Official Integration. I deleted my integration, opened the new phone app. It discovered my TP-Link devices (all). Control worked; however, the state did not update as-expected. It seemed to be similar to same problem we had at one time with the classic app. State would update when you went to the details page or back to the devices page.
My Integration. I could not install the app in the new phone app. After installing using the classic phone app, it can be run in the new app to add devices. One good thing - with the energy monitor plugs (HS-300, HS-110, I was able to get the power and energy to display in the new app (it does not in the "official Integration). This required a change in the vid parameter.
Update: My devices include:
HS-200 switch (not on list from SmartThings)
HS-300 multi-plug with Energy Monitor (no EM functions in official integration)
LB-120 CT Bulb (not on list from SmartThings). Works great; including setting CT.
LB-130 Color Bulb.
VID Parameters: If anyone has an official list of VID parameters, it would be GREAT. There are some unofficial lists, but rather incomplete. EG: Is there a VID parameter for color Temperature Bulbs?
You’re right. I could have sworn this worked when I first set it up. I have the HS105 plug. Bummer. I guess it’s a ticket to support. Luckily I don’t really use that plug since I’ve been moving to the Samsung plugs as they run local with smart lighting.
Installed a WS200 switch and 2 HS105 yesterday.
Hub v3 with the new iOS application( SmartThings Samsung Connect V3)
When I use the Casa application, the status is not reported in Smartthings. When I use the SmartThings application, the status is reported correctly in the Casa application. When I swich on manually the WS200, the status is not reported in the Smartthings application.
I have done the same process as I did with my Lutron Caseta stuff that works perfectly.
Many WiFi switches do not report status when operated manually. You can often tell by checking the IFTTT channel: if there are no triggers, only actions, it’s quite likely the device doesn’t immediately report a change in state even to its own app.
Summarizing: In my opinion, the official integration works as expected and supports all of the devices (including the Range Extender/Plug). The expected quirks of using the new ST app to install aside, it also works as expected in the Classic App. Exception: Energy Monitor functions of the HS-300 and HS-110 do not work. I have updated the EM Device Handlers in my integration to support these functions in the new app - Power and Energy only, not statistics. My Recommendations:
Use the official integration for all your devices.
If you still have a use case for Energy Monitor functions, use my integration for those devices only.
Final Issue: Does the new official integration work will with rules and Applications like Action Tiles???
New here, so hope I am not out of place here.
Loaded 3 @ HS-100 into the new ST app, and they work there. However there are two issues.
A) ST classic shows the 3 devices, but seems to try and operate, but gives up (no error msg tho). Also when I try and open the device settings (gear icon) I get
“Somethings wrong” “We cannot load your screen right now.”
B) Action Tiles also shows the 3 tiles, which do toggle, but no error msg and no action from the plugs.
Both situations have existed for 2 days.
We should also mention that most people find one way integrations are OK for pocket sockets and in wall receptacles as long as you set up the voice assistant integration through SmartThings rather than through the native app. That’s because it’s pretty rare for someone to walk over to a pocket socket and push the button on it. So the one-way issue doesn’t usually cause a lot of problems.
However, A one way integration just isn’t enough for a wall switch because then you’ll be continually getting out of sync when people use the wall switch manually. And, of course, you won’t be able to set up a virtual three-way.
So I think satisfaction levels will depend very much on the specific devices involved, and on how you set up the voice assistant integration.
