HOME_half width_PRODUCTSUPPORT_Smartthings2

Are you already using a SmartThings hub at home? Team your smart devices with your Automate shades to get the full experience.

To begin, the hub recognizes smart devices, connects them to work together and you create your own rules, establish scenes or automation to simplify your life.

Set a rule for whenever the temperature reaches above 80 degrees outside. Your Automate shades lower, thermostat sets to 72 degrees and all your lights turn off; flawlessly keeping your environment cool.

If This Then That

Smart Shade Control with IFTTT


IFTTT is a free online service that uses “connections” to trigger actions from your smart devices to help create an inviting smart home experience.

Perhaps you’d like to watch a movie and instantly create a cinematic atmosphere? Imagine this. Set up a scenario that creates a link between your smart remote control and your Automate shades. When you instruct Google Assistant to trigger “movie time”, your television switches on and effortlessly your Automate shades lower, to reduce the glare and create the perfect screening environment.

Create your own connections or utilize the convenient pre-set connections created by the Automate team. Links are available below.
