Smartthings Hub

SmartThings Home Automation - #4 on Holiday Techie Fun Project List

Santa knows what I like! He brought me the Samsung SmartThings Hub and an outlet for the same.

It took me a little while to get the app to let me log in/register. I found the Samsung app for iOS to be pretty confusing. I’m still not sure that i’m getting it when it comes to working with the app. I understand that there are REST APIs so it may be worthwhile to look for better solutions.

The Arrival Sensor looks pretty cool. Also this is supposed to work with a whole bunch of differnt sensors supporting Z-Wave and Zigbee.
