How to Use your Amazon Firestick to Control Samsung SmartThings

Updated: Apr 21


You can easily control your Samsung SmartThings devices with your Amazon Fire TV Stick or an Amazon Echo Dot. In this video blog I demonstrate how I am able to operate my automated smart garage door which is equipped with just two z-wave devices, (a momentary switch and a tilt sensor). I am also able to automate my front porch lights and adjust the brightness of the lights. Finally I also use the Fire Stick to request information about the temperature in various rooms as well as confirm that doors are closed. This is all possible using the capabilities of my Smartthings Multipurpose sensors. Pretty Cool!


I also feature my Amcrest Camera system. You can access the 6 Part Camera Security System blog here or, if you prefer, you can view the 6 part video series here
