I think this is a great deal on a fine base set of devices to get started. I would recommend this in a heartbeat.

I first bought a couple osram lightify garden strips from a slickdeal about a year ago, then I got the osram controller. This worked adequately and gave me nice scene control over those lights that I liked.

Then I wanted to expand my setup, but pretty quickly realized that the osram hub doesn't do much and only controls their devices. So I switched to SmartThings and I love it. Right now, I have my ST hub control those lights (i've gotten rid of that simple controller), a couple WeMo wall rocker switches, another osram RGB bulb (this was expensive!), a couple CREE Connected bulbs (these seem to be the best general price dimmable light bulbs), two SmartThings motion sensors (these are great), two Bosch motion sensors (these are pretty terrible), a motion sensor for a possible leak in my attic, a bunch of door and window sensors, a garage door sensor, a few plugs, a z-wave door lock, and a cool doorbell. My and my wife's phones are set up as presence detection sensors.

All of this stuff is pretty sweet. I have a lot of automation and routines set up that do things I really like and the SmartThings community and API make it all work nicely.

I have exterior lights turn on when I open my doors at night.
I can control many of the lights in my home by talking to my Google Home.
I have a difficult-to-reach light in my garage turn on automatically when I open my garage door.
I have the moisture sensor up in my attic in a spot where I was concerned there was a leak over winter (it never found evidence of the leak).
When I'm away from home in the morning, I can see a log of the door being opened and know what time my maid left.
I can tell when my door was unlocked with different lock codes to know whether it was unlocked and which code (who) unlocked it.
When both my and my wife's phones "leave" (are no longer detected as a presence sensor), I have most of the lights automatically turn off and the door locks.
When my doors open, my doorbell plays a chirping bird sound.
When my windows open, my doorbell plays a different chirping bird sound.


Overall - I love it.

hmmm - this triggered my "smartthings" alert. This does seem like a decent deal.

I have to wonder if a new hub is on the horizon...

I missed the hub for $50 a few months ago. I guess if you add on the retail price of the bulbs and the sensor, this makes it about that price.

Is this the second gen hub?

Any one care to comment on Wink 2 vs Smart things; beyond the fact that the smart things app is not as intuitive?

I have a Nest Thermostat, a smart irrigation controller from Rain Machine, if that has any bearing.

I got this kit at $109 on memorial day sale. It is a good deal. The hub is v2 and light bulbs are dimmable only. (Not tunable white ver.) FYI, bulbs also work with 220v/60hz.

I have smartthings, not sure if I would choose it again over Wink if I had to start over. Yeah, the community is great, but Wink seems to have more Official support and features of the supported items. At least the few I tried.

Having tried wink the lack of support for lesser known/3rd party z wave devices was infuriating. My Vera's interface is jurassic in comparison, but the Vera at least works with nearly all my devices. I'm tempted to take this deal as I want a ST hub, but the lightbulbs are kind of useless to me as I have a bunch of switches already.

smartthings having an open api is a definite advantage. Support for the broadlink rm pro was added via a third party who wrote code to incorporate the device into smartthings....others have written custom device handlers for other devices. Once a device is available in smartthings it can be controlled via alexa. I have not heard of anything comparable with wink.

Well...it's requires more setup....but has more functionality....the broadlink is a chinese device that sells for around $30-$40...it does both IR and RF on 315mhz and 433mhz which means it works with all those cheap chinese rf devices like the wireless "dumb" outlets from etekcity that you can get in a 5 pack for $21 vs the regular smart ones that still run around $10-$20 each. The ir portion can be setup to go to a certain channel or turn various devices on and off...I have 3 in my house so I can control IR devices in different rooms. You do have to have an app running on an android device (firestick, android tv, old phone whatever) that can receive the commands from smartthings (via it's hub for best security but there is a version that doesn't even require a hub if your willing to open a port on your firewall to forward the requests to the app)..the smartthings code tunnels the requests into your local lan via the hub so no open port is required.

The logitech one tends to run at least $75 from what I've seen but as a one trick IR pony apparently does a great job with the tv and other devices.

It all depends on which way you want to go with it. Buying the broadlink and some of those etekcity outlets (15 or so) and then making them smart was loads cheaper when at the time smart outlets were $25-$30 each. There are also other devices such as ceiling fan controllers, light bulb smart outlets etc that can be controlled as well.

The two line synopsis is this...if you like to tinker a bit, the broadlink's give you ALOT more functionality but if you are setting this up for your parents be prepared to do all the heavy lifting implementing it for them so it's "talk and click" or get them the logitech.

I also got the hub for around $50. I also got a couple Xiaomi motion sensors for less than $10 each. Not sure if the light bulbs really worth $15 each.

Harmony only supports IR i believe whereas RM Pro supports IR+RF. Even price wise, Harmony ($60+), RM Pro is 35 dollars. If you just need IR then there is RM mini, which is 10 dollars.
Harmony doesnt need any bridge for smartthings integrations whereas RM pro will need android device running RM Bridge app. I use fire tv stick.
I have 2 RM pro and 1 RM mini to cover complete 4000sqft house. It needs some basic skills to integrate but once done, its really reliable (atleast for me, running from last 1 yr now).

I have even programmed my portable AC, fan, tv and many other devices which are not directly supported by smartthings. Also using RF signal for etekcity outlets, some old X10 outlets, one RF doorbell which rings if my ring doorbell ringing.
