Gotcha. I used the Bond Home app with the bridge on beta firmware. Using the new SmartThings app I paired the Bond Home app to it. SmartThings app reported ‘successfully connected to Bond Home. Devices connected to this account can be controlled in SmartThings’.
However no Bond gateway or connected devices show in the SmartThings app
The Samsung Connect integration currently works only with “Smart by Bond ceiling fans”, however we are working on exposing the Bridge-assisted devices. We just fixed a firmware bug yesterday that was preventing the integration from working. Should be a matter of days now.
So you can’t use the SmartThings Classic app! Well if that is true, I can’t take advantage of this as I have too many custom DTHs and Smart Apps. If I am wrong please tell me how you paired the smart app with BOND Home.
I does sound like Bond is still diligently working on the integration. All that I can report on is my experience on the user end. It does appear, to me, that you will need to use the new SmartThings app to integrate/pair the Bond. However, that does not necessarily mean that the integration won’t work with the classic SmartThings app after the 2 systems are paired.
Samsung is not supporting the classic app by integrators like us. So, the strategy here is, a community member may create a (great) integration for the classic app and share it. This seems to work well for a number of other products.
So, the real announcement to look for from us is, Cloud API fully supporting Bridge-assisted devices.
Hey there, what Felipe means by “Smart By Bond” are smart ceiling fans and after-market receivers controlled directly by the Bond app, that were just released.
For now, our SmartThings integration doesn’t support devices controlled by a “Bond Bridge” (that is, the hub that most people are familiar with). It’s a bit confusing, but soon enough we’ll have all the integrations working for all devices on our platform.
