I tried all options, but SmartThings wouldn’t see the switch directly. I caved in and bought the hub. Then discovered the iOS app version is faulty… won’t connect the Kyla hub to my WiFi. Borrowed an Android phone from a friend and that connected the hub to my WiFi just fine. Did rest of zigBee setup on iPhone app no problem. To be fair, tech support in Singapore were on the ball and got back to my emails in just an hour or so.
The switch is very smart on the wall. Optional supplied capacitor wasn’t needed for my lights. Enough leakage through 6 leds to keep it happy. Also pair of wall lights don’t flicker either. Happy to use over priced hub for now, until SmartThings or a helpful coder supports it.
Let me say again the wall switch is very smart looking and worth the hassle of the extra hub. I’ll be buying two more dual switches shortly.
As an aside, Lidl are selling zigbee smart outlets for £7.99. SmartThings sees those directly! Just search using Generic Z-Wave… yeah I know!
