SmartStart location

SmartStart QR code's location as follows: Page 4 - Add Device
The S2 DSK (Device Specific Key) is used to authenticate the included device before exchanging the network keys. You can find DSK in in Hub's detail page at the dashboard.

Add Device
The SmartThings Hub connects all of your smart
devices with one another, the SmartThings cloud,
and the SmartThings mobile app. From the Home
screen, touch the Plus (+) icon and select Add device.
While the Hub searches, perform the
connection/inclusion process specific to that device.

Remove Device
Z-Wave devices require a separate command and
physical confirmation from the device itself (usually
a button press) in order to be reset (or "excluded")
and removed from a controller (like the
SmartThings Hub). Before removing a Z-Wave
device, make sure you’ve uninstalled any
configurations associated with the device. Your Hub
will enter exclude mode automatically when you
remove a Z-Wave device via the Things page. When
prompted, execute the required button press or
exclusion process as outlined by the device's user
guide. Perhaps you're having trouble adding a ZWave
device that was previously in use by a
SmartThings Hub or another type of Z-Wave
controller. Or maybe your new device won’t connect
after several attempts. Sometimes a device partially
connects, or is partially removed, behind the scenes.
Resetting/excluding the device through the
General Z-Wave Device Exclusion in Z-Wave utilities
menu will likely fix these problems. Then, you will
be able to connect the device as usual.

Using the SmartThings Hub as a
Secondary Controller
Because the Hub is a certified Z-Wave device, you
can add it to another Z-Wave network. Note that you
can only add a Hub to a different Z-Wave network if
no Z-Wave devices have been added. Otherwise,
you should remove all Z-Wave devices from the Hub
first by putting them through a device exclusion.
When the SmartThings Hub is used as a secondary
controller on a Z-Wave network, it may not receive
notifications from some battery-operated devices.
SmartThings Technical Support does not provide
assistance to consumers using the Hub with other
Z-Wave central controllers.

Here are the steps to
put the Hub into learn mode to receive network
information from another Z-Wave controller
Prepare the other Z-Wave controller to copy its
network information to the Hub. This may be called
include, add, transfer, shift, copy, or replicate mode.
Add Hub to an existing Z-Wave network in Z-Wave
Utilities menu will start learn mode on the Hub.

Factory reset Link

Z-Wave factory reset
To reset your Hub's Z-Wave system to factory
default settings, you must factory reset the entire
Hub. You can factory reset your Hub with Remove
Device menu in SmartThings mobile app.
NOTE : Resetting the Hub will restore factory
settings. All device connections, automations, rules,
configurations associated with that Hub will be lost
in the reset. All devices connected to your Hub will
have to be reset or excluded before they can be
reconnected. The steps for resetting and
reconnecting each smart device differ. After
resetting, you can visit our Things category, find the
devices you wish to set up, and follow the guides
provided. Remember that you will likely need to
reset or “exclude” every device before connecting.
