Checking status

I modified a DH (Simulated temperature sensor) but in ST app in the tile I have always “Checking status” …

What is the problem?

How I can solve?

def initialize() {

def setTemperature(value) {
sendEvent(name:"temperature", value: value)

private getTemperature() {
def ts = device.currentState("temperature")
Integer value = ts ? ts.integerValue : 72
return value

What are you trying to accomplish?

I’m trying to do this …

The temperature value appears correctly at the Detail View?
This capability is configured to show the temperature and unit, as you didn’t include the unit property in the event, this could be causing the issue. The possible values are C or F. Eg.

sendEvent(name: "temperature", value: "45", unit:"F")

With your update the problem is fixed!

Thank you @nayelyz, thank you very much …
