Support for TCP Light Bulbs to Be Discontinued

As of June 30, 2016, TCP Light Bulbs will no longer work with SmartThings.

On June 30, 2016, TCP will discontinue access to their cloud services, which is what SmartThings uses to integrate TCP with our platform. For more details on the changes to the TCP support model, see their product update here. Sadly, TCP Connected Smart LED Bulbs will no longer work with SmartThings and will be removed from SmartThings Labs as of the deprecation date.

For more information on removing your TCP Light Bulbs from your SmartThings setup, follow the instructions on our Support page.

    wait does this mean all of the cree connected bulbs i have spent hundreds on won’t work out of nowhere? i really hope not i am happy with my setup.

    • TCP is a brand unrelated to Cree. TCP bulbs are ones that require their own gateway or hub.

      Where does it say Cree?

    This is why IoT scares the crap out of me. The fact that on a whim (or company purchase/closure), hardware that is otherwise perfectly operable will cease to function due to lack of support. Google did the same thing with “Revolv”.

    It sucks that they (Connected by TCP) axed support. I tried reaching out to their support team and got nothing. I have in my spare time been working on a web interface to mimick the application and functionality they killed.

    It’s on GitHub, https://github.com/bren1818/TCPLightingWebInterface
