New Item in the SmartThings Shop
Don’t let the name fool you, the latest addition to the SmartThings Shop packs a lot of power: the Aeon Labs Z-Wave Minimote.
With four buttons that can control up to eight “events,” the Minimote acts as an additional remote to control the connected items in your home. This means that you can give spouses, kids, or guests the power to turn things like lights, speakers, locks, and other electronics on and off without having to hand them your smartphone.
Here’s a quick video showing where you’ll find the Minimote in the new SmartThings app experience:
Similar to the integration we announced last week with the UP24 by Jawbone, the SmartThings Minimote integration can also trigger Hello, Home phrases and prompt multiple actions to occur with a push of a button. So lay back and let that smartphone charge in the living room–simply tap a button on your Minimote to turn off all of your lights, set your thermostat, and lock the door as you go to bed each night.
