Hi guys, I was planning to use Schlage Connect (from US) with SmartThings. Do I have to buy SmartThings from US for compatibility?

They’re using Z-Wave, and what’s the consequences if Malaysia found out we are using Z-Wave?

UK and US version are different Z-wave frequency.

At the moment, i do not use any Z-wave device. All my devices using Zigbee.

Nobody will find out as the range for z-wave device is quite limited.

The only problem of buying US hub is that, you will have difficulties in finding the right z-wave switch and plug later, as the US switches and plug only support 110 V, and it will blow when use in Malaysia.

Functional range is limited (50m for Zwave plus at best) but interference / detectable range will be a lot greater.

Here’s my plan for my homestay,

-buy Schlage Connect (the best lock so far, All i need it remote change password and it gets the job done.)
-place SmartThings near the door (less than 3m away)
-get a voltage coverter, around RM25 in Pudu.

Other than that, I will be using ZigBee for motion/light sensor.

I would love to get a ZigBee lock (Yale or Kwikset), but the support from community & price range ain’t as good as Schlage Connect.

Why don’t you get an UK version?
I’m using UK version without any issues at the moment.

Furthermore I think most of z-wave device in Malaysia using UK frequency.

it doesn’t compatible with Schlage Connect which is using 908.42MHz.

For the hub, don’t need voltage converter
