Discover the best security cams you can use with Samsung SmartThings today.
What is the SmartThings app, and how does it work? A versatile platform for both controlling and automating your smart home devices, Samsung SmartThings makes monitoring your home with security cameras simple.
From Arlo to Google Nest and beyond, there are plenty of security camera options that are compatible with Samsung SmartThings. Depending on your specific needs and budget, the Arlo Pro 4 is a reliable, high-resolution option. If you’d prefer a virtual assistant that can answer AI-generated questions, the Google Nest Cam Indoor might be your best bet.
The beauty of SmartThings Home is you can connect devices and smart home appliances to control your smart home in one place. From Google’s assistant to Logitech’s voice control camera, here are a few of the powerful cameras that are compatible with Samsung devices:
Yes. The Arlo Pro 4 series 2K HDR security camera is one of the best security devices out there that’s completely compatible with Samsung SmartThings. Its powerful 2K resolution, color night vision, and integrated spotlight will keep you in the know — even in the dark. If the camera detects intruders or uninvited guests, activate the integrated siren directly in the SmartThings app to deter any trespassers. Plus, echo-canceling 2-way audio lets you clearly hear and speak to visitors.
Yes. Another great camera that is able to work with Samsung SmartThings, the Ring Indoor Cam, is perfectly designed for indoor use and is easy to both set up and use. This security camera boasts 1080p HD resolution with motion detection capabilities that can trigger SmartThings automation like turning on lights or sending immediate alerts to your phone.
Yes. The Google Nest Cam Indoor also works with Samsung SmartThings. There are many benefits to an indoor security camera, and the Nest Cam is no exception. It has 1080p resolution and features convenient 24/7 live streaming that can be easily accessed through the SmartThings app. Just like Arlo’s Pro 5S 2K camera, the Nest Cam also offers superior night vision capabilities. Similar to Amazon Alexa, the Google Nest Cam includes a built-in Google Assistant that can be activated whenever you need it through the SmartThings app. (Fun fact: Arlo also works with Google Home.)
The Logitech Circle 2 is the final security camera that is compatible with Samsung SmartThings. Much like the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera, the Logitech Circle 2 offers 1080p video recording. The Logitech Circle 2 also provides users with a wide 180-degree field of view, ensuring that no corner of your home will go unprotected.
Arlo’s bestselling devices work seamlessly with your smart home. You can instantly receive alerts and manage your home security using your favorite devices. With Samsung SmartThings, you can integrate your Arlo camera into the SmartThings app. For example, if your Arlo camera detects motion, SmartThings tells your Aeon Labs Siren to trigger your alarm.
Once you’ve picked the right security camera for you, adding devices to Samsung SmartThings is simple. Let’s explore how to connect your Samsung account to Arlo, and how Arlo works seamlessly with Samsung SmartThings.
Now that you’re set up, you can comfortably control your smart devices via the app. Plus, SmartThings can find efficiencies to make your home safer than ever. Set up simple automations like voice assistant-activated Philips Hue light strips, turn on Wi-Fi enabled smart speakers, or send important security alerts or device status updates right to your phone.
