I’ve got a few wifi enabled devices and recently SmartThings has been working very poorly with them.
A Wemo switch which has worked for the last couple of years with no problem has suddenly gone “offline” in the app - yet I can still send on/off commands manually in the app from SmartThings. The problem with this is automations won’t run properly as they think the switch is on when it isn’t as SmartThings just reports it as on all the time.
More importantly I have a Sonoff POW connected to my over night hot water boiler. It only powers up when my economy 7 circuit comes on at 1.30am. This means it is off in the day - but when it comes on, again SmartThings things it’s still disconnected and once again I can send on/off commands from the app to it - but it things the device is always on.
So my automation to turn the Sonoff device off actually works (it turns the device off) but SmartThings still reports it on, so when my automation to turn it on tries to happen at 6am it doesn’t run as it thinks the device is still on. I also don’t get any of the power reporting.
Is there a fix for this - other that avoid using wifi devices!
