I have a Lenovo Smart Display right now and have been using it mainly in the kitchen. I’m planning to increase my smart home devices and want to use a SmartThings hub to connect everything. Is this compatible with my Lenovo Smart Display? I want to use this instead of my old Google Home because of its added screen - it’s easier to control using a touchscreen occasionally and also everything can be done from my kitchen/living area.
The voice assistant portion should work the same as a google home. The s teen part won’t be much benefit since they don’t allow Android apps to be installed or even have a web browser.
So far, neither Google nor Amazon’s “smart displays” have been made compatible with SmartThings App or web-based control Apps. But both Google and Amazon/Alexa’s platforms have a history of evolving pretty quickly, so all possibilities remain open for the future.
In the meantime, I would like to recommend our web-app, ActionTiles (free fully functional to explore for 14-days trial), to get an idea of what can be run on an inexpensive tablet (Amazon Fire HD are most popular) and/or phone.
The efficiently Tiled layout / dashboard-style interface of ActionTiles is what we would most like to see on a “smart display”, and are keeping watch for when we might be able to achieve this.
Thanks! Definitely hoping they’ll launch an update for the LSD platform (and other smart displays given the coming trend) soon to be compatible with SmartThings!
