My name is Todd and I'm a Hacker/Maker (Hardware/Software) of SmartThings. I saw the podcast last night which pointed me here, so I though I'd stop by and help get things rolling.
My twitter handle is @wackware, and my email is twack.....at.....wackware...dot...net.
I'll stop by here as often as I can. but you'll typically find me on the smartthings forums for sure. I'm looking forward to helping you guys out as much as I can. "Let's get this party started!" as they say.
We’re working on a thermostat built around a network of wireless battery-powered sensors. We just launched a Kickstarter and have been getting a lot of requests to integrate with SmartThings (and some votes for Ninja Sphere as well). We’d like to know if providing just our temp/humidity/motion sensor is valuable as a standalone Thing, separate from the full functionality of our system. What do you think?
SmartThings tweeted out this Amazon Lightning deal. Get the ST-SK-001 Know and Control Your Home Kit for $239.20 (normally $299).
Only available 11am EDT to 3pm EDT today.
Anyone used any z-wave light switches to turn on / off outdoor lighting? I have lights on my garage and front porch that use flourescent bulbs. They are controlled by a light switch in my front hallway of the house. I would like them to turn on at dusk and then turn off at a pre-determined time (say 11pm).
Anyone have any experience doing this? I need to use a switch that integrates to Smartthings. The lights outside are hardwired and use a special base (they are not screw in bulbs).
