New Compatible Devices
We’re excited to announce that five new devices are now compatible with the SmartThings open platform.
Each of these new devices will now appear in the SmartThings app under the Things category of SmartSetup. To connect them to your SmartThings Hub and account, simply tap “Connect New Device” in SmartSetup.
Recently named one of the world’s 50-most innovative companies by Fast Company, Cree’s connected LED bulb can be now automated, controlled, and monitored directly from the SmartThings app.
The bulb has an estimated yearly cost of only $1.27, and will save homeowners and renters an average of $127 on electricity bills during its 25,000-hour lifetime. Best of all, with a cost of $14.97 at most Home Depot stores, the Connected Cree LED Bulb is just about the most affordable smart bulb on the market.
The Fibaro Motion sensor is a Z-Wave device that will notify SmartThings customers whenever there’s unexpected motion in their home, while also monitoring temperature, light, and acceleration.
The device features an LED indicator on the front, and can illuminate different colors depending on whether motion or acceleration is detected. With a diameter of just 44-millimeters, its small size and sleek white frame will simultaneously blend in to the background of your home, while also keeping an eye on it.
The Fibaro Door/Window sensor is a SmartThings-compatible Z-Wave device that can send you a notification when a door, window, cabinet, safe, garage door, or other object is opened or closed.
By integrating the Fibaro Door/Window sensor with your SmartThings setup, you can do things like know when kids come home from school and automatically turn on the lights, be alerted if there’s unexpected entry in your home and trigger an alarm to blare, secure dangerous or off-limit areas of your home like cleaning supply cabinets, and gain peace of mind by knowing when people come and go.
The Fibaro Flood sensor is a SmartThings-compatible Z-Wave device that can detect water and send you an immediate alert on your smartphone if moisture is detected where it doesn’t belong. It can also measure temperature and send you notifications if the temperature rises above or drops below a certain level.
By integrating the Fibaro Flood sensor with SmartThings, you can do things like automatically shut off a water valve if there’s a leak, ring an alarm to notify you of a little water before it becomes a big problem, or automatically turn on a space heater or window A/C unit in response to unexpectedly hot or cold temperatures in areas of your home like a basement or study.
The WeMo Smart LED Bulb is a SmartThings-compatible ZigBee bulb that can be connected directly to your SmartThings Hub without the need for the WeMo Link bridge. In addition to being able to turn your lights on and off remotely, you can also dim and brighten this bulb.
SmartThings customers can turn their WeMo lights on and off from anywhere to make it look like they’re home, adjust them to set the mood, or automate them to come on and off at set times or when different events occur (such as a person arriving home or motion ceasing in a room).
The WeMo Smart LED bulb has an average annual cost of just $1.14 and an average life expectancy of 23 years–so you may want to include it in your will.
Here is a list of all products that have been tested by SmartThings and verified as compatible.
Good news on the Cree Connected Bulb (and all the rest). I spent a few hours last weekend NOT getting mine to work.
I was curious how well they worked — and if they created a mesh network like Hue bulbs do.
FWIW, the GE Zigbee lamps work fine for me. I don’t know if they have created a mesh network — how can I tell?
Not sure, other than does the bulb work even when all the way across the house?
Yes, they do, but the house is in San Francisco so it’s fairly tiny.
Stay away from Zigbee devices with SmartThings. They will work one day and quit working for the next month. ST support told me even low temps affect them.
Agree, I’ve had ongoing nightmares with my GE zigbee bulbs. Fortunately they were cheap enough that I didn’t feel awful just using them as “dumb” bulbs, but they will eventually get replaced with something else.
I tried all sorts of suggestions last night to get my Cree bulbs to work with ST. I even tried to get the Hue hub to see it, which apparently works, but no luck.
This is great, but we really need more camera support besides Dropcam!
Agreed. Foscam really needs to step up their game, chill on the the IP cam stuff, and join the wonderful world of home automation!
Curious, why would you want to integrate the camera into ST? My Trendnet cameras record 24/7, because they’re meant for security.
Perhaps you are trying to access more-intelligent alerts based on movement, facial recognition, or other aspects? I can’t imagine very many use-cases where I’d want ST to control the actual recording.
Good but I agree with other users focus on IP cameras and other categories not supported previously or fully. The connected light bulb is good- ge connected bulb works ok but requires developer code to work right. Get working with the big boys like Nest thermostat.
Can the smartthings hub connect directly to a cree bulb or do you still the the cree hub?
According to the Cree page on Home Depot’s web site, it can connect directly to the ST hub, (any ZigBee hub.) The question still remains whether they create a mesh network, and what level of functionality can be had via ST.
Though now that I’ve bought a pair, I cannot get them to work with ST.
SmartThings real problem with Zigbee is they have the ST Hub locked at Wifi channel 14 and it can’t be changed. The Hue hub works on Zigbee and can be changed to a range of channels to avoid interference with other devices and neighbors devices.
Last night I was able to get the Cree bulbs paired to my Hue bridge, but that’s a pain because then I have to delete my Hue setup completely in ST before the new bulbs appear. Supposedly that but was anyway fixed some time ago, but not in my case. Latest firmware.
I just put a Cree bulb in a lamp and can easily control it with the Smartthings hub.
