This was interesting. Home Depot has a new search filter, “works with” for their smart home category. You can search by works with: Alexa, Google Home, HomeKit, Nest, SmartThings, or Wink. Or any combination thereof.

Those are speakers

Yeah, but it says that it works with SmartThings…Looking at the documentation now.

Someone who sits in an office and works for Home Depot probably thought since they said Samsung on them, that they work with Samsung smart things!!

All I see is control by Samsung Audio Remote App. Don’t see anything like Samsung Multiroom Audio system. Got excited for a second.

It’s not a Works with SmartThings device but looking at the code, that model should discover with SmartThings.

Looking at the code, what functionality would one have via SmartThings?

This is…interesting. Lots of random stuff like cable modems and wifi mesh systems.

Yeah…we are reaching out to Home Depot about the unsupported devices.

Should be similar to other LAN speakers, Play/Pause/Stop, Previous/Next Track, and Volume/Mute
