Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor Setup and Usage in a Security System
The Samsung SmartThings Arrival Sensor is intended to help you trigger on and off aspects of your Samsung SmartThings security system and/or other parts of automation.
In this video, I’m going to show you how to set up a number of different parts of Samsung SmartThings automation using an arrival sensor to trigger on and off the alarm system.
Initially, I unbox the device and then show you how to set it up. Initially, all you have to do is pull the arrival sensor’s battery protection tag out and then begin the setup in the Samsung SmartThings application on your iPhone or Android.
From there, the setup is relatively simple to get the arrival sensor added as a Thing in SmartThings. After that, the automation of your security system moving to armed and disarmed is a bit trickier.
All in all, the arrival sensor is a useful device, especially if you have children returning home from school.
