Hey guys, Found Outlink smart outlet at my local HD for sale for $13 a piece. I hear from the community that it works with ST, even if without energy monitoring.
Am pretty sure $13 is a good deal… When the Leviton ones are going for around $40.
Will let you guys know abt ST integration results.
PS: Posting from HD and gonna take them all ;-). If not needed, will return later. Love the community for threads like this, which educates quickly
Just be aware when planning your network that the quirky outlet is a zigbee device, so it will repeat only for other zigbee devices, not Zwave. The Leviton you mentioned is Zwave. Both are good, you just need to plan your layout accordingly.
These are Bluetooth bulbs, not zigbee, and since the Bluetooth radio in the SmartThings hub is not yet enabled, you won’t be able to connect them directly to the SmartThings hub at the present time. And I haven’t seen anything about an API for the phone app. So my guess is these will not work with the SmartThings hub for now. They will work with a wink hub, or at least they were supposed to when they were first announced, but that was using Bluetooth.
Anyone find any deals on dimmable led bulbs. I need a few DUMB bulbs that are dimmable. What has been a good price lately? Considering smart bulbs have dropped, I would assume dumb bulbs would have dropped as well, but I am still seeing $12 or so per bulb.
HD put a bunch of the 25w-equivalent Philips dimmable candelabra LED bulbs down from $15.97 to $9.10 and stuck them back on a shelf where things go to die. I’m waiting on the price to drop again as I need some for my chandelier.
