We gave the Samsung SmartThings Starter Kit a 4/5 score at a review price of £199, praising the simple-to-use app, the incredible flexibility of the system, and the powerful developer community supporting the ecosystem.

Here’s our verdict: “SmartThings is a brilliant system that should form the backbone of most smart homes. Its excellent automation, wide range of compatible devices and Alexa support truly make it the most flexible smart home system that I’ve used. Given its capabilities, it’s incredibly well-priced, especially considering that the Hub supports Z-Wave, Zigbee and custom apps – a Z-Wave hub alone costs a similar amount.”
