Vesternet Hardware Devices are supported in SmartThings via our Vesternet Edge Channel.

Vesternet Edge Channel

In order to make the Device Drivers available for your Vesternet Zigbee devices, simply subscribe to the Vesternet Edge Channel.

Here you can enrol your SmartThings hub to the Edge Channel and select which of the available Device Drivers to install.

Note that the Device Drivers are first release versions so while they might not be fully functional featuring all features and capabilities, they should be usable for their primary functions.

It should also be remembered that the SmartThings Edge platform itself is still under development and changes there may unintentionally break third-party Device Drivers.

Please report any issues with the Vesternet Edge Device Drivers by submitting a technical request ticket.

  • Reports battery level in the Device Details section of the App
  • Allows assigning of "Actions" for all button Events from the Device Details section of the App.
