Found 11th Mar
The Samsung Smart things products are on at half price. The kit is out of stock everywhere it seems, but the hub and single items aren't. I reserved the hub and a couple of motion sensors.
Anyone have any experience with it? I haven't paid yet, so any input would be appreciated.

cheers ordered a further motion sensor
Just buy the hub and order xiaomi sensors from gearbest etc. Cheaper and work as well if not better. Hub seems out of stock now everywhere I can look at.

I don't like the idea because they require an internet connection to work, unlike things like Hue bridges.
The kit isn't available because the Power Outlet is a potential fire hazard when connected to a device that draws a lot of power

Currys price match?
Hot if you can find them!
Yup out of stock manchester area

I think that was early ones. I had to return mine for that very reason and was sent a substitute which didn’t display the same issue. I think I swapped them over 2 years ago

Interesting - I've keeping an eye out for more sockets, but wondered why I couldn't source any. I have two, one for the upstairs TV, and one to my kettle. Both seem to working fine, so far

Is there a way to identify affected products?
Thanks. I've replaced the motion sensors with the the Xiaomi ones from gearbest because the Samsung ones constantly give false alarms
Anyone know what plug sockets work with this other than the Samsung one? Will Wemo switches work? What are the best light bulbs for it? Thanks in advance. Have some heat! Great spot and price.
Buying this allows home control with Bixby!

WiFi switches will work via IFTTT but not directly
Maybe not comprehensive, but a good place to start

Depends on device/sensor - some routines run locally, nor via server.
I have the hub working with the xeomi door sensors, works a treat but how do i get an alarm when the contact opens, I have not found a sounder that is compatible yet. If someone gets in my shed in the night I get a text but need something to wake me?
New model out soon hence sale
Bargain! Makes Amazon's Alexa so much better by reducing what you beed to say to get things to work.
Shame that the hub is out of stock as I would've been keen to try the product. (Currently using Homekit but recently moved to Android).
Hot. great kit works very well integrating other smart devices
Great kit, just a shame different wireless technologies don't all talk to each other e.g. different brand security cameras.

Same as what I do but there's rumours they're doing a lot of 3rd party custom device handlers when they've finished the migration thing they're doing... 😥

Don't know if it's official information for general public. I'm working with a third party company that will sell the newer version. Don't know what the differences are, just that they look different.

What do you mean "They're doing a lot of 3rd party custom device handlers?" Surely thats a good thing?
What we need is one bloody hub that works with everything, zigbee, zeewave, the bloody lot.

Lol sorry typo there..
I meant they're doing away with some custom device handlers.

SmartThings does do Zwave & zigbee
But there's the Hubitat hub that's getting good reviews as it can all be done locally.

As above, SmartThings does do both of these. The "problem" is that ZigBee is not a universal standard like Z-Wave is. Manufacturers can create their own custom versions of the ZigBee protocol. Hence why a lot of ZigBee kit is not compatible with other ZigBee kit.

Any two Z-Wave devices can talk though, as long as there's a device handler.

All of my SmartThings automations work locally. There are lots that don't though, sure.

If you have sonos / Alexa you could use webcore to do that, you set them to play / say something when a door opens. I had mine set to say 'System armed, miniguns online' and play a tone repeatedly unfortunately I forgot my sister had a key!

Thanks, will look in to this, cant believe they do all these sensors but no sounder
Any way of using this with the Philips Hue hub or using Hue bulbs with the Samsung Hub. With all these hubs we are all going to need modems with a rack of Ethernet sockets soon. Any energy we save by turning things off will be sucked out by half a dozen white boxes :P

I was looking into Home Assistant but too much faffing for someone like me who wants plug and play.

Looked into hubitat, looks interesting. One box to rule them all

Yeah looks promising.
But it's still early days for them and there's no apps out yet for it so you control everything from a browser. 😧
But it's apparently created but ex SmartThings Devs and uses groovy so similar to SmartThings.
If I'm going down the local not cloud home assistant hassio route do I need one of these hubs, I've got Xiaomi hub and sensors already? By the way you can get the hub for £44 ish code smart10 at Currys

Hi, I have got the hub from this deal, can anyone suggest a light bulb? The Philips one requires the Philips bridge, are there any that work directly with the Samsung hub?
