I’m not even sure this is the right section to post this, or even the right forum. I seem to be skipping from one place to another and getting passed to a third right after that. Let me just tell you about my situation right now.
I started buying a set of IKEA home smart devices a few weeks ago (I now have maybe 10-12 bulbs of varying kinds, I have 2 remotes and 2 motion sensors. I also bought a Google Nest Mini and I had from before I 2 chromecasts - 1 audio only and 1 normal. More over I also got at new Samsung TV with Smartthing, Airplay, AppleTv and all kinds of stuff built in. On top of this I came across a couple of cheap Deltaco RGB lights, as well a a pack of 3 smart plugs of the same brand.
I have managed to get pretty much everything online and I can have Google to do what I tell her to, in most cases. However, now all my iPads and iPhones a jam packed with different apps on account of all the different brands in my system and it’s just a huge mess. So I figured “Ill get one hub for everything” = enter SmartThings Hub V.3
It seemed to be the most compatible all in one-solution for me, and at this point I didn’t even know anything about smart apps or webCore, applets and so on. Then I realise the old Classic version is dead and I have to figure out what can I do with this thing now? My apps had no smart apps installed and I didn’t know where or how to find these little device handlers. I think you get the picture. I am so totally lost I I need some sort of list if things to begin with. Without being directed to another thread or forum before I now why I was there in the first place.
So please, exactly where do I start from scratch to to get my stuff to work all trough my ST hub? At this point I haven’t even managed to find a solution to, what I assume must be a no-brainer by now, intergrate the IKEA lightbulbs. That would be a start, at least. Sorry about this long rant, but I had to write it all out as i don’t find any answers on my fragmented ways of asking google and other search engines for help.
Thanks in advance, I hope I can get my head around all this eventually…
