I have 4 at home! They work flawless! And are popular in europe… Very low energy comsumption / low noise and very efficient, but the wifi function doesnt works as expected! Very slow and laggy. And i want to control the 4 at the same time and for that i need a thermostat like ecobee! But i think it doesnt works with that kind of hubs… So maybe with smarthings

It seems that all the Silicon Valley hardware stores stock Leviton/Lutron switches but just about none stock such from GE or Jasco. Even if I order an In Wall switch of GE/Jasco type, they only come in White or Light Almond. My house switches are all in Ivory. The list of compatible Leviton/Lutron switches is quite small. I need a Leviton/Lutron that I can use to switch from a driveway sensor.

LUtron switches are not directly compatible with smartthings. Leviton simple switches usually are, but their scene controllers may not be.

Most Home Depots stock the GE switches, in the “Iris” section. Although you may not have the color choices that you want. Best Buy carries the zigbee models of the GE switches as well.

Any reason you don’t want to shop online?

http://www.zwaveproducts.com tends to carry most models, and Amazon has many.

I think the widest online selection is at the Insteon retail site, www.smarthome.com but the problem there is that they carry many devices which are not compatible with smart things. So you have to know what you’re looking for. But they do seem to carry a very wide color selection.

GE appliance interconnect modules like

and

these are part of the GE connect plus range and supposedly work with Wink

thanks

If I get a GM/Onstar development account I might give it a shot! Just got a new Spark EV.

I applied for a GM developer account as well. I found out that my mom has an OnStar account I can use for testing…And, based on my existing integration with the Automatic Car connected device, it should not be that difficult…

Does anyone know if the ecosmart light bulbs work with smarthings? They are the cheapest led smart bulbs from home depot.

Unless I’ve missed a model, the ecosmart are just regular dumb LEDs, not networked at all, which is why they’re so inexpensive. So you’d need a smart zigbee or zwave switch, and then they’d work fine.

Or is there a networked model?

AEOTEC Smart Strip would be a great addition to the product supported.

I would also like to see the Aeon Power Strip officially supported @Tyler any further development on this cool device?

Bar code is 6956117200298

It says it is a A19 smart bulb. It is a wink compatible bulb so it has some sort of connectivity. But it just doesn’t say what protocol it uses.

Maybe it’s new? I’m not finding anything when I search on that bar code. Do you have a link or a model number?

http://www.upcdatabase.com/itemnotfound.asp?upc=6956117200298

Yea, I’m not finding much info either. Perhaps it is new, or perhaps it’s a home depot exclusive.

Using the HD app I can scan the barcode, it comes up as "ECS LED Connected Dim A19 60W DL 2pk. Store Sku# 1000835497.

But I can’t even find that scu on their website.

Sorry. I guess me asking if it works with the smart things is something I won’t get an answer to. This product is quite obscure

It’s a good question anyway, I’m just sorry we can’t answer it yet! The GE Link bulbs work with both Wink and SmartThings, but they use the standard zigbee home automation profile. Then you get some bulbs which are also zigbee but use a proprietary format that can’t connect directly to anything else. So you just never know.

There’s a lot of engineering that goes into a light bulb and even more into a connected Bulb. It’s good to save money, but sometimes there are advantages to going up even just a few dollars per bulb in getting one that handles heat better or the connection itself. But the best thing is to have choices because it all depends on the exact use case. So I hope we find out more about these soon. :sunglasses:

We support directly connected WeMo bulbs. This one.

We’ll be taking another look at this device when we publish support for aggregate and composite devices in the next few months. This will allow us to truly support devices with multiple addressable outlets.

That is fantastic news Tyler!!

I appreciate you taking a second look at this device.:+1:t3:

Friends of Hue (reset capability).

When I upgraded to the new hub, I lost connectivity and it will not reset.

Tyler, does “directly connected” mean without the Wemo Link hub thingy? In other words, can I buy just the bulb? Sorry if that’s a silly question.

I’d really like to see a UPS with z-wave energy metering and switch. I’d like to be able to monitor the energy used by the UPS, and to be able to turn off the UPS when I’m away (and without it going to battery backup).

Yes - you can pair a WeMo ZigBee bulb directly to the SmartThings Hub without using their Link adapter.
