I’m relatively new to this, so forgive any silly questions.
I have purchased three Heiman Smoke Sensors (seen
It’s connecting to my Samsung SmartThings Hub v3, but is only detected as “Thing”. After some Googling, it appeared I needed to install Edge drivers to support it, which I did. I installed “Zigbee Smoke Detector” from “SmartThings Drivers (Beta)”.
I unpaired all three devices and re-paired one of them and it is still detected as “Thing”.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SmartThings. Add a little smartness to your things.
also… consider using the following community developed tool instead of IDE:
I have a browser-based web app that provides a point-and-click way to explore most of the SmartThings API. For the non-technical, this gives you access to an important SmartThings resource without having to learn tools like Postman, curl, or the CLI. You don’t even need a computer: a tablet or even smartphone can be used. For the more technically inclined, it provides much faster and more convenient access to those commonly-accessed CLI commands. Although I originally thought of it as a portal for the non-technical, I’ve actually found it quite useful to use during my own development activities.
This is not intended as a replacement or ‘competitor’ to the CLI, mysmartthings, IDE(? well, maybe…), mobile app, etc, but is meant to provide a quick and easy supplemental tool.
I want to a…
With the transition to the new architecture, the IDE is in the process of being discontinued. Some features are already gone. Any device using new architecture, such as those using edge drivers, will just show up as “placeholder“ and the information will be incomplete or even inaccurate. (For example, it will probably say that all devices showing “placeholder“ are in the cloud, where in fact all edge drivers run local.)
Don’t try to use the IDE to change anything that says placeholder: you might even break the integration altogether.
http://my.smartthings.com is the new official webpage access to your smartthings account, but it doesn’t have all the same features as the IDE.
So… how do you do the things that you used to do with the IDE now?
This topic is a place to post those questions…

Thanks a lot! That’s all that was needed (using Mariano’s driver). I will look at the links you have provided as well. Thanks again, you saved me a lot of frustration.
