I just want the Ring Floodlight to work with SmartThings :frowning:


I just want presence working reliably, and full local processing including SHM.

I could settle for peace on earth if neither are fulfilled. :slight_smile:


Thats unfortunate to hear that they sill haven’t gotten that integrated yet. I guess a ring 1.0 doorbell + 2 smart floodlights could work as a sudo ring floodlight :slight_smile:

Has to be backup/restore for me.
I have so many apps & non-standard config I would probably give up if I had to rebuild


The NUMBER 1 'requirement ’ for Samsung’s Smartthings platform is backup/recovery/upgrade and/or hub replacement process. These issues are all intertwined and I continue to be amazed by this failing. I can tell you from someone with over 30 years in IT this is totally unacceptable. There are unfortunately many Smartthings users who have obviously invested a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears in this platform. In my humble opinion, there should be no other further development of this platform until a solution has been delivered. Off my soapbox for now.
