When building a smart home, figuring out what works with what is one of the most confusing parts. Another confusing part? Figuring out how connecting to one hub differs from connecting to another. Philips Hue being a great example. You can connect the bulbs to SmartThings directly or to a Hue hub. But as a member of the SmartThings Staff shares,

There’s a lot of cool stuff you can do with the Hue App that you can’t do via SmartThings.

So, when building your smart home, how do you know what’s best? A great first step is to learn from the experience of others. Below you will find information on device compatibility, and I invite you to share your experience in the comment section below.

Works with Nest

Saying something Works with Nest doesn’t necessarily mean it works with all Nest products. “Works with Nest” might mean that a product works with the camera, Nest Protect, Nest Thermostat, or the app.

Saying that it works with the app is also a little misleading. In some cases, this doesn’t mean that you can use the Nest app to control both products. Philips Hue is once again a good example. Though Hue “works with the Nest app”, you can’t control your lights from the Nest app. Instead, you can use the web portal to set some rules and Nest can tell Hue when your home is set to Away

Ultimate IFTTT Smart Home Guide

With IFTTT you can’t assume that the presence of a channel means you can do anything. I’ve learned this lesson the hard way many times. For example, I bought an OSRAM bulb assuming I could set it to turn a color based on Twitter activity. As IFTTT has both a Twitter and a SmartThings’ channel I assumed this was possible; I was wrong. I’ve also erroneously made the assumption that cameras with IFTTT channels should be able to record to Google Drive, also not always true. Beyond the presence of an IFTTT channel, you need to dig into the possible triggers and actions. And if you want greater flexibility beyond 1+1=2, you might want to ditch IFTTT in favor of Stringify, though the two now technically work together.

So what are triggers and actions? They are the ingredients in a two-part recipe known as an applet. IFTTT glues things together in an If This Then That format. If (Action from Connected Channel) Then (Trigger from Connected Channel). In some cases, you might be asked to take it a step further. For example, with SmartThings’ Switched On trigger, you will need to specify the device you want to use.

Works with Amazon Alexa

Vivint and Amazon Echo

With Amazon Alexa enabled devices (Amazon Echo, Dot, Tap, Spot, Show, etc.), you can connect to other smart home devices either through a direct integration or by using a skill. Integrating is easy, remembering what to say isn’t always that simple. Regardless, using your voice to control your home is pretty sweet.

A second option is to purchase Echo Plus. Plus offers all of the same features as Amazon Echo but it also has a built-in smart home hub so that you can connect to select devices directly.

What Works With HomeKit?

HomeKit has lagged behind other home automation integrations. Unfortunately, making a device Homekit-compatible isn’t as easy as integrating with IFTTT or Alexa as it requires a tedious certification process. However, Apple is working to make the process easier by scratching the hardware requirement and replacing it with a software certification.

That said, Apple is making progress and now boasts a rather extensive list of HomeKit compatible devices. The major benefit to HomeKit beyond voice control is that it’s hub-less, kind of. First of all, some devices may require their own hub. For example, Philips Hue. Secondly, you’ll need a “hub” if you want to control your HomeKit devices while you’re away from home.

HomeKit doesn’t have a dedicated hub. Instead, you’ll need an Apple TV 4 or 4K running the latest tvOS, an iPad running iOS 10.3 or later (best if kept plugged in), or a HomePod (coming soon).

Google Assistant

Google Assistant may have been last to market, but with lightning speed, they’ve managed to catch up. Google has several new security and smart home-related integrations. But what makes Google Assistant-enabled options interesting is their ability to distinguish one voice from another and their ability to access different accounts.

For example, if you ask Google Home to call your mom, it will call your mom. If your son asks Google Home to call his mom, it will call his mom. This same level of personalization can be tied to your smart home preferences, making Google Assistant one to watch.

Like Alexa, Google Assistant, Google Home’s AI, is accessible on multiple devices including Google Home, Google Max, Mini, and even Nest Cam IQ. In the future, it will also be available in third-party smart speakers, TVs, and cars.

    That is a very useful and detailed table that you have made for many of the biggest smart devices on the market (and how they integrate with IFTTT). It also demonstrates how complicated IFTTT can be!

    FYI while it is somewhat unofficial, in the official smartthings app WEMO light switch, motion, and switch are all supported in smartthings under “labs”. I added my devices in and they work very well.

      Adding a section for SmartThings labs is a great idea. That’s something I’ll put on my list.
