Thank you for your help JD!
You might also find the following topic of interest. One of the big advantage of ST is that you can use either zwave or zigbee:
I was looking for a replacement to my sprinkler system when I stumbled across this.
and it looks like they have already published their api
has anybody else looked at this one ?
I also found this…
which looks like a great way to replace the guts of my old controller with an upgrade.
+1 for Doorbell. A cheap pushbutton doorbell would be awesome.
The $49.95 Aeon Doorbell (zwave) works well with SmartThings using community created code. It can play multiple different MP3s. I doubt if you’ll find anything much cheaper.
You can also take any existing nonnetworked wired doorbell and run the wires through the wall to a Z wave contact sensor and use that to notify the hub. Then you still need something to play the sounds, but there are a lot of options there.
Now that’s a great idea! $50 is steep for something I just want to be a switch. Now I wish we could finally integrate with RING.
Centralite now sells some stuff with their own brand attached (instead of PEQ, SmartThings, etc.?).
I think this device below would be a great addition to the SmartThings family…
A repeater with a built-in multicolored night light!
Alas… it is not listed on the “Shop Now” page, but perhaps some branded version is available.
A Zigbee Night Light…that’s so cool, its just begging for some fun:
A jar with a few zig-bees and fire-fly’s and…
Yes, integrating with Ring would be fantastic. Also Kuna which has an amazing porch light/video cam/audio/siren unit. I have 2 in my back yard, and a Ring at the front door.
As well, I really hope you jump on Eight Sleep (formerly Luna Sleep) as an integrated sleep tracker.
Devices I’ve been looking for integrations too are as follows; Nest (I know ST and Nest don’t see eye to eye), Ring, Garageio, and Rachio. It’s clear that business objectives are getting in the way of progress as these integrations have been requested for going on 2 years now.
Just an update about Eight Sleep. This is from their update last night, so good news. Hope that means good things for SmartThings, but I really don’t know how that all works.
OPEN API AND DEVELOPER DOCUMENTATION
We are finalizing the documentation and interface of our open API. This API will give developers the ability to receive sleep metrics and control the device - just like our app does. The release of this API is planned for the end of September. Backers who purchased the Developer pack will be the first to receive access to all the documentation.
I admit to being very biased here since my Eight Matress Cover/Sleep Tracker will arrive in October. I can’t wait to have it shut off al the lights when both of us crawl into bed, and set off the morning routines when one of us gets out.
If things don’t happen with ST right away, at least there will be some very basic options, as they also included this in the update.
We are planning to release our IFTTT channel in a couple of weeks.These are the events that we are including in the first implementation:
- One user gets in bed
- Both users get in bed
- One user gets out of bed
- Both users get out of bed
Any word on the samsung sleep sensor? I just a motion sensor “under” the bed that senses when my leg is thrown over anytime after 5:30AM - turn on coffee ! Hope that works with split mattress beds (they are nice !)
Echo Dot is much better if you want to stream audio as the echo won’t do that…
Sure it does. I’m streaming audio to my echo from my iphone right now with spotify connect. And it can do bluetooth too.
He means the other way around, you can’t stream from the Echo to another set of speakers.
I see. Had to go back like a year and a half to see what that referred to. Wish ST had some more active moderation on this forum.
Yes, you can stream to the echo. But you can’t send audio to say a Blumoo and connect to your stereo system. I prefer to use my Bose surround sound system over the sound of Echo’s one speaker. Audio Streaming to my stereo is not an option with Echo. Only the Echo Dot streams bluetooth.
An adapter that connects to Multi Channel Security Camera systems with PTZ controls ( Pan / Tilt / Zoom)
Smart Things app for both Samsung Tablets and Amazon Fire
An Adapter that connects ST to any Smart TV and have it as a background app.
Something like the Aeon Door bell but able to trigger other speakers to increase the sound and work with lights.
I would love to be able to integrate my Trane Comfort Link thermostate
