Have alook over to europe for 220v things - thats all I can say - I’m though not sure if the things actuslly are fixed or multivoltage 110/220 capable which is more likely these days but the specs dont say on the samsung website …
Hi I’m in the same situation than Roberto. Z wave fraq es the asme here as US but 220 v. So very difficult to find 220v thing compatible.
Does anyone know lights with adjustable voltage from 110-240V? Like it is the hub? Also does any one know if exist swtiches with regulable voltage?
Does anyone know if smartthing hub is compatible with Milight? That light has adjustable voltage and works fine in 220v.
Hi @esteban1193 , I’m living in Asia and my country uses AC 220v, 50Hz. I’m going to buy a SmartThings hub and some Aeon Labs’ Dimmers but I’m getting lost in choosing which devices are supported in my country . Could you give me any advice? I dont know which SmartThings hub ( an US or EU version) and what kind of Aeon labs dimmers to buy . If possible , pls let me know the model number of Aeon labs dimmers or give me the links . Thanks you in advance
Besides the voltage you need to check the Zwave frequency they use in your country.
Frequency in MHz Used in
868.42 ; 869.85 Europe
868.4 China, Korea
908.4 ; 916.0 USA
915.0 - 926.0 Israel
919.8 Hong Kong
921.4 ; 919.8 Australia, New Zealand
922.0 - 926.0 Japan
In my case, Ilive in Israel but I bought all my hub and things in the US and I am using only their things because they are cheaper and there is a much larger variety.
you cant mix them. (you can use zigbee or wifi) but nost of the connected things are in Zwave protocol.
Aeon labs has most oof their stuff for 220v - but for the dimmer you;ll need to check the hz 50 or 60.
About the US Hub , I can easily use an adapter to change the voltage but I
can hardly find an Aeon Dimmer which uses 220V 50Hz and US zwave frequency.
Could you pls recommend me a specific one? ( if possible, pls give me its
model name or a link)
About Philips Hue , it only supports 110V ( in its catalog) and by the way,
can it directly connect to SmartThings Hub without using any bridge?
Hope to hear from you soon.
Phillips makes different models of their bulbs. Some will work with 110 V only, some will work with 220. The 220v models are sold in both the South American and the EU markets, so you just have to find a source for the ones that will work with your voltage.
It is best to use them with the hue bridge. While it is technically possible to connect a Hue bulb directly to the smartthings hub, it can cause problems with the zigbee network. Using them with the Hue bridge is the only officially supported method.
I only have z-wave devices connected to SmartThings hub, nothing directly to wifi on 2.4GHz, so should that be ok? Also, some reviewers mentioned that some A19 Philips Hue bulbs, even though they show as 110V compatible, they are in fact compatible with 220V as well. Thank you for your reply.
It’s up to you, but again, the only officially supported method is using the hue bridge.
As far as individual reviewers who say that the bulbs work with 220, the fact that they put the bulb in the socket and it didn’t explode doesn’t mean that it is “working well.” You could still reduce the life of the bulb, it could react badly to a power surge, etc. and the company will not honor the warranty if you use it with the wrong voltage.
The fact that the manufacturer tells you not to use that bulb with that voltage should be enough information.
Hi! The philips Hue bulbs cannot connect directly to ST hub. It need a Hue
Bridge to work. I bought a Hue bridge and a ST hub, they function very
well. If you only use automation to control lights, I recommend that you
should only buy Philips Hue bulbs and bridge and its own motion sensor, you
dont need a ST hub
