One of the most important questions when you’re shopping for a smart home hub is “Will it work with my devices?” The 3rd generation Samsung SmartThings Hub earned our top pick because more often than not, the answer to that question was “yes” with this hub.
It works with Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It’s a little bit cheaper than its past versions because it doesn’t have a backup battery, and the cloud-to-cloud protocols require less memory space. Also, you don’t need to connect it to your router using a cable, so you can put it pretty much anywhere.
