Where is the switch for the flood light?

I’m using Lightify Floods (outdoor rated) - they are working great

Got them at amazon http://amzn.to/2qTJWXx

No other app needed - native support to SmartThings and therefore Google should be able to voice control them :slight_smile:

If you are running a new power cable to the lamp and using a plug socket somewhere to power the lamp just add a power pocket socket that is zwave, that way you can install an energy efficient 30w led floodlight and have control of on off from the power socket in st

Just depends on how you are getting the power to the light

just got ST to control my 6 outdoor floodlights last night - dumb LED bulbs on a single circuit with a Lutron Caseta dimmer switch. I have connected the switch as a device in ST and buried the Lutron app in a folder that I will never open.

Outside lights now work in various automations in ST, including dimming for the wee hours, with the added bonus of redundant, independent control via the Lutron app and Google Home if I ever become sufficiently disenchanted with SmartThings.


Also want to install flood lights for burglary prevention. Is it possible to control a regular outdoor armature/light including movement sensor and lux setting through a xiamo smart plug? (Sunset, notifications etc…)
Or is it better/easier to buy a Wemo Zigbee bulb connected with the ST hub.
