Been using SmartThings for +2 years and now have+30 devices all over my house, and I love it! Mostly been trouble-free and I use it with Kasa, Lutron, Osram, Bosch, Wemo, etc.. devices, and when there are issues, the SmarThings community is pretty active and very helpful, and the Samsung reps were pretty good as well (but YMMV on that).

I'd get this if I didn't already have. Also, SmartThings compatible switches/bulbs/etc.. go on sale often so you can slowly build a decent smart home for cheap.

I've had a sensor living in my garage for 2 years and haven't had any problems with it at all. Set it up to turn on a light when it senses motion during night/early morning hours
Consider yourself lucky. Some of the sensors work fine, some of them suck. I have a motion sensor that works ok too and another one that looks exactly the same that burns through a battery in 3 weeks.

That's why I said hit or miss, I've tried out several different kinds of smartthings sensors and the results are inconsistent in terms of quality.

I've had this for a couple years and it works well. I buy individual Duracell. The pack of Panasonic off Amazon would be low battery very quickly.

Yeah the sensors are crap. What batteries are you guys buying for the sensors? I haven't had good luck with the ones I bought on Amazon. Panasonic CR 2450.
Unfortunately the form factor of some of the smartthings sensors won't work with duracell 2450 batteries (the negative side is too rounded off and doesn't make contact), something to be aware of, I learned the hard way, and you need to use panasonic. It could also be that the smartthings sensors suck, some of them burn through batteries in a few weeks and there is no solution other than trying to get a refund, or throwing them in the garbage.

No luck either. I end up wiring 2xAA battery pack to the sensors and mounting it to the wall. Works well since for the one sensor I've done this to. Others are a little tricky to do but will get to them when I get to them.
This sounds genius. I've love to move to AA for some of these sensors, they would certainly last much longer and you could use rechargeable batteries.

Smartthings+Lutron+Echo is a killer combination! I love it.

I just purchased the MyQ garage door controller (current SD deal for $30) & connected/set up to SmartThings and now my garage door (on my detached garage) automatically opens just before I arrive home and automatically closes after I leave. That might be one of the best features for me on this thing!

I have this kit and I can attest to the sensors being totally unreliable. Right now only 1 of my 4 sensors is working. At least one is permanently broken while 2 of the others require frequent resets in order to work.

The hub is nice (although it lacks wifi), but you are much better off with more reliable sensors. The motion sensor is rated 2.9 stars on Amazon and the door sensor is rated at 3.5 stars. So take the positive testimonials in this thread with grain of salt.

Hi guys. Is this really the older one without WiFi or is this the newer one with WiFi ? From the associated hub description for 67.99 it seems to be the latest one. What am i missing? Or is the hub newer but the sensors are older?

This is a toy and not for prod deployment. Please don't depend your security devices on this box. Look for more a reliable one.
