I had been patiently waiting for Fibaro to start adding more of their devices to the platform such us RGBW and updateding their existing ones as they appear to be in the platform for a very long time without any real update. Finally i though i should stop waiting and took the plunge into sending them an email regarding their device handlers on Smartthings. Funnily enough this is the response i got:
Hi, i am contacting you regarding the Smartthings platform. I understand that a few months back, Fibaro and Smartthings made a collaboration by supporting each others devices on your platforms. The fibaro experience however on Smartthings has not changed. I am a long term user on your single/ double switch 2, rgbw and door sensor devices, and would like to expand those devices throughtout my house. However due to the fact that the device handlers (software) being used in Smartthings are very old, i am stuck using device handlers that are executing in the cloud and are very slow to respond… i would like to request as you create new device handlers through Samsung’s s Smartthings new open sdk in order to improve the performance of your devices on the Smartthings platform. This is an issue many people are dealing with and have been waiting for years to be resolved.
Please make this happen
Thank you for your message,
Device handlers are not provided by FIBARO. It was created by a software developer that we’ve cooperated with in the past. For now, we are just providing working device handlers on our site and unfortunately we cannot provide you new handlers. If you have knowledge in programming you can create such integration by yourself or if you don’t - you can find what you are looking for here: community.smartthings.com/. SmartThings users are very helpful and they are sharing their work on the forums like this one.
Apparently they don’t care about Smartthings or any other platform except for their own. The only thing i want is to get the Fibaro Double & Single switch 2 devices to run locally. Apparently this is not happening any time soon. I think i have had it with Smartthings and Fibaro… Time for a change!
