Meross native Integration

Seems that Smartthings added Meross native integration. I logged in fine but then devices are not added in ST. I know at least one more person had this issue @Swampylee

Did anyone have any success with this?

Also, in the ST classic app, under Smartapps, if i click on meross i get a ‘Something’s Wrong. We can’t load your screen right now’

Most of the new cloud to cloud integrations will only work in the new app.

Which specific models were you trying to add from your Meross account?

Hey JD. Just to be clear i tried adding the devices from the new app. The issue with the classic app was just an observation.

I have their regular plugs with energy monitoring and their 2 power strips, the one with the usbs and the one without.

I have multiple smart plugs (UK) both energy monitoring and standard. I go through the process to connect SmartThings with Meross and it seems to go through ok but the devices are never added.

I have the exact same problem described here. I have this Meross outdoor smart plug:

Works fine within the Meross app and with Alexa voice commands. I can add my Meross account in SmartThings but no devices are available after sign in.

I have the outdoor plug as well and can confirm that it does not work with the SmartThings integration.

ST support told me that Meross has not added support for anything with a parent/child structure and to contact Meross to request it.

Meross support just told me “Not all models are supported in that integration.” I am still waiting for a list of what is supported.

Hey thanks a lot for looking into this. I guess we’ll just have to be patient. I’ll bug Meross about this and dangle a carrot of future plug purchases in front of them :slight_smile:
Aside from the ST integration the plug has been pretty solid and handles Canadian winters with ease.

Using Alexa as a “man in the middle” works pretty well. this is my outdoor Meross plug:

You can put any logic you want on the ST side:

Out of curiosity, how does something like this show up in the smarthings devices if it has not been implemented by the company, in this case Meross?

FYI I have IFTTT as the middle man and it also works well.

It doesn’t, unless you create a virtual proxy so you can display the status.

The virtual sensor as described in the FAQ shows up as both a sensor and a switch. But if you are using one routine to turn on multiple devices then it’s not a one to one proxy.

The new cloud integrations are published by the manufacturer. SmartThings only does a security audit (as I understand the process). But it seems a lot of them are publishing them to the public app too soon.

This is the response I received from them

Thank you for letting us know

Just went through the authentication process with the Meross integration again. Initially I thought it had done nothing as previous attempts. However, this time my devices have appeared in the new app!

A great step forwards for me, and will consider buying more Meross when they go on sale :slight_smile:

Is it bidirectional? I.e. can you change the on/off state in their app and it updates in the SmartThings app?

Yes! I’ve been waiting for over two years for this :grin:
