What's New with the Developer Workspace?

Tech Tips · 2019/03/27

SmartThings is thrilled to announce our new look and feel to our Developer Workspace .

The Developer Workspace is now more intuitive and easier to use. You will be able to find the tools you need to integrate your IoT products and automations into the ever expanding SmartThings ecosystem.

We improved the space by redesigning the flows for creating, testing, and publishing device integrations and Automations. Live logging is also included and accessible through individual developer created projects.

It is now easier to create cloud connected devices, automations as well as external applications. We have also included a simplified experience in creating device profiles, publishing your devices and creating brands.

Here is a sneak peek into our new developer experience:

  1. You can track and view all your projects in one place through the project view.
    When you first login to the developer workspace, the project view will appear which will provide you with a list of your devices and automations you have previously created.

  2. After selecting a new project, you can choose “Device Integration” or “Automation for the SmartThings App”

For step by step instructions on implementing a cloud connected device or creating an automation, check out our Developer Workspace section of our Documentation page. Here, we have provided the flows for you in detail with screenshots to help you navigate through the implementation process.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Fabiola and David from our SmartThings Developer Support Team for one on one support. Feel free to provide us with feedback on your experience!

The number of developers and users on our platform is growing….thanks in part to our focus on what you need. Our number one priority will always be to enhance the developer experience and simplify implementation efforts. We are committed to your success.
