Single Push Button Battery Operated Switch

There are now a number of single button options, including one just recently released by Iris that is a Zigbee device. We track those in the following topic (this is a clickable link)

FAQ: Full list of buttons and remotes confirmed to work with SmartThings [Not all devices listed work with the 2020 Platform]

The new Philips remote is being worked on by some community members, but at present does not work well with SmartThings. You can pair it, but SmartThings doesn’t recognize the button presses. It works well as a parallel means of control, for example in a guestroom, but it can take SmartThings about five minutes to know what the status of the bulb is (which it gets by polling the Hue bridge), and you can only use the Philips remote to control a single group of Zigbee light bulbs.

In contrast, the three new Iris Zigbee devices can be used like a minimote or the smartenit 3 toggle and used to trigger zigbee devices, Z wave devices, mode changes, SHM alarm status, etc.

But again, just see the topic to above, it lists pretty much everything that’s working now and is updated regularly. :sunglasses:
