Hi all. Brand new ST user here, My goal, for now, is use the contact/multipurpose sensors to tell me when windows/doors are opened and closed.
I started with a Samsung multipurpose sensor. Got that paired, but it never proactively updates to tell me when the contact was open or closed - it continue to report the same state until I go do a different page. As in, if the contact is closed, the status will show as closed even if I open the contact. If I then go into device details it will show as open, and stay open (even if closed) until I return to the dash/devices page. If I close it and change the page it will report correctly.
This isn’t working as expected.
So I went to Lowes and picked up an Iris contact sensor to see how it would behave and it is behaving the exact same way.
I removed/repaired everything. Reset the hub, tried different ports on my router (yes, long shot…) I also set up an automation to alert me when the status changes, but that doesn’t work either.
Is this behavior by design or is something not right?
