Issue setting up Osram Smart+ bulbs with ST


#1

I just just purchased ST starter kit plus 4 x Osram Smart+ GU5.3 spots and am having trouble figuring out how to connect these to ST.

Amazon page said these bulbs are compatible with ST.

The leaflet with the bulbs is not helpful. It suggests you go to www.osram-lamps/smart-home to download their app however this page contains no link to download an app. It is possible their app is also only for use with their own gateway which I don’t have as the Amazon page suggested I can use ST.

The ST support pages suggest you just discover the new device, however, using the new ST app (as recommended by Samsung, not the ST classic app), you have to select ‘add device’, then ‘light bulbs’ which presents with a list of options but no Osram options. So this does not help me either.

Any ideas?

Do not use the new ST (Samsung Connect) app. Use the ST Classic app. The new app is not yet a complete and fully functioning app.

Thanks so much, ST classic picked up the bulbs. I then had to use IDE to manually re-classify them as the app didn’t recognize the ‘type’ automatically. Bulbs now working :slight_smile:
