I have a mixture of different branded bulbs, mostly hive bulbs that I have managed to connect directly to the SmartThings Hub without having to use the hive (connect) Smartapp. I just put the devices into pairing mode and because they are standard Zigbee bulbs they add with no issues. This gives me the obvious benefit of being able to run them locally rather than cloud.
I have two TP-Link bulbs, KL50 and KL130b, ad at the minute I have them connected using a cloud connection. Does anyone know if I am able to add them locally just like I have with my hive bulbs?
These two bulbs have quite a bit of automation attached to them, and I am happy to update all the automation if I can get them to run locally, however I don’t want to remove them, try add them locally, fail, then still have to update all the automation when I have to add them back the way they are already connected.
Anyone been successful in getting TP-Link bulbs to run locally?
Its worth pointing out that I have both the ST V3 and wifi hubs connected.
