Looking to move house in coming weeks and was all excited at the prospect of picking some new white goods that would play nicely with SmartThings - your washer talking to your fridge and god knows what else has been the IOT home automation story for years right?!
I wasn’t surprised, but genuinely disappointed, to not be able to find anything current that claims to work with Zigbee or Z-Wave or just SmartThings!
I found a few washers and dryers that have smart phone apps and have web connectivity (but no claim to have a WebUI) No idea or clear indication if these would be able to work with ST. Does anyone know if its possible at this stage. Really dont want to invest in decent appliances (that I wouldn’t rationally want to replace for 5+ or so years) that i cannot build into a bigger overall smart house plan.
Is anyone from SmartThings able to comment on the Samsung range of washers / dryers specifically - these have mobile phone apps and connect to the web via wifi - is there a plan to extend this to a ST device type in the current range? Would seem really flawed if a unique phone app is the only way, ultimately splitting the eco system back into isolated apps for each task - not to mention show a real lack of confidence in the ST ecosystem if Samsung approved to build brand new isolated mobile apps for products.
Keeping my fingers crossed and look forward to hearing back on any thoughts or potential successes already!
