Alexa device owners looking for an alternative to Philips/HUE in the smart home starter kit area will want to take a look at the Samsung SmartThings Hub and Outlet Bundle (UK visitors click here). Samsung lists over 100 smart home devices that are compatible with their SmartThings Hub, such as smart bulbs, switches, dimmers and outlets, smart locks, and more. Alexa can communicate with the SmartThings hub, and the SmartThings hub communicates with the various connected smart home devices. If you’d like to do some further research, see the Smart Things posts in the Home Automation subreddit for tips, questions and answers from Smart Things Hub owners.
