Disabling device discovery

In Konnected 2.2.1 a setting was introduced that allows you to turn off device discovery on the device. If device discovery is turned off, the Konnected device will not respond to discovery requests from your hub or other devices on the network.

You may want to disable discovery for a few reasons:

  • It improves security by making the Konnected devices undiscoverable to others on the network.
  • It reduces load on the device itself, potentially improving performance and reliability.

SmartThings only (for now)

You can only disable discovery if using SmartThings at this time. This is because the Home Assistant component must re-discover after every reboot. We're working on ways around this.

First create a static IP address

Important! Create a static IP address reservation for each of your Konnected devices before disabling device discovery using your router's DHCP configuration. It's best to keep the same IP address that was automatically assigned initially to the device. This ensures that the IP address of the Konnected device never changes.

Disable device discovery

Using the SmartThings mobile app, launch the Konnected (Connect) SmartApp, tap on the desired device, tap Next, scroll down and turn off the toggle for Enable device discovery. Tap Save to sync the setting to the device. The Konnected device will then reboot and will no longer respond to discovery calls.
