I bought this a couple of days back:
Sengled Element Color Plus Lighting Starter Kit, Control up to 64 Bulbs, 16 Million Color Output, Tunable Warm White to Daylight (2000K – 6500K), Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant http://amzn.to/2D9ofDW
It was a starter pack containing three Sengled E11-N1EA bulbs and a Sengled hub. The box describes them as Element RGBW Bulb, Model: E11-N1EA (3PACK). The hub that came with it is an Element Hub, Model Z02-hub.
When I attach the bulb to the hub it came with and use the Sengled Element app, it works fine and I can control the colors of the bulb. I then disconnect the bulb from the Sengled hub and discover it with the SmartThings app using my v2 hub.
Samsung SmartThings doesn’t recognize that model number. It detects it as a “Thing”. So, I popped into the website and configured the device type. The closest device type is a generic Zigbee RGBW bulb. Everything except the color controls works with that device type.
My inquiry is two fold,
- Can SmartThings hub please be set up to recognize these bulbs?
- Has anyone gotten SmartThings to control the color on these Sengled E11-N1EA bulbs?
Did anyone get it working with ST hub? Samsung support couldn’t get it working, either. They said the model number isn’t supported yet by Samsung SmartThings and that I should check with “the community”. So, here I am!
