As of this writing, it appears the STSC does not recognize hue light strips attached to a hue bridge. However, they will be discovered automatically if you are using the classic app.
Is everybody now supposed to be using the SmartThings (Samsung Connect) app? I’ve often thought this.
I’ve not received an email saying that I should (UK). So I’m still using the SmartThings Classic app.
Seems a long time to announce that they were mothballing the Classic app, and to not be told to move over to the new version.
Migration questions should be asked in the other thread.
This thread is only for a list of specific differences between the two apps. Please read post #1 in this thread if you’re not sure what goes here. Thanks.
The new app version of Smart Locks (called Smart Lock Guest Access) is very similar to the classic version, but is actually two separate apps. The Classic version you can share a created code by SMS. The new app version you can share with any communication method.
Specifically, if you have “x” number of devices (maybe? who knows how many the new app supports), and you have sync issues, it looks like the only option support is making available is for the customer to delete everything, start over, and hope that it fixes the problem.
Responding in the other thread so as to keep this one on topic.
Absolutely unacceptable answer.
Though it’s no worse than if you bought a new Hub and had to manually migrate, due to the lack of a migration tool. Which could absolutely be necessary, if, it would be a real shame if, your current Hub were to have some sort of, ummm, “accident”, you see, hmmm?
From @jkp in another thread:
If you use SHM in the Classic app, you can use smart plugs. It does not offer that option in SHM in STSC. Be sure to contact ST support to request it as a future feature.
Interesting User Experience decision.
SmartThings has been “tagging” various DH with Capability “Light” (in addition to “Switch”) so that SmartApps like SHM and Alex/GA can tell the difference.
Wouldn’t want to switch on some dangerous appliance like a coffee maker as an SHM alert indicator, right?
From a newbie perspective an awesome thread to read, been here just about a month and impressed
