I searched for discussions related to the Lowes Iris Smart Button and found the relevant following discussions:
The SmartButton… x4
Smart Button Achieved! (Sorta…)
Those discussions are over one year old, and I was wondering lately if anyone out there has attempted to get the Lowes Iris Smart Button working with SmartThings?
I was on the phone today with Lowes Iris Customer Support and asked them specifically about the Smart Button. First, I asked if the Smart Button is a Zigbee device, to which they replied “yes it is”. For clarification, I asked if the Smart Button is and actual Zigbee Certified device or if it is a proprietary form of Zigbee that works with Iris only. Their reply was that yes, it is a Zigbee Certified device AND it was designed to work with Iris. (Unfortunately, I neglected to ask if the smart button was certified to the Zigbee HA profile or to some other profile.)
So, has anyone been successful at including the Smart Button into ST? If yes, could the button control anything?
If no, what issues did you encounter?
I happen to have a Smart Button at home and will see for myself whether it can be recognized by the ST hub. For $19.99 each, I think it’s the perfect solution to restore local control to some of my lights without needing to find my phone, open the ST app, wait for it to initialize, scroll to the proper tile, then press the icon, just to turn on a light!
For now, I have a couple Intermatic HA07 controllers programmed to control my lights, but I do need to remember what each channel was assigned to do…i.e. Channel 1 controls the uplight in my family room, Channel 2 controls the floor lamp, Channel 5 controls the floor lamp in my living room, Channel 6 controls the other lamp in my living room…etc.
Yes, I am aware of those 4-channel minimote controllers, but sometimes all you need is 1 button.
