Android 2.1.5 - Release Notes

SmartThings 2.1.5 for Android has been released into the Play Store and should be available for you to update.


  • Fixed crashes for devices that have parent SmartApps
  • Several misc. crash fixes
  • Fixed issue for scrolling in rooms with a large number of devices
  • Fix for 1x1 tiles not showing text
  • Fixed issue that kept users from configuring custom monitoring rules in Smart Home Monitor
  • Fix bug that caused a subset of users to now be able to select photos
  • Fixed marketplace icon loading errors

-Still can’t pick standard ST icons for room photos.
-SHM does seem faster to load.
-SHM still can’t delete past/old events, especially false alarms. Should be able to clear the list.
-SHM Right Now tab still don’t show status of all assigned sensors, missing leak and smoke detection sensors, only shows motion and doors.
-SHM home page still has large green/red header status section, thus causing an unecessary scroll to see all individual statuses.
-Seems stable so far, no real noticeable cosmetic updates.

I’d agree with that point about not having just a list of standard off the shelf stock photos for rooms. Why did I have to google samsung smart photos download them, transfer them to my phone and then set them from the app individually ?

Shouldn’t there just be a list of stock room photos and you pick one of them ?


Agree with @Roy_Donaldson and @jimmay3 on the stock photo’s for rooms.

Not sure what this was supposed to fix but is it related to missing icons? Wasn’t there a wall light switch icon before?

Thanks for the update! Still have a severe issue with the Family -> SmartApps -> “Notify Me When” event. Every few days I stop getting text alerts of when my daughter arrives home (her phone is in-range of the hub). To correct it, I found that I have to go to ‘her’ phone (not mine or reset any device) and open the event and simply click “Done”. Somehow this re-saves/updates the event on Smarthings servers and the notification starts working again. If I do this on my phone alone it doesn’t seem to resolve it.

Very much dislike that I have to keep doing this. Hope someone is able to take a look into this and confirm it happens to others. Also hoping that the mobile app gets updated to change user privileges so family members aren’t able to see/change settings in the first place.

Kind Regards

Tablet text and graphics a mess with overlays and missing…

So far this is much better, thank you.

Is there EVER going to be a return of rearranging/reordering devices in Things section and not just Rooms? It just seems like such a half baked app with such glaring inconsistencies. But I understand being under resourced so if I had to place my vote I would keep the resources at adding entry/exit delays on SHM as a priority.

ST is adding exit/entry delays to SHM yes?

And you also broke HREF in dynamic pages once again. Can’t seem to understand why it’s so hard for the team to make a list of test cases based on stuff they broke in the past, this is regression (at it’s worst!).

@kleneau - comments please


How about fixing multiline text on valueTiles?

this is Android 2.14 just updated, status tells me that as of today, June 2, that 2.15 is not available

All lowercase turns to upper case, and I cannot create a multiline text using \n or \r



I noticed with this build that the app now only opens to the Dashboard; the previous build would remember the last screen you were on and open to it ( i.e. My Home ) on next launch.

Much prefer the previous behavior.

More continued regression…

Just tried this now and it is opening to the last opened section for me. Any details you can give to help me reproduce this would help us track it down.

I have a Nexus 6p on the latest android version (6.0.1 may security release) and I have never noticed this feature at all. I always see the SHM dashboard instead of going to My Home which I use constantly. Just now I opened the app went to “My Home” hit the home button, relaunch the app and I am back to the dashboard. Same thing happens if I hit the back button to close the app.

This appears to be a data corruption issue. After a closer look, the only screen not being remembered is “my home”. Clearing the mobile app cache did not change the behavior, but clearing the app data and logging in again did.

Nexus 6P/Android 6.0.1 build MTC19T

Good to know. I’ll report it none the less. Thanks for the update.

Nexus 6p here as well.

It didn’t take long for this behavior to resurrect itself, and since others are seeing it as well, I’m guessing you’re munging the data that is saved somewhere.

Had our engineering team look into this. Using the previous example you provided us we aren’t seeing an issue. Please submit a support ticket with details.


Thanks for looking into this, I’m updating the same on the page. The only difference between the previous sample and the new one is that the for loop is inside the section where as in the previous examples it outside.
