Have VeraPlus, thinking of ST. Would Amcrest WiFi camera work?


(Alan Raczek) #1

Hi all-
I have a VeraPlus and have not to use it much (use Veralite actually, have not upgraded yet). But now that I got a Google Home I am leaning toward buying a SmartThings Hub for more native integration. I also just bought 2 Amcrest IP WiFi camera’s IP3M-943W . Bought them thinking I would keep the Vera but am rethinking the hub thing, esp since SmartThings does not seem like so much a niche product as Vera.

But the real question is would the camera’s integrate into a SmartThings ecosystem??

Don’t hate me now, but should I then think about Wink?

You should check with the developer of this device handler.

You could send a direct message, or just post in that thread I linked to.
