I added my Harmony Hub to ST and it now appears (under “My Home/Things”) as a ST “Thing”. When I click on the hub “Thing” the screen only shows 1 of the 6 Harmony activities. No rhyme or reason for the one activity choses. Can this be changed? If only one activity can be displayed here I would like to chose which.
Last time I looked at the official integration, which was admittedly was awhile ago, when you clicked on the hub it showed you the last Harmony activity that smart things was aware of.
All your activities should’ve been added as virtual switches and should also show up in your things list.
I haven’t seen this posted anywhere, so I thought I’d write up my experience.
I wanted to control my TV, set top box, receiver, etc with my Echo and I’m a bit paranoid about IFTTT. I saw that the new Samsung Smartthings hub is compatible with both Echo and with the Logitech Harmony Hub. Long story short, Alexa can now turn on my TV, receiver, set to the right input, and change channels! I also have two Philips Hue Bloom lights behind my TV and they can be set to different colors depending on the channel. (Syfy and HGTV simply MUST have different colors… obviously :P)
To do this, you set up “Activities” in the logitech harmony hub software. For example, if I want Alexa to be able to tune to HGTV, I create an HGTV activity in the harmony hub software. The activity will turn on the TV…
