I am trying out Smart Things and Wink. I really like ST, but Winks Interface is so much easier to use. I am hoping there are some tweaks that can be suggested for ST.
I really like ST for these reasons:
1.) Solid Community Support
2.) ZWave, ZigBee, IP Support is great. Really responsive when turning devices on and off.
What I do not like, and I am hoping there are some workarounds:
The screens/tiles are not intuitive
- Is there a way to make the shortcuts/screens more intuitive?
- Why can’t the icons be named? If you have many devices it’s hard to find them. It would be nice to go into SmartThings and see easily by room or type a list of controllable items.
- Also dimming. With Wink you can just slide across an icon to dim, With ST you have to go into settings of each device.
Any help would be nice. I am really trying to stay with SmartThings.
