Change Smartthings cloud to Smartthing Fog computing?

Cloud will be load in the future
Smarthome will be active when no internet connection

It may happen sometime, but Samsung has not announced any plans in that direction.

If you are interested in something very similar to smartthings ( but from a very small company) which does operate locally without Internet, and you have a good technical background, you can take a look at Hubitat. A number of community members are now using both, getting the local operation from Hubitat. But it’s a very new product and rapidly evolving, so right now it’s essentially still in beta, one reason that you do need a strong technical background for it at this time.

Perfectly stated.

This is the setup that I recommend as well. The extra $100 you pay for the Hubitat Hub is worth it IMHO.

YMMV
