I’ve got Smartthings runnning on my BlackBerry Z30 running OS 10.3.1 and its been great so far just using the app downloaded directly from Google Play Store through the Snap app.
I’ve only got a open/close sensor and a GE smart switch so far and they work fine. I don’t seem to get any push notifications though even though I’ve set it up that way. Text notifications work fine for now though.
I gather from this thread that the presence sensor doesn’t work without Google Play services. I would would really like to get the presence sensor working as well as that would open the door to many solutions. There are more than just BlackBerry devices that would benefit from removing that dependency since not all Android-based phone have Google Play Services (even though most do).
I really hope Smartthings addresses this, and it might even be in their best interest too in the larger scheme. Samsung is looking to remove as many unecessary ties to Google so they are not subject to Google changing the terms on Android use. And guess what, Samsung owns Smartthings, so maybe the move away from Google Play Services is a good thing.
