Devices that Work with HomeKit and SmartThings

The Unofficial SmartThings Blog
Jump to: navigation, search

The following devices work with both HomeKit and SmartThings. Most of these are officially supported by SmartThings, but verify to be sure if that is important to you.

(Note that there are several companies like Fibaro, Sylvania, and Leviton that make different versions of their devices that may look identical, but where one model will work with SmartThings and a different model will work with HomeKit. So read specifications for each product carefully, don't just look for logos.)


Locks

August Pro

Requires August Connect Bridge

August Pro with Zwave

Cameras

Netatmo

Netatmo cameras have some HomeKit integration and there is a community-created device type Handler for them. community.smartthings.com/t/beta-netatmo-security/115560/

So no official integration, but you can have some shared control.

Outlets and Pocket Sockets

iDevices

Integration with SmartThings is via IFTTT. These devices are expensive, but well engineered, and have interesting features like a two socket outdoor Pocket-socket ( although they turn on and off together, not independently). They have an in wall receptacle were each socket is independently controlled as well as the usual plug-in pocket sockets.

Philips Hue Bulbs

Requires Philips Hue Bridge, 2nd Generation or Newer

Most Hue Bulbs and Light Strips

Manufacturer Product Page

(Note that at the present time the hue motion sensor, tap switch, and dimmer switch work with HomeKit but do not work with SmartThings through the hue bridge. There are community – created integrations that may let these devices work with SmartThings if they're connected directly to the SmartThings hub, but then they will no longer work with HomeKit. There are new community integration is being created all the time, but if you want one that also works with HomeKit it will need to be one where the devices are connected to the hue bridge.)

Switches

iDevices

Integration with SmartThings is via IFTTT. These devices are expensive, but well engineered, and have interesting features like their battery-operated accessory switch that can be placed anywhere. ( note that the accessory switch doesn't work on its own, it must be paired to another iDevices model. So it's essentially just a remote for that device.)

Logitech Smart Button (either/or, but not both at the same time)

Requires HomeKit-compatible Logitech Bridge

Pop Button (Large square rubbery battery-operated button in 4 colors)

This one is deceptive, because when you go to set up the Logitech POP bridge, you have to choose between either setting it up for HomeKit or setting it up for internet integrations such as IFTTT or SmartThings. So unlike the Phillips hue bridge or the Lutron Caseta devices attached to their smartbridge, it cannot work with both platforms at once. You have to choose one or the other. If you choose HomeKit, it will no longer work with SmartThings. If you choose SmartThings, it will no longer work with HomeKit. So it won't be what most people are looking for, but if you just want consistency in operation, you could have one pop bridge that works with HomeKit for one set of buttons and a different Pop bridge that worked with SmartThings for a different set of buttons. But each individual button will either work with HomeKit or with SmartThings but not both.

HomeKit integration no longer requires the separate WeMo Bridge for most models

WeMo WiFi Smart Light Switch

Sensors

iHome

Some iHome sensors now work with their IFTTT channel, which gives you some SmartThings integration, and can also work with HomeKit.

In particular, the iSS50 Multi sensor can report sound alerts, temperature threshold, lux threshold, or humidity threshold.

There are also some individual sensor models that work the same way: IsB01 motion sensor IsB02 leak sensor IsB04 open/close sensor
