I have just received the SmartThings hub and one multipurpose sensor and outlet. My goal is simply voice control for most functions, although eventually I will start using the MP sensor and motion sensors, and even time of day for other activations and deactivations…
I set the Echo, SmartThings hub and the outlet to work with a light. So, turning the light on and off by voice works just fine. Cool.
I also integrated the SmartThings hub and Arol Pro cameras. There doesn’t appear to be a list of commands, and the way the rules are set up, it just lets me know if it detects motion or sound, and sends me a notification on my smart phone. I can turn the two outside camersa off, and I can turn them on.
Frankly, that doesn’t help me. I leave them on all the time, and either view the camera feeds live from time to time, or arm/disarm (but leave them on). I can’t seem to do that from the SmartThings app, much less the Echo, so I think it’s a wash. Thoughts?
I also have a smart Honeywell Thermostat that already is integrated independantly from the SmartThings, so no need to touch that. I have two LiftMaster wifi enabled garage door openers currently managed my MyQ apps, but that doesn’t seem supported.
Also, I’m going to ask the Echo community as well, but when you connect with a SmartThings “device”, what voice commands are available?
Totally confused but I’ll get it eventually.
