Logitech Harmony & Smartthings now works in the UK

Update – This post is old and no longer applies as Logitech Harmony has now been officially supported in the UK for over 18 months now

Samsung have finally fixed the OAuth Problem for the Logitech Harmony UK Servers since SmartThings release in the UK its been a annoying process of making the Harmony work with SmartThings and to be honest it still is as Samsung takes ages to add compatible products to the UK marketplace so the only way is though the IDE.

I added SmartThings to the Harmony iOS app first – selected my ST hub location and then enabled the devices I wanted. That worked OK (although it’s easy to overlook the spinner select for location at the bottom of the screen).

I then added the Logitech Harmony (Connect) SmartApp in the ST IDE ‘My SmartApps’ – enabled oAuth in the ‘App Settings’ and then ‘Publish’ (For me) … and then I did the same for the Logitech Harmony Hub C2C device in the Device Handlers and ‘Publish’ (For me). I did not have to edit either code in any way (for example to change the EU server address).

Then using the ST app via ‘My Apps’ in ‘SmartApps’ I entered my Harmony account details – it authorised (a bit slowly) and then found my hub and my activities (again a bit slowly) which I could then add to ST. My hub then appears as a device using my new device handler in the ST IDE and I have control from ST.

    Thanks for the great write up. I am unable to proceed beyond the point where the error message ‘you appear to be having issues with your network…” Kindly advise how you managed to proceed after clicking DONE to complete. I am stuck at that point.

      Hi sorry for not getting back to you I seem to find the problem with the Harmory and Hue Connnect Apps is if you try to import too many activities at one you get the message “‘you appear to be having issues with your network” try importing a few at a time. I first thought you have to keep all the activities ticked but that’s not the case its just a importer
