I’m in the process of evaluating a move from Wink to SmartThings. I wanted to ping the community to get input on if any of my existing devices will have problems working with SmartThings. It looks like there are solutions for everything, but I wanted to make sure…
16 GE Link bulbs
Amazon Echo (used for voice control of lighting)
3 Nest Protects (Not officially supported, but there seems to be working code floating around.)
1 Nest Thermostat (Gen 1)
1 Lutron Connected Bulb Remote (used as a scene controller to adjust bedroom lighting to 4 predefined settings)
1 Ecolink Z-Wave motion detector (used to trigger kitchen lights on between sunset and sunrise when motion is detected and off again 5 minutes after motion stopped)
Some basic integration via IFTTT such as NEST smoke alarm = all lights on. Nothing complicated.
Is there anything here that I shouldn’t be able to get working in a similar fashion using the ST hub?
My primary challenge with Wink is simply response time. Turning on/off lights is frequently rather delayed between button/app and the actual light status change. I also enjoy tinkering since I’m a software developer and ST seems way more open in that regard.
Thanks in advance!
