Where Are Other SmartThings UK Users Located?

Thought seeing as we are a relatively small island would be good to know if there were other Smart Thingers near by…

So perhaps a thread for where we are in the country with our ST deployments?

Thanks @AutomateEverything. I have lots of ideas on things to do, from apps to automation projects, however my coding skills are not the best (I know a bit) so would be great to have people to work with to bring things to life!

Snap still on US V1 also, deciding wether to get a US or EU V2 once they have ironed out the oustanding issues . . . Strongly depends on how much the UK/EU Zwave device options picks up as currently its minimal compared to US
