STIHL connected is an innovative way to keep track of your tools and manage all of the maintenance and servicing of each tool quickly and easily. To take advantage of our connected technology, our Smart Connectors are designed to be mounted on your tools and will record run times, sending the data to our STIHL connected app via Bluetooth(R). STIHL connected can be used in two different ways depending on whether you are using your tools in a professional capacity or in your own garden.
STIHL connected for home gardeners
If you are a keen home gardener, attaching a smart connector to your garden tools means you can quickly open the connected app and see when the next service is due at a glance, as it automatically gives you the machine's service schedule. There's no need to look back at the Instruction Manual and it will put you directly in touch with a STIHL Approved Dealer to arrange a service. It's a useful record of the serial numbers of your tools and you can even attach the connectors to non-STIHL tools to see run times too.
STIHL connected for professionals
The workplace is where STIHL connected comes into its own. Simply use the smart connectors alongside the connected Pro Portal and you have a full digital record of your entire fleet of tools. This is really useful for servicing and maintenance but it also means you can see exactly which tools are used when and for how long. This is really useful when looking to replace tools as well. Plus you can see which tools are nearby at the end of the day - handy if you want to make sure all the tools have been returned to the depot!
Please note that if you have any of the following AP System professional battery tools, you'll need to use the Smart Connector 2A: MSA 300 Chainsaw, BGA 300 blower, KMA 135 R Kombi tool, HLA 135 long reach hedgetrimmer, FSA 135 and FSA 135 R brushcutters, HTA 135 pole pruner, HSA 130 R and HSA 130 T hedge trimmers or the RGA 140 brushcutter. These tools are not compatible with the standard Smart Connector and can only be used with the Smart Connector 2A. Find out more about the Smart Connector 2A here.
Whether you are a home gardener or a professional with a whole fleet of tools, STIHL connected makes tool management and maintenance easy.
FAQsQHow do you use STIHL connected?
A: It's very simple. First, download the STIHL Connected App on iOS or Google Play and sign up for an account. Next, open the app and get your machines set up. You will be asked what product you want to connect. For some newer STIHL products, you will be able to connect them by scanning the QR code on the machine.

Once again for most new STIHL products, you will be shown how to do this with a model-specific video in the app. If there isn’t a video, the Smart Connector should be installed anywhere where there is an electrical current that the sensor can detect. Now your product should be set up on the app.QWhat can I see on the app?
