Current Device Deals & Best Prices (link to new thread at bottom of thread)

I got one of the GE outdoor plugs pictured above from Lowe’s for $10 . Smartthings hub recognized the device as a switch, but when I turn off\on with lights hooked up nothing is happening.

Any suggestions?

I have had the same experience last year. I hit the on/off button on it couple of times as far as I remember and it started working. Also mine though outside is not that far from the hub with other plugged in zwave devices close by. A zwave repair may be of some help as well as you added a new zwave device.


I just got back from my local Lowes and these products were not marked down but I showed them the picture as if a buddy of mine sent it to me and they matched the price. These items are “non stock items” and the manager wanted them out of the store. Apparently the clearance pricing is up to each store manager so haggle with them.

Same here. Showing regular price but manager okay’d the $10 price at customer service. Thanks for posting these ! Great prices!

They had the dimmer and outdoor at my closest Lowes for regular price. I showed the manager the pic and he wouldn’t budge. Oh Well.

I went to Lowes and bought 4 dimmers at 9 dollars after talking with customer service. I then went to the other Lowe’s in town (6 miles away), and bought four more at $8.10 each (how they keep getting cheaper I don’t know!) Basically i got 8 dimmers for a grand total of $68.40 I love this forum!!!


None of my four Lowe’s will do the price matching. I’d love a few outdoor modules to run our roof heaters this season.

The GE devices are full price at my Lowe’s…no budging. I already have one of the outdoor switches…works fine.

has anyone tried Xiaomi Smart Door and Windows Sensor? will they connect to ST?
they cost only $ 9.48 and they are supposedly Zigbee devices.
door sensor

there’s also a set for $50 with a wireless button, the door sensor, a presence sensor and a hub/light/speaker(doorbell)

The Xioami original line are Zigbee, but not compatible with SmartThings. They use a proprietary encryption layer. They’ll only work with their own controllers.

SmartThings uses the zigbee home automation 1.2 profile (ZHA 1.2) So you want to look for devices that are certified to that.

Good deals at my Lowe’s too. 2 dimmers, 2 outdoor switches, and 2 Nyce tilt sensors for $25. They were all on a 90% off managers special.


Agggh! You guys are making me want to stalk my local Lowes and walk up and down the aisles like a “zombie” looking for fresh blood.


been there, done that lol

Looks like i will have to return the tilt sensors though. They paired but show “open” constantly. Then I read the ST support article that said the Nyce sensors for Iris will not work with ST. It’s a separate Nyce sensor that ST uses.

No such luck at my Lowes in S California, even though the mfg part #'s were identical, they kept insisting that the Lowes item number was different and that this was the new stock. Oh well, you just can’t get good help these days. Maybe I’ll try another Lowes. Too bad that they won’t price match each other.

I went to my local lowes, where I normally but my stuff. The manager was more than happy to help me out. I told him I’d be happy with a lowes gift card (that’s incentive for them). But then he realized that I bought them at the store across town… So, no joy there…

But, he did give me the deal on 2 more dimmers. 20.00 well spent and I’ll go across town tomorrow to see if I can get the rest… I might just return them and rebuy them.

So, total savings so far ~ $60.00.
Potential savings tomorrow ~ $150.00

Thanks @TexAMR

Thank you very much @TexAMR! I bought 14 devices today at $10 each. I had to go to several different locations to get my “loot” but you saved me well over $350. Much appreciate you posting about the sale.

For those of you getting denied on the price match, make sure you ask the manager to look at the details of the item to verify it’s a “non stock” item. This means the item is discontinued and they won’t be getting anymore. I also indicated these are the older models as the managers are aware of the Iris remodel.

Darn, I was soo close. I had eight of these in hand, but was denied. We had to find them up on the high shelfs, in boxes with the item number. When I talked to the manager he explained that he couldn’t discount them, but took my name and number and will get back with me on Monday to see if it could be done after checking with a supplier or something since the were slated to be bought back.

At least now nobody can call me the “enabler”. I have lost that title to you…:wink: if you don’t accept the title then I can retain the “enabler” title but you guys are seriously compulsive buyers! :wink: posted with utmost respect…
