I am close to moving over from Vera (2) to ST v2. I have been combing the forums for information and I think I have a handle on what ST v2 can do. Local control is key for me which is why I didn’t buy V1. With that said I have the following devices with my Vera
- GE Link Lights (and Wink Hub) (zigbee)
- GE Jasco in wall switch (zwave)
- Several Zwave door sensors
- GE Outdoor Plug (zwave)
- Foscam Cams SD and HD (wifi)
- Garage sensor (zwave)
- Astak Mole Camera
- Wemo Motion Sensor
- Wemo Switches
I am sure most of the devices are compatible via the market (except for Astak Mole). What I do not know is what is the range on the Smartthings zwave and zigbee radios. I ask this because I have an outdoor light that is more than 30 ft from Vera and vera cannot communicate with it even though I have a mesh device between it. Will I have the same issue?
The other question I had was integrating the cameras with dropbox or a similar service. There is a plugin that saves all photos and videos from the cameras from vera to dropbox. This allows me to store the images in my account and view them if I need to. Also, it is set off with motion sensors in the camera. Does ST have anything similar?
Thank you in advance.
