The IKEA Tradfri bulbs work well with SmartThings and are much less expensive than Hue if purchased directly from IKEA. (Don’t buy them from Amazon, they will cost almost twice as much.)
The white only bulbs will work just fine. The Colour bulbs which are available in some countries sometimes have some odd colour renderings, but that can usually be fixed with custom code.
The plug-in pocket socket in the tradfri line also works well with SmartThings, but the handheld buttons and dimmers and remotes don’t, so don’t bother buying those if you are looking for a SmartThings solution.
Bought the Tradfri color bulb and ST has no problem detecting it as ZLL RGB Bulb. Also bought another white bulb with round dimmer (p/n 603.569.45) thought that it was similar to the color one. I was wrong. Going to return it and get other model (903.742.69) instead.
The listing for this bulb says compatible with Smartthings but then it also states “Compatible with Zigbee Light Link(ZLL) and standard Zigbee 3.0 protocol”. So I’m confused - I’ve seen @JDRoberts comment about ST using ZHA and not ZLL which means I’d need something like the hue bridge to add this bulb to ST. Can anyone help clarify?
Probably an old post. Smartthings originally only supported the ZHA profile. And that was true for five years. Then in 2019 they added Zigbee 3.0 support to the V3 hub, and eventually to the V2 hub as well, although I don’t think ever to the V1 hub.
They still don’t support touchlink, which is optional under Zigbee 3.0. But many zigbee 3.0 Devices will work. In fact, The most recent generation of smartthings branded Zigbee devices are themselves Zigbee 3.0 .
Hi, gledopto just got certification of Smartthings Works Product, so it is okay for gledopto and ST. But it will only find gledopto brand on USA account, that’s weird. I think it is ST’s setting to different country?
I think I will send Gledopto an email to clarify integration with Smartthings. It seems there should be no reason why it shouldn’t work but I will check directly with them before buying and testing it.
