I have about a dozen Geekbes and other plugs which I purchased and use through IFTTT to Smartthings. Due to the recent changes with IFTTT and only allowing 3 applets without a monthly payment, I am looking at my options.
I saw that Smartthings is supposed to support Global for use with the plugs so I tried to move the plug to Global and then use the add in Smartthings to make the plug accessible in Smartthings. I could control the device in the global app but nothing got added in Smartthings when I added the device. Does this really work?
I then thought of replacing the plugs with new ones (maybe TP link HS103 or Meross MSS110. Anyone have thoughts? I didn’t mind using IFTTT and creating the virtual devices but I am only using this for lights and fans so I am not doing anything fancy and when IFTTT goes to $10 a month next year I would be a waste of money to pay for their service.
