I have a bunch of Sengled bulbs connected directly to SmartThings, thinking about picking up a Sengled hub so I don’t bump into the 32 device limit and I have an extra measure of control over the lights when SmartThings is experiencing issues.
Right now all the directly connected lights are controlled via local execution. If I move them all over to a Sengled hub will that also bump them from local to cloud execution?
There is no integration using the sengled Hub. You have to connect them directly to the Smartthings Hub.
That said, if you’re just looking to avoid the 32 device limit try a Zigbee device that acts as a repeater… You can’t just drop in any old zigbee bulb unfortunately, as many just don’t repeat. (including the Sengleds) But, there’s lots of devices that do work mentioned in various threads. I chose the Lowes Iris 3210-L pocket switch to extend my zigbee mesh into a far corner of my house to boost signal to three misbehaving Osram bulbs… Worked great. No reconfiguration necessary.
Oh…right, then…guess that settles that.
