Subscriptions: although our iOS and Android app will initially be free, we are currently exploring the opportunities to receive a reoccurring revenue via a £1 monthly app subscription for particular features,.
Despite being asked, there’s no confirmation that they’ll be ST compatible - just Echo and Google Home. The subscription comment suggests they might require their own hub…
Edit to ADD: It looks like a no-go for ST. Another company trying to lock you into their own eco-system. No thanks
Den Hey Peter. Den products only work with the Den hub, they need familiar face
the manufacturer isn’t going to admit their products work with ST if they are also selling a hub solution. it will all come down to the zigbee protocol used. i haven’t yet found a bit of IOT tech that can’t be somehow integrated into ST. I’m hopeful den will be the solution to the distinct lack of UK IOT light switches and dimmers.
I really hope it is supported by ST. I want home automation, not remote control and really don’t want another hub or to connect to IFTTT or any online services for the matter to turn my heater on when I arrive home.
No, no API (yet) and no ST integration. The system works well in its own isolated way though. Mostly positive except…
I have some RF range issues. Only the sockets are repeaters, not the light switches. It’s too expensive for me to replace a lot of sockets to get house coverage. The product costs a lot more than the original suggestion.
As they change state they really do klunk loudly.
Light switches work but don’t report state correctly on 3way + switching circuits. On 2 way you need two Den switches for correct status reporting. Technically they could, and should, have avoided this.
