Works As SmartThings Hub (WASH)

I got this email this morning.

I wonder if this means you can use a 3rd party device i.e. an RPi with a HAT that handles all the protocols?
Or this is only a means for licensing it so other manufactures i.e. (companies that make WAPs) to incorporate SmartThings into their product.

Tagging @SmartThings

WASH is partner companies only. I’m not the guy who would be the first to know, but AFAIK we don’t currently have any actual plans around releasing something for DIYers to self-host.


so what’s new vs 2017?

Not sure, I’m not directly involved with WASH, but it sounds like the topic of the talk is a “What’s New” update.


Sounds like Smartthings Extend… again… to me.
