I am about to install a new lighting system that must be compatible with Smartthings, which comprises several inline controllers.
Two options being considers -
Using Aurora Aone
This looks like a great setup, although the nicely designed kinetic switch is not supported in Smartthings, and neither are some of the features of the rotary dimmer modules.
Using Samotech dimmer switch
I like the Samotech idea as it gives me fliexibilty to use with Hue later on. (I don’t currently have Hue, but can imagine I will add it at some point).
So I have 2 questions for the community:
Does the Samotech Zigbee Dimmer (SM309) effectively do the same thing as an Aurora inline controller?
What would be the benefit of having Samotech controller connected to Hue bridge, and THEN connected to smartthings vs connecting Samotech straight to Smartthings?
Thanks in advance
