My husband and I had fun setting this up. I learned a lot and still learning too. I can't wait to get everything available connected. We had spots in our house where the wifi had weaker signal and this helped pull it in. We even get wi-fi in the garage now. Who knew all that this hub would work do well. The different items I own were easy to connect to the hub easily. I love that I can use my phone and monitor things, it makes it very easy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The SmartThings Hub prevents it from 1 star
As a hub, I can't complain with it. The big issue is that the plugs are poorly labeled in the app. All the plugs connect without much issue once you figure out which is which. Now as for Wi-Fi....oh boy is it horrible. Signal strength is mediocre. Can go past 2 walls and already there is barely anything left. A single unit can BARELY cover a 600 sq.ft. apartment. Now the major culprit i found is Plume. That service is horrendous. The AI must have barely passed pre-k. There is 0 customization. Pretty much every other dual signal router can let you limit to which band to use, 2.4 or 5 GHz. Here? It will flip flop you on a whim and screw you over. If you have it set to bridge mode, as I do since I have a gigabit network switch, your options are further limited to basically seeing what is connected. I am upstairs in new apartment and my computer one second says 4 bar strength with over 100 MBps connection, next it says 2 with 3 bar strength. Samsung really needs to get rid of Plume. It hinders what could be a super competitor in the Wi-Fi/hub space. Even the most basic of consumer routers have some amount of granular control. As is, I would only recommend this item if you are on a budget and want the router and hub combo. Once I am settled out of school and in a house, I will disable the Wi-Fi aspect of this thing and use it only as a SmartThings hub which is what it does best.

Get connected!!!

My husband and I had fun setting this up. I learned a lot and still learning too. I can't wait to get everything available connected.

We had spots in our house where the wifi had weaker signal and this helped pull it in. We even get wi-fi in the garage now. Who knew all that this hub would work do well.

The different items I own were easy to connect to the hub easily. I love that I can use my phone and monitor things, it makes it very easy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Total Home Coverage

This item was purchased a couple of days ago with the intent to provide wifi coverage in areas with spotty performance or dead zones. Once set up, no devices were dropped and picked up the signal without any issues. It was used to hook up streaming devices. It was so easy to hookup. Why did I wait this long? Highly recommended.

Finally Peace of Mind

We had a long stay away from home due to family illness. I was so nervous as this would be the first time leaving my absentminded professor home alone. But this 3 pack ran my house like a well oil machine. I had easy access to all my lights, thermostat, door locks, even security camera. Best Peace of Mind [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great product

This is a great product for home or office it has the hub and great for use with all other smart devices.I loved the ease of installing this product and it works great.easy to connect to all household items [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Excellent signal strength

I switched my Google WiFi for these to add the hub function with minimum hardware. The hub works great and haven't had any issues at all. I was expecting a decreased WiFi signal and I was pleasantly surprised to see a stronger signal throughout my house. I wish you can control all of the functions of the router with one app but I'm satisfied that you can control the advanced features even if it takes two apps. For basic functionality, the SmartThings app works fine. I highly recommend.

Great way to expand WiFi throughout the house.

I needed a solution that not only expanded my WiFi coverage throughout my home, but added Samsung SmartThings support to integrate smart switches, dimmers, hue lights and alarm system. Installation was quick and straight forward, and I could quickly see a performance increase across my devices. Internet access on iPads, Roku, and laptops are smooth with no lag. Very satisfied. I would have loved if the ethernet ports supported POE to avoid the need for the separate power adapters, but overall a great product.

Upgraded existing router

I replaced a netgear router with this system. I was able to place two hubs in the house and a separate one in my garage. I no longer have dead spots. My wifi works as it should. I'm happy with my purchase. I bought these for the flexibility of building my smart home. I have several Samsung products and have been happy with the simplicity in how they operate. I connected each of my hubs to an ethernet cable to improve the backhaul connection it works well this way the main hub is connected to a ethernet switch and the other two come off this switch allowing me to place the hubs further apart. Increased my wifi signal.

A Mesh Network System for Better Wi-Fi Signal

Our lot is home to 2 houses - one large 3 bedroom, 3 bath home that's about 2300 square feet, and a 1 bedroom, 1 bath casita. The 2 are about 20 feet apart at their closest and this has presented some problems with network connectivity. We use cable broadband 100Mb/s service and we are frequent streamers with Netflix, Prime, KODI, and On-Demand used daily. Our existing router, being located about dead center of our homes, still would only give 3-4 bars of signal to roughly half of our devices. We decided to invest in Samsung's Connect Home System which comes with 3 hubs. I connected the main one via Cat 6 cable to our ASUS router and located it as high in the room as possible. I installed the second hub inside the casita and then the third hub installed in a bedroom of the large house, farthest from the room where our service is located. Installation of this system involved downloading an app to my smartphone, which detected each hub as I installed them. This process was very easy and required no networking skill. Start to finish it took me about 20 minutes to install all 3 hubs. I tested the system at many different spots in both houses, using multiple devices at each spot. The signal was maxed at 5 bars no matter the device or location, including our front and back yards. We have been using this system now for about 3 weeks and it has functioned flawlessly for us, even when relatives visited. I am quite pleased with the System and it works very well for us, needing no maintenance or attention. I feel that the price of the system is worth having max signal across our lot and a network that needs no maintenance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Plume is horrible. Keeps cutting out during prime

Really, Plume is the worst. My hub doesnt switch bad quality connections, and when it does switch, the delay is huge. I can't walk around my home on the phone without huge drop times.

Also, my system just drops for whatever plume is doing. Even during major hours.

This is the only system that can scale. But it has a lot of growing up to do
