I’m sorry, I don’t know. Just remember that at this point, with a very few exceptions (and Gledopto is not one), ST will only be providing generic Edge Drivers but with specific model fingerprints added if they have been tested for compatibility. Otherwise it’s up to the device manufacturer to create and maintain the integration.
Did you check the list of beta edge drivers created by ST to see if any gledopto devices are already there? Otherwise you can look for community-created drivers. There are links to both the stock list and the custom ones in the community-created wiki.
I can confirm that Gledopto works perfect with that driver.
Just to be clear, use only Zigbee 3.0 PRO version. Response is instant, and even if I use Remote controller, it updates status in app instantly.
Other PLUS version, wirks well when you do all control from SmartThings. If you have Remote controller, it does not update status instantly, it takes some time…
This is PRO device
1 and 2) Both Meross and Hue have strip lights that work well with smartthings, and both are already integrated to the new platform. But they aren’t connected directly to a smartthings hub. Both are available in multiple regions. These two also both also work with HomeKit.
RGBGenie has a controller for dumb strips that can be joined to a hue bridge, so you get integration that way. It won’t work with HomeKit, but it should work fine with smartthings on a new platform.
Inovelli has a zwave strip on the US frequency that does connect directly to the hub. I think right now it is using a groovy DTH, but Inovelli has said they will provide edge drivers when needed.
Zooz has a zwave controller for dumb strips which again uses a groovy DTH right now, but they have said they are already working on the edge drivers.
So there are still quite a few choices even looking just at what will work once the groovy cloud is discontinued.
Hue offers both a cloud to cloud integration (used if you don’t have a Smartthings Hub) and a local LAN integration (used if you do have a smartthings/Aeotec hub). So it’s One of the rare integrations other than Zwave or zigbee which currently runs local.
Also, Meross is capable of running without its cloud (that’s how it does HomeKit), so it seems likely that once smartthings has Matter support, Meross will also be available locally, but of course, no promises, and that’s at least a year off.
But for now, devices attached to a hue bridge are definitely an option. So that would include RGBGenie as well.
I assume by the Pro version you are referring to the black one GLC-008P?
I noticed this new GLC-001P Pro version they are now promoting – seems to have a lot of options, settable for different types of strips, and settable behavior when you power it on. Is it likely that it uses the same ST edge driver?
A little off-topic for here, but… Is there any way to “gang” or group multiple GLEDOPTO units together so they are controlled as one? For example, in one big room I expect to use 2 Pro controllers because the strip is going to be longer than 32ft (yes, I know about the in-line repeater/power injectors, it’s just not in a good place to mount in the middle of the molding holding the strips) . I’d hate to have to adjust each half of the room independently.
32ft is no issues to run on one controller, without voltage drop.
I have 54ft run on one controller. With 12v strips there was little voltage drop, but 24v strips solved that issue. You need to have matching power supply.
I got it on ebay. It was one of those kits with options to choose voltage and controllers. I can’t find seller that i bought kit from. It came from China, within 2 to 3 weeks. Just search for Gledopto Zigbee 3.0.
Controller is stuck with Velcro tape to the ceiling in the closets. Power supplies are above the ceilings, in the attic. During summer they were normal, surrounding temperature. Led strips comes out of the closets, goes around the rooms and ends in the closets. No issues with strip bending inside the corners and on outside corners. I was just, somehow lucky not to end with any of leds on actual corner
Strips are non-waterproof RGBCCT, not Gledopto brand
