I know, this has been asked many times before and will probably be asked many times in the future until SmartThings finally natively supports grouping similar devices.
As of today, what’s the best way to accomplish this? I have 4 smart bulbs in my bedroom, 99% of the time I use my Amazon Echo to control them, however, with other things, like 3rd party apps like IFTTT, SharpTools, SmartTiles (until they’re next release which I think includes grouping), etc…Grouping would make life easier.
Previously, I use to use Dim with Me and a basic virtual dimmer, but it just didn’t always work perfectly well…not sure why, could be a number of things…the smart app, the virtual dimmer device type code or my custom device type code for my bulbs.
I tried using Rule Machine, but was more complicated than I wanted to deal with. Is Dim With Me still the best app to use? I stopped using it like 7 months ago, so maybe it’s better now. Or maybe it was my virtual dimmer / custom bulb device type code.
