The Basics The Samsung SmartThings Smart Bulb is a ZigBee smart light that allows dimming control. It connects primarily through a Samsung SmartThings Hub (though this guide could deal with other connections in the future) and allows you to set up automations based on other equipment connected to your SmartThings Hub.
