I’m interested in installing a smartapp that turns off the Fiabaro LEDs and I cannot find the documentation on how to install the app. I don’t need the LED indicators and find them distracting.
I believe that the app is:

But, how do I install it?
If there is a ‘getting started guide’ to using the apps (installing, deleting, monitoring, checking log files, etc) I sure would like to know about it. At some point in the future, I’d like to develop some apps, but for now, I’d just like to install.

Here’s the custom code FAQ (this is a clickable link). It should help.
So you’re new to SmartThings, you asked a question, and someone suggested “custom code” as an answer.
Or you were browsing the forums, and you found something that sounded like it would be perfect for what you wanted, but again, “uses custom code.”
What does that mean, how hard is it to do, and what’s the difference between a “SmartApp” and a “Device Type Handler”?
(Note: the official terminology has changed a couple of times. “device type handler,” “device handler,” “DTH,” and “device type” all mean the same thing, and you will find all these terms used in the forums.)
