the fire TV stick right now but that's pretty much it if you have lighting groups you won't have that out here you need to go ahead and make some scenes here sitting actually go ahead

And control multiple devices and yeah so that's pretty much the smartthings app for windows now let me go ahead and go upstairs not going show you all some of this stuff working Oh y'all so I'm actually still in my basement as you can see right here if I just turn around but I figured I'd go ahead and show you all down here first because I have a smartthings motion sensor and I also have two smartthings bulbs down here so what go in walk in here right now and you will see that these down here where it says laundry room we'll go ahead and change so you can see motion detected

And both of these lights just turned on and it's showing the app so leaving that right there and walking over here you can see right here this is a smart things motion sensor in and if I look at this light bulb that is a smart things bold pretty sure you can see the logo right there and then the same exact thing over there now if I want to go and control these here I can go I turn that off and turn that off and as you can see it worked just fine and obviously it's still showing that motion detected in here so I'm gonna go and walk out of here and yeah so now been out there long

Enough and as you can see it just changed in no motion now let's go upstairs alright so now I'm in my kitchen here and as you can see the motion sensor triggered it here because I have a motion sensor just sitting right there for now because I really know what to do with it just yet not till I get a smart outlet in and also get a Wi-Fi extender so I can go in my garage and then turn on my garage lights when I walk in there see yeah as you can see here the ceiling light in the kitchen is on because of that motion sensor and it's also a

Philips heel bulb now let's go over here to my living room so now I'm in my living room as you can see here I go and turn on the doorway light and it works just like this turn it back off go on turn on the table light which is right over here and I just turned on and this is my Samsung powered by turbo robot vacuum and I'm about to go on controller here with the smart things app on windows so you can see right here is charge in which it's obviously doing right now so now I'm gonna click on the play button and watch this so let's go ahead and do that now and there we go so

Now it's actually going and the light turned on because I've I have TGT triggered so when the robot vacuum starts the lights turned on so I can see in here so you can see right there that it actually says cleaning and pause it if I want to so let's go and do that and you can see right there the pause symbols so it is positive right now and if I just go on top on this play button right here you'll see that the status will change as you can see you there now the problem is like I said I can't recharge this thing from the smart things app on Windows but I cannot enjoy

And I don't like this so let's go and do that right now and there we go so it's gonna go back here to the charger it's gonna turn off my lights and if I go over here to the smart things app it says returning for charging so just how it's supposed to be we're gonna wait till this thing goes back to the charger and I hate when they get stuck here on this shag rug I really do but alright so returning for charging and there we go it should be docking here in a minute looks like it's trying to figure itself out right now and there we go so now it's back in the charger and it should

Change you're in a minute so now as you can see there it is charging and now one last thing so this my samsung 6 series 58 inch TV so now let's go ahead and turn that thing off so here we go pressing the power button right now and it just turned off like that and it turned off really quickly and now as you can see right there it's offline and that's normal so I'm not really surprised about that so guys that's pretty much it for the smart things up on windows on my galaxy book is so let me know in the comments below what do you think about this app I really hope

They improve it soon I really want to see some more functionality other thing because I think it's gonna be really great but right now it's really limited all I can do is just turn on and off the things and that's in my house so we'll see what it looks like with that water leak sensor and also that smart switch maybe if that comes in time and I get that it started time for the video probably not at this point but if I don't I'll probably just go ahead and put a comment down below with a picture of what it looks like in here so that's gonna be pretty much it for me also

Thanks for watching if you like this video go and give this video a like and if you really liked it go and subscribe but gonna follow me on my social media at ESET SiC on this Agreement Twitter and Facebook but it's agreement Twitter's our most active but yeah so stay tuned for my smart home video because this is gonna be fun so I'm gonna get out of here y'all thanks for watching now see on the next one and peace so
