I got mine last Friday and I installed the iPhone app from Samsung as the directions say then paired it with SmartThings and it works great. I play music and use BigTalker to give me status and alerts. I am getting another three.
Are you getting any delays with BigTalker notifications? and does it resume the music after an alert?
Yes about 5 to ten seconds.
I just connected my new (used $50 ebay!) R1. I had to run discovery for about 5 min but it was found eventually… be patient!
Mine still working after 5 months…
I want to buy this device I need to confirm the correct P/N is WAM1500?
Yes, they work. I have two.
Groupon also has refurb units:
It works. I’ve setup multiple units. There is a process and there are specific tips that can help you along. I posted it before and @JDRoberts made a FAQ for it, I think. I’ll try and dig it up…
[EDIT] Found it. Here you go:
Does this still work for the folks that had it working? Mine did work but no longer does after I had to remove and re-add the device. I spoke to support and they tried some things but eventually said I am out of luck because there is no official support.
Yup, still no problem. I have about 8 that have been running for about a a year now.
I just got my R1 speakers and they are not pairing at all… how did you make it work? I am desperate at this stage…
Download the multiroom app and follow the instructions so they are connected to your WIFI.
I did that. But once I tried “adding a thing” it won’t find it. I have a UK hub and the speakers are not listed in the compatibility list for here. I spoke with someone from Support and they said cause it is not in the list, it won’t pair, which is disappointing.
That sucks, I don’t recall the setup of this but it may work:
I tried already that with a different speaker that supports dlna and same, speaker paired with its app and connected to the same WiFi but it won’t pair. I am just thinking if it has something to do my my router supporting UPnP stack…
Has anyone gotten the r1/wam1500 to connect to St
Yes. I have 2 working without issues for a couple of years now.
They do take quite some time to search/connect.
No go with my R1. Installed the multi speaker app. Have it configured and playing music thru the app just fine. However, SmartThings cannot find the speaker… Sad. Running a Google WiFi network and upnp is enabled.
