After ordering around 5 PM I received an email from the store saying they don’t have the item in stock and they canceled my order. It is still listed on the website for 50% off so I’m heading there today to find it along with a print out of the price.
There are several discussions about the 2nd gen devices working with ST. Do a quick search and you’ll find them (@btk linked a great one) . In fact, about 30 minutes ago I just added another smart plug. I use a ton of the motion sensors, several open/close sensors, and a button or two.
Do you know if these are dimmer switches? When you switch them off and on do they go from 0 to 100 instantly or are they like the other GE switches that slowly go from 0-100 (I would assume instant if they aren’t dimmers.)
The reason I ask, is I have Phillips hue bulbs installed in 4 can lights in my kitchen but i’m looking to have smart switches in there as well because it’s annoying to have the normal flip switch always on. Does anyone know how well it would work to have both smart switches and phillips hue bulbs? I have certain scenes where I want to have individual control of lightbulbs and sometimes I just want to easily be able to turn them all on from a switch. Or will this cause a lot of my scenes to get out of sync / other issues.
Well when I had Wink the average delay was 5-10 second from the door opening until the lights came on.
On a good day the 30 second autolock would have locked the door again before the lights came on that were triggered by the unlocking.
So I can completely understand why they are thrilled with a 2 second delay on triggers
I’ll chime in and agree with Greg, the ST-TCP integration is anything but reliable. I am constantly having to open the tcp app in ST and login again. Sometimes it’s good for a few weeks other times it only lasts a few hours. Luckily the daughter inherited all the TCP bulbs ,and I figured out that it was just a matter of running the setup in ST app again to reconnect them. The first time I was stumbling around in her dark basement unable to turn on the lights I wasn’t happy.
