SmartThings V3 vs. SmartThings V2 Review: Should You Upgrade?

I’ve been a SmartThings user since 2014 and have used and owned the last three versions. Today I’ll compare the second hub to the third generation hub. We’ll also take a look at a couple of the new sensors including the Multipurpose Sensor and Water Leak Sensor.

Awesome, informative and concise video! I have the V2 and now I know I won’t be upgrading. A new sub for me, love the channel.

Did they fix the Samsung TV control problem with version 3? We lost access to them last year with aTV firmware update.

So beautiful and informative I had to watch this video twice. Any man would be lucky to have you.

Mohamed Jumah Al-Dhanhani says:

This means I don’t need to get the new one 🙂

Tomas Brandvold says:

Thanks for the video! Small tip – please turn down the gain on the mic since the noise is pretty distracting 🙂

Is the app the same one they release last year (currently available 1.6.27)?? I tried it with my old V2 hub and didn’t like, so reverted back to SmartThings Classic app.

How long do the batteries last on the devices?

I use HomeAssistant. The Hassio distribution is easy to insall on a raspberry pi, and can be configured as you need to. Works with all of my Z-wave devices.

I like the side by side view. Really nice…..

matt b says:

No migration path!? WTH was Samsung thinking?

Paul Smyers says:

Is there a home automation package that doesn’t require an internet connection? I don’t need all my stuff accessible “from the cloud”.

bryanmcdermott77 says:

Trying to figure out if I dump Wink (finally) and go with SmartThings. Any former Wink users?

JCM says:

I’ve attempted to connect my Samsung Smartcam to no avail. Any ideas?

Phil Renda says:

Thanks for posting this review. Question on the “if statements” – were you able to write nested statements on the fly? This functionality alone would move me to buy v3

R Broyld says:
