I have had SmartThings for about 3 months now and have about 10-15 different switches and sensors hooked up to it.
I also have an August lock and doorbell, 4 Arlo cameras, a Nest thermostat, Harmony hub and Elite remote, and an echo.
I have been reading the forums since I got the smart things hub but there are a few things that I just can’t seem to figure out.
Everyone keeps talking about CoRE and different smartapps for it. How do I get this? I am thinking that this might help get my nest onto smartthings and maybe even allow me to check status of devices through the echo.
Can someone explain to me how to take the next step with smarthings…thanks!!!

I’m tired today, so I’m going to let other people answer your questions about the micros, but I just wanted to mention that it is possible to use one of the Lutron combo fan/light single gang switches that uses IR in a smart setup By also adding your Logitech Harmony hub into the mix. The harmony can then control the Lutron wall switch, the Lutron wall switch controls the fan controller bridge in the fan canopy – – and smartthings can talk to the harmony. This is an expensive option, but it does work. However, it has to be a Lutron model that can work with the harmony, and not all do.
Oh and if you use an IR remote solution, including the harmony, you don’t get status back to smartthings if someone just uses the wall switch. That might or might not matter to you. If it does matter, then you’re better off looking at the solutions with the micros.
Like I said, I’m tired and I’m having to work just from voice today, so I’m not going to check if the model you linked to is the same as the model that will work with the harmony, but you can find the discussion of the one that does work, along with some micro discussion, and the following thread:
AlSo you can look up harmony device compatibility:
