I have been debating whether to give the Connect mesh system a try since I have dead spots around my home, especially the garage and basement. Lowe’s has the Samsung Connect 3 pack (not Pro) on Lowes.com deal-of-the-day for $89 so I picked one up. At that price it’s worth a shot to see if it will improve both wifi and Smartthings coverage.
just be forewarned you will have to setup your SmartThings environment from scratch
Is the hub portion of the Connect set any different than the V2 hub?
Each satellite has a zigbee and z-wave repeater, which is nice. But it runs a slightly older version of hub firmware, so it supports less local devices
Thanks…good to know. Does that mean I will have to reload all the device handlers and SmartApps too?
That would be a good questions for support. If you currently login with a Samsung account, probably not.
Since I already have a hub, can these be used just as extender ?
Not with a V2 hub
