I am a current Lowes Iris customer that is about to be out of luck (as you may of heard Lowes is shutting down Iris at the end of March). I have a large property with 3 out buildings and I have about 200 devices deployed across the buildings that I need to migrate / replace in the next 50 days. I have ran Ethernet to each of the buildings via underground pipe.
I am curious with the SmartThings Wifi solution if I put 2 of these devices in each building and plugged all the SmartThings Wifi devices into Ethernet will these devices extend the Zigbee/Z-Wave network over the building to building Ethernet or do Smartthings Wifi devices act like a typical Zigbee/Z-Wave smart plugs and just extend the Zigbee/Z-Wave mesh over the air?
Sorry my first post to the community is a tricky one but I would appreciate the help.
