Samsung SmartThings announced that Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit is available to purchase in the US and online.


The Home Monitoring Kit has everything you need to start monitoring, controlling, and securing your home from anywhere. It allows you to protect your home more affordable than a traditional home security system, get immediate alerts if there’s unexpected entry or motion in your home, and control your home from the palm of your hand. The Home Monitoring Kit retails for $249.


The Kit includes:

  • The new SmartThings Hub to connect smart sensors, lights, locks, cameras, and more
  • Two Multipurpose Sensors to monitor whether doors, windows, cabinets, or your garage are open or closed
  • A Motion Sensor to monitor movement in your home
  • An Outlet to control lights, electronics, and small appliances


Once you’ve downloaded the SmartThings app on either Android or iOS, you can start setting up your Home Monitoring Kit to monitor and secure your home.


By going to the Smart Home Monitor feature in the app, you’ll be able to receive alerts and take action whenever the devices in your Home Monitoring Kit detect unwanted entry, motion, or other unexpected activity. You can also arm and disarm your home at different times of the day and add compatible cameras, locks, alarms, and more to enhance your smart home.



Ready to get started?


The new kit is available for purchase in the US at Best Buy stores,,,,, and–coming soon!–Sears stores,, and more.


Select retail stores will also be selling the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro alongside the Home Monitoring Kit. By pairing the two together, you’ll have everything you need to not only know what’s happening at home from anywhere, but also to see what’s going on when you’re not around. Unlike other home monitoring solutions, SmartThings only captures video clips when an unexpected event occurs, so you can maintain privacy while having complete peace of mind.


It’s never been easier, or more affordable, to turn your home into a smart home.
