I’m wondering if there is a way to set up mobile phone presence from the IDE (rather than from the SmartThings app itself).
Pretty sure it has to be done on the actual device. ( because otherwise that would be a huge security issue.) @slagle should know.
Yep, also, we wouldn’t have a way to know what the unique ID for the phone is so the platform can identify them
No, and Yes. For example, some of the clients, and depending on the version, will or will not allow you to setup mobile presence without a hub. I found a way around that. I would setup a phone with mobile presence at my house that had a hub, and copy the id (be sure to change the id portion for the location, because that part changes for each location) to the new location that does not have a hub. I found this out by playing around…I needed a way to let my family know I am leaving work, where I have no hub.
What clients will / will not? I will try your suggested approach. Thanks.
I think this might need some rework - I much prefer the way how homekit/homebridge does it …
you can just add a hostname, MAC or IP address and check for its existence … reliable and simple … I was wondering if we could create a device handler like that @slagle
