SmartThings allows you to monitor, control, and automate a wide range of connected devices in your home. For example, you can set connected lights to turn on and off at the touch of a button, at the same time each day, when you open doors and windows, when motion is detected in your home, or when you say “Turn on the kitchen lights.”
Z-Wave and ZigBee are wireless radio frequency communication protocols designed for control, monitoring, and status-reading of connected devices. In other words, Z-Wave and ZigBee are the different languages your SmartThings Hub and devices use to talk to one another.

You can connect hundreds of individual devices at any one time to a SmartThings Hub (or a compatible device with SmartThings Hub functionality), so you never need to worry about having too many smart devices in your home.
SmartThings works with a wide range of connected devices, including lights, speakers, locks, thermostats, sensors, and more. Look for the Works with SmartThings label next time you’re buying a connected device for your home.
Please ensure that you are connecting devices that are SmartThings certified for Australia, in particular, Z-Wave devices.
