Once connected, the Harmony Hub will show up in the Things list in the SmartThings mobile app.

  • After that, there is a one time set up process for each harmony activity that you wish to trigger from SmartThings, using the official "Harmony Trigger Smartapp" found in the Marketplace section of the SmartThings mobile app. For some accounts, this smartapp will be named "Harmony Control" (not "Harmony Connect") instead. Just use whichever one is available to you.

Once created, each Harmony trigger will be listed on the smartapps list in the Rooms section of the official SmartThings mobile app.
