    May 1, 2020


    When you use Philips Hue with Samsung SmartThings, you can control and automate all of your smart home devices — doorbells, blinds, smart plugs, Philips Hue lights, and more — simultaneously from the Samsung SmartThings app.

     

    To connect Philips Hue to Samsung SmartThings, you’ll need: 

     

    • Philips Hue Bridge
    • Philips Hue light(s)
    • Samsung SmartThings app
    • Samsung SmartThings hub (optional)

     

    Before you get started, make sure that you have installed your Hue Bridge, lights, and accessories.

    This method uses the Samsung SmartThings Hub to connect your smart home devices:

    Connect Philips Hue without Samsung SmartThings Hub

     

    Connecting your Philips Hue lights to your Samsung SmartThings app doesn’t necessarily require a SmartThings Hub: 

     

    1. From the home screen, tap the Plus (+) icon
    2. Tap Device and sort by brand
    3. Tap Philips Hue
    4. Tap Philips Hue without a SmartThings Hub
    5. Sign in to your Hue account and grant permission to SmartThings
    6. Select a Location and Room and tap Next

    What you can do with Samsung SmartThings and Hue

     

    Now that you’ve connected Philips Hue with Samsung SmartThings, you have the ability to control not only your Philips Hue smart lights, but all of your other smart home devices with specially automated scenes. 

     

    For example, you can wake up to your own personal sunrise with a Wake up routine in the Hue app as well as a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Create an automation in the Samsung SmartThings app that triggers your smart coffee machine as soon as your Wake up light turns on — creating the wake-up call you’ve always wanted.
