One of the problems I am having with SmartThings is finding the ‘best’ solution to a common problem. I read the forums regularly and often stumble upon a great solution to something, but then later when I need it, I can never find it.
For example, I bought the new GE Link bulbs over the weekend because I remember reading about how cheap they are and that they work without an extra hub. I screwed in the bulb and added it as a ‘Thing’ on my phone, but it didn’t work. Then I remembered reading that there was a special step you needed to do afterwards to get them to work. I had a hard time finding that thread again.
It would be super simple and awesome if we had a wiki that was a single source for this type of info.
The google docs list of working devices would be great on a wiki also.
Just seems like a no brainer for the community. Has this been thought of before?
I think the smartthings community has a ton of great info, but it’s so disjointed and hard to find. I wish there was a little more formal way of organizing this. Maybe a select few forum regulars could have write access?
