    Ive had the v2 since its realease and have built my HA system over the years with nearly 5k invested automating everything. Im concerned that the new connect app that is being phased in does not currently allow the vast amount of 3rd party apps ie, webCoRE, askalexa, big talker, any many others, that govern my entire houses intelligence. Is there no discussion on this matter or are people just now trying home automation in 2018. Nice video though i think ill hold on to the v2 for a little longer

    So would you recommend v3 if you already have v2? Sounds like the v3 went back a few steps in compatibility. The only thing appealing Ive heard so far is that it can be used wirelessly. No nest or sonos compatibility troubles me

    Hi, I am new to SmartThings. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+ that has the SmartThings app installed. Do I need a hub to be able to control/receive info from all these sensors? What is the protocol being used, how does it work?

    Battery is draining fast in my version 3 multipurpose sensor on my living room window…any explanation as to why? It isn’t far from the Hub…15 feet…also, how do i open the battery compartment on the multipurpose sensor?
