I got my Amazon Echo delivered yesterday. I love it!
I got it integrated with my Hue Lighting straight away and then my SmartThings. I have to ask the question though, why did SmartThings even bother? I can’t actually do anything productive with my ST integration at all.
I can turn on my lights with ST… but hang on, I can do this with Hue. So if I use ST, I am doing three hops, from Alexa, to ST and the Hue; when I could just do two - Alexa to Hue.
I was expecting so much more from SmartThings such as being able to query the state of my ST Multi Sensors, get their temperature, their open or closed state and more.
Are there any plans to implement such changes?
