GE Zigbee Switches and Dimmers and Outlets

GE In-Wall Zigbee devices allow for convenient wireless control of LED, incandescent, and fluorescent lighting loads. With GE switches and SmartThings, you can schedule and automate your lights to turn on or off when you leave home, when there's motion in the hallway, when the sun sets, and so much more.

This article will tell you how to connect GE In-Wall ZigBee devices with the SmartThings Hub.

Note: If you have a GE Z-Wave device, follow these instructions for how to connect a GE Z-Wave device.
