TCP connected bulbs stopped working with Smartthings since TCP Servers went down
The TCP Gateway allow to send commands to control the lights but use ssl with a self signed cert, and Smartthings do not allow to send request to this type of connections
Until ST change this its no possible to send direct command to the gateway, of course its possible to use a proxy but it requires extra steps and equipment.
The original firmware version of gateway do not use ssl and if you have a gateway with this firmware, you can use direct commands from Smartthings
There is some instructions to downgrade the gateway but I have not use it, if some want to try, the site with the instructions are:
If you have a gateway with firmware ver 2 , you can use this app to control your lights.
You must to block the internet service of your gateway to avoid updates
You must to enter the ip gateway and I suggest you to assign a static ip to gateway, to avoid update the ip each time your router change it
The bulbs are stable and works fine, the gateway does not has a subscription method, then a schedule refresh its needed to update the status if an external action occurs
Your TCP lights must not include custom images, due ST limits, if your lamps have custom images is not possible to get the lamp info.
