Hi everyone,

This page is intended for your suggestions about products and devices that you’d like to be compatible with SmartThings (“Works With SmartThings”). It’s also useful for us to hear about how and why you’re interested in the particular integration.

1.) Chamberlain/Liftmaster MyQ - Most prolific connected GDO of all time.

2.) Hue refresh to support groups and transitionTimes. These are very powerful features of Hue, especially the transitions times which can be used as prefabbed timers up to 30 minutes.

3.) Not exactly a device integration, but I am willing to bet your Android engineers will find it fairly simple to add a Tasker plugin to the mobile app. This will make your Android users very happy as it will allow for various phone states/events to control SmartThings.

  • Parrot Flower Power
  • Would love to see this as it seems to be a really popular product and would love to be able to write some smart apps to notify me and eventually control some sprinklers
  • Any of the iBeacon products
  • Exact room locations in STs would be awesome!
  • Foscam (other wireless cameras)
  • Dropcam is nice, but Dropcam is also $$$$$
  • DropBox/Box/some other only media storage integration to upload snapshots
  • Need a way to securely store and retrieve images/video in the event of a “bad situation”

WiFi security cameras is my #1. This is currently one of the gaping holes in SmartThings universe.

RainMachine irrigation controller: one of the best irrigation system.

Philips Hue: Correct state when trigerred via other apps. Grouping.

Chamberlain MyQ garage controller.

The last has also been suggested by @scottinpollock

Some sort of fan control such as FanLinc:

Control of floor heat so I can get complete control of HVAC including fan and radiant floor heat:

I would like many of the Fibaro products such as:

Flood sensor:

Which is waterproof as needed for my softener.

RGBW controller:

I have many LED strips needing automation.

Window sensor:

and dimmer:

Because it has more features for situations where neutral is not available.

Orbit faucet timer:

so I can water the garden while away.

It would be nice to get Sonos (or something comparable) out of labs and function as a true voice of home automation. I’m afraid it will take several iterations before it gets there however.

Enough for now…

I would like to see the fibaro devices. Especially their smoke sensor when it becomes available sometime later this year or early 1st quarter 2015. Also would like to see the Utilitech Glass Break Sensor which works with Lowes Iris and is z-wave. That would complete the security set up. Have not got my August Smart Lock yet but it is shipping so if it does not work out of the box with ST would love to see integration with this. Ivee alarm clock integration. Ubi works good but Ivee is getting into retailers now so that would be a good integration for ST. Integration with Automatic driving assistant would be a great way to utilize presence detection with the geofence in the ST app. Finally I would like to see integration with Neurio when it ships. This device was a kickstarter project and will allow notifications of energy usage around the house with specific appliances and/or rooms. ibeacons would be great as they could provide the killer app for the smarthome with local presence capabilities. I suspect that will come with hub v.2.


I would love to see the recently released Samsung Smartcam HD Outdoor Camera added into Smartthings :+1:

There are many upcoming devices that ST should be compatible with. Amongst others:

  1. Smart Vents (partnership with Lowe’s)


This device type, in conjunction with a smart thermostat, is a powerful tool for more comfort and energy savings.

  1. Korners: Home security solution


They are supposed to be zigbee (although I don’t have the exact profile specs). These types of devices
can be used for many automation scripts as they combine vibration + contact sensors in one cheap
package (around $20).

  1. Neurio: Home intelligence (smart meter with predefined profiles in the cloud)


This kind of device would be useful to detect energy hogs in a house. The integration with Smartthings
could help eliminate them with automation rules.

  1. Kuna: Ourdoor Lighting + Motion sensor + Security Camera + Intercom

This is a really nice device with a lot of potential for residential/small business uses.



Cheaper alternative to Sonos.

Fibaro sensors.

Glass-break sensor.

A color-changing LED bulb that doesn’t require a separate hub.

(Tim Slagle) #13

Have you looked at the VLC Thing/ObyThing alternatives? They work beautifully.

(Ron S) #14

Certified Sonos Integration with the ability to select multiple Sonos in ST app.

(Beckwith) #15

Blink once they are released and have an API:

This is a much more affordable Dropcam alternative.

Interface with the following oven:

So I can at least shut down if smoke detector triggered among other ideas.

(Freddie Thomas) #16

IP cams (dlink, logitech)

(Ed Meredith) #17

Roost smart battery. Retrofit smart home might be the key to mass adoption due to low cost of entry.

(Mike Lehmann) #18

Check this out!!! Amazon Echo - support this like you do for Sonos???

(Tim Slagle) #19

I like it, but most of Amazons stuff is closed source. No API… No integration. :frowning:

Yeah they didn’t say whether it would have an API… but I guess you are right - that’s their trend :frowning:
