SmartRules lets you easily create rules for SmartThings, so you can finally make your smart home smart! No more struggling to search through the published SmartApps to find something that meets your needs, or worse yet, trying to write the code yourself. With SmartRules, you just specify what should happen, when, and it does the rest.

Want to turn on a light when motion is detected outside, it's after sunset and you're not home? No problem!

Want to unlock the door when you arrive home, but only if there's a leak in your basement? Strange, but you can do it!

Define a trigger, set some conditions, and specify the actions to take. Your devices are all organized and easy to work with.

You can also quickly trigger rules with QuickTap. Add SmartRules to your Today Screen, and to your Apple Watch and quickly trigger a rule with a quick tap! Just add the "QuickTap" trigger to any rule, and it will show up in both of these convenient places.

Worked as Described

Worked great for me. Allowed me to write a rule that ST would not allow me to do. Very pleased so far.

Apple Watch functionality does not work

No response from the developers, despite submitting a ticket on Nov 23rd. Is this app still supported?

Great developers

I’ve been using this app for a long time, it’s really improved over the years. It deals with him a lot of issues that Smartthings app doesn’t bother with. The interface is logical and simple, if only all of my acquaintances could be!
I use it for more complicated things like turning fans off and on based on temperatures inside and outside at certain times of day and something as simple as overriding all of Smartthings routines for the low-voltage light out front: “if low-voltage lights turn off, turn back on” which smart rules it’s easy to enable and disable, for when we’re working in the yard at night. The low voltage is controlled by multiple timers and motion sensors that’s start timer to turn off in a few minutes, that would take too long to deactivate, one to time.
To the developers, keep up the good work!
