So I recently saw the Samsung Sds smart doorlock on smartthings device option
But there is no reviews
Any ody tried it?
It looks really good
Up until now, the Samsung smart locks (which are made by a different division than the Samsung Smartthings Hub) were Bluetooth devices that did not work with SmartThings.
However, it’s possible that with the new V3 app, they might be compatible. They’re definitely nice locks, but it’s unlikely that people in this forum would have one since they didn’t previously work with the platform.
There are also a few Samsung SDS Zwave models, but only available on the Korean zwave frequency, so again, people in this forum would not be likely to have those.
Here’s the models
Can you tell me which model number you have. And maybe a picture of the layout of the lock on smartthings
I don’t have one
I believe the Samsung z-wave locks are more popular in the APAC region. There are couple of folks who’re using it with this custom DTH which supports some of the locks advanced features. Maybe you can ask on that topic about their experiences with the lock. As JD pointed out the locks in the APAC region operate on a different frequency from the US.
here you have fully functioning with smartthings z -wave samsung door lock
I own one myslef ( i am in UK) and works beautifully !
works with standard door lock z-wave device handler and Rboy’s device handler too
I find people who intentionally put bad information into product descriptions, as that eBay listing has done by writing “Yale“ and “Schlage“ on what is a Samsung brand, generally represent a casual attitude towards truth and product specifications that I prefer not to do business with.
In addition, that listing does not specify which zwave frequency it is using. The Z wave frequencies are different for the UK and the US, and must match your hub exactly. So again, an incomplete product description.
it is EU frequency , in the last message i stated I am in the UK and it works wonders I am really happy with this lock myself. I personally would never find that lock like this exist if i wasn’t searching for Yale door lock and this popped up ! So for I am grateful that some people using theses techniques for advertising.
Most locks available in UK and Europe are so ugly and and build quality is of the children toy. In my experience Samsung makes seriously good locks with really good quality. And they look like smart home modern lock instead of some old granny gold plated kitchen cupboard knob
Why don’t you post a separate topic in the deals category for your listing?
I posted it in response to Arabigaming who was looking for samsung lock
and in general to let people who search for samsung z-wave locks that THEY DO EXIST yes they do several forums experts claiming they do not exist with EU frequency .So i thought it will be helpful. But if this post is in the breach with your rules. I am ok to remove it.
This is good info and I’m glad to hear it’s available in the UK. Can you write up or send me a PM about the lock features and your experience and I can add this lock to the comparison table. Definitely a good option for EU.
