Integrating Z-Wave with a SmartThings network enables you to easily stream all the devices at your home with the touch of a button, even if you are absent from your home.
The following devices are supported:
- water sensor
- multipurpose sensor
- carbon monoxide detector
- smoke detector
- motion sensor
The Smart Things outlet and iHome SmartPlugs both work with SmartThings, and both Wave + SmartThings both use the hub to communicate; you can simply say “Okay Google, what’s my inside temperature?” or “Okay Google, turn off the outside light,” and your request will be automatically obeyed.
You can incorporate remote sensors to monitor specific sections of your home. When the temperature in an area goes below a certain point, SmartThings can request that a heating function turned on in that room. In the summertime, the same type of command can be used to start the fans in your house. The multipurpose sensor, can issue a command to change the temperature.
You can use SmartThings to set up a specific routine to control several smart devices. As an example, for a night-time routine, you could tell:
- Your locks to lock themselves
- Your lights shut off
- Your thermostat to change temperature
Viewing the Bucket
Once you have your SmartThings integration enabled, you’ll be able to view your bucket to get an accurate reading of the events occurring across your network.
For example, you can see what the temperature is in your house. As time progresses, you will be able to see more information and real-time data. You will have a visual record of the activities taking place at your home.
Z-Wave allows you to manage and command devices with your voice, but The smart home network starts with a central hub, so you must first select a hub for your system. Once you’ve selected a hub, you will be ready to voice activate your light bulbs, thermostats, locks and other devices.
Monitored security systems are audited by a professional security organization. When the system discovers an emergency, it notifies the home security company and, if necessary, it contacts emergency responders.
