Hi Im looking to see if the Baldwin line of Keyless Entry locks are supported. They have both a Zigbee and Zwave version of each of their locks.

I think they may be related to Kiwkset somehow, so it could be just rebranded Kwikset hardware

Hi,

New to this forum but having used the British Gas Safe and Secure system for 3 years and now needing to replace it I find there are very few solutions that include all sensors, and the one I think is missing here and needed is smoke detector

With the BG system I have smoke / flood and intruder detection so I don’t want to replace with less. Also although not as important I think a Carbon Monoxide detector would be well received.

Regards

Andy

are any video doorbells currently supported?

Not yet. Lots of people looking into them but no direct integration. I went ahead and got a Kuna lantern anyway, which I like a lot, and just added a second motion sensor that did integrate with SmartThings so I could trigger SmartThings events at the same time. A lot of people do the same kind of idea with other video doorbells. See the following topic ( this is a clickable link)

Ring vs Skybell vs Kuna vs?

SmartThings staff just posted to the forums yesterday that Fibaro smoke sensor for the UK is currently undergoing certification testing with SmartThings. No timeline given but at least they’re looking into official support for those.

Thanks for the reply re smoke alarms. Not sure if this is a new device as more a feature request or query. But is there a backup connectivity method planned for the hub. So if the Internet is down can the hub connect via 3/4G for example

Yale YRD220 ZIGBEE Touch screen lock

I know it’s not out yet, but would integration be possible with the BEDDI alarm clock? It looks cool and apparently can control HUE lights, so I assume it has built in zigbee?

BEDDI Kickstarer

It’s a kickstarter project, so of course it looks cool. Until you can buy it for two day delivery from Amazon, it’s all just marketing.

But there’s no need for zigbee, and no indication that it plans to use it. Philips has an open API, so anything on your WiFi network can make requests of your Hue bridge. That’s why so many different things work with Hue. Phone apps don’t need zigbee to change color on Hues, and neither does this. The Hue bridge has the zigbee radio, and the phone uses Wi-Fi or Cloud to talk to the bridge. Hence the term “bridge.” :sunglasses:

This is just an Internet-enabled alarm clock with a white noise machine built-in.

Good points - thanks for the info! :smile:

Forgive me - I hope this is the right forum. Are there any recommendations for combustible/natural gas detectors? I can’t seem to find any zwave options that are known brands. Alibaba has a few no names on their site.

None I know of. One community member has been experimenting with one of the imports:

THanks for the reply. It looks like they are coming. Still a no name so a little concerned, especially for the purpose.

Has Nortek’s new switch cover been submitted for SmartThings compatibility testing?

This is a new Zwave device, battery-operated, that fits over an existing switch. The intent is to let you leave the power always on to smart bulbs while controlling the switch with Z wave.

I want this! :sunglasses:

I know it’s big and ugly, but it solves so many problems.

Has there been any talk of integrating with Angee?

I know it is not out yet, but I really think there is a need for this type of device. If it could integrate with SmartThings it would make my life complete.

Can’t integrate with something that doesn’t even have certifications yet.

Community discussion of Angee here (this is a clickable link)

The Roomba would be nice so it can talk to the motion sensors letting them know that it’s not a human so keep the lights off. I could also use an away from home feature for automatic scheduling, and a returned home rule to tell the Roomba to finish early. Or other features like vacation so the whole house can easily be configured with one simple status and the roomba doesn’t keep cleaning the same floor the entire time we’re away.

Some members have some models of Roomba working with Smart
Things via an additional device. See the following thread (this is a clickable link)

I want to vote up the WeMo Maker - this thing is the easiest Garage opener you can get your hands on, all it needs is a pathway to leverage the fantastic ST logic for presence based door control.

It has an IFTTT channel, doesn’t it? So you have already indirect integration that way. :sunglasses:
