Smart things and smart life bulbs

I have 6 smart bulbs in the House which all show on smartlife app.

I have 3 in the living room, 2 in the hall and one in the master bedroom which all show on the smartlife app.

I have connected smartthings to my smart life app, but only one of the bulbs in the living room shows? Any idea why this is and how to get the others showing in the smart things app?

Did you verify in each devices info that it supports SmartThings as a third party?

In the third party control for the ones that dont show, it doesnt have smartthings in there. but i just presumed it was because it wasnt showing for them bulbs in smarthings

Are they a different brand/model from the ones that are showing in ST?

I got my smartlife bulbs and smartlife fan running with Smartthings following these instructions

If the device itself doesn’t show up, when you create “tap-to-run” actions in the smartlife app (smartlife version of scenes), those tap to run actions come into Smartthings.

However, they come in as “offline” devices, and you have to create virtual switches that toggle the “offline” switches with webcore or smartlighting.

It was a pain to setup, but has been working reliably since I set it up.

All these came over for me

Is the above part done in smarthings app?

Yes, once they come over, you can control them direct through webcore, or by creating virtual switches in Smartthings tied to smartlighting or webcore pistons.

Because they are offline, the automations screen in the new app itself can’t control them. For some reason, smartlighting and webcore don’t care they are offline.

Thanks. Will have a go :ok_hand:
