You definitely don’t need the gateway – – it doesn’t integrate with smartthings. The bulbs get connected directly to the smartthings hub instead.
(Well, we should say that some people also get the gateway just so they can do firmware up date to the bulbs, but that process requires removing the bulbs from the SmartThings network, connecting them to the gateway network, doing the firmware upgrade, and then moving them back to the SmartThings network. But you don’t need to Gateway in every day use. )
@drchris I’m in UK, and just bought 3 Lightify tunable white GU10 bulbs, with no Lightify gateway. Paired to ST hub fine.
@AutomateEverything did you get sorted? My house has probably another 30-40 GU10 and I don’t want to spend all on that, in fact I’d prefer a smart wall switch, so if wife turns it off ST can still control it, whereby at the moment if she turns off this wall switch where the bank of Lightify bulbs are, ST can’t do anything.
Im opting to dononly mood lighting with HUE now and all the main light switches im moving to LWRF now that @adamclark_dev has created a fast and realiable integration for ST & LWRF lighting - as there is no uk solution for smart switches yet that doesnt require a neutral that most of us dont have…
Suppose, I’m hoping it may be answer for me though as cheaper and easier, keeps existing wall switch (wife happy!), even if switched off can still be controlled by ST. Cheaper than filling all my fitting with smart bulbs.
I’m hoping that although my back box is shallow, if needed I can hang it down the plaster wall recess…
Ive fitted several for several people, i can assure you the best way to eliminate issues is a rocker style switch - no/off normal switches tend to piss about with it and u find urself having to turn it on and off really quick to turn it down or same to do on . . .
As long as you do not exceed the max amperage of the device (max. output current of 6A (max. 72W@12V and 144W@24V) then any bog standard led will work including the one you’ve linked.
I would personally look for a LED strip which is RGBW to give you a little more flexibility with lighting options.
Is it possible to hook it up to the “Dresden FLS-PP Module” and still have the current module its connected to working with the remote? I mean, is there any way to connect it to both in some way? If you know?
Otherwise I’ll just have to disconnect it from that current module and connect it to the “Dresden FLS-PP Module”
