I am using the CT100 Thermostat device handler for my CT101 and the battery status is no longer displaying in the Smartthings app since the upgrade to the new app. I have communicated with Smartthings support and they told me this is a known issue but they have no timeframe for a fix for the defect in the new app.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how to work around this problem? It is a pain to go into the IDE to get the battery status for the device versus just going into the app to check the battery status.
Perfect. I am not sure why Smartthings support didn’t suggest that back in March when they told me it was a known issue.
I used your steps but also made a backup coy of the device handler namespace before editing and updating it. Call me anal but I don’t like to mess with the original that was working, I would rather have it to fallback on if something goes wrong.
I understand you, but with those steps you do not change anything in the DTH, you only make it execute, in this case, the same version of DTH and forces the device configuration to be executed.
If it is a device with local execution, it happens to run in the cloud, nothing more.
You can also use the self published version.
Marked as a solution in case someone looks for the same problem
I’m glad it works for you

You can try to reset the device handler. Also if you have access to rboy apps try this device handler which allows you access to advanced feature on the thermostat and also fixes a few bugs in the thermostat firmware:

Execution Location Cloud versus Local <<< this is the difference other than the id number
You mentioned local versus cloud execution. I have 10 zigbee plugs. 9 of them show as local execution, 1 shows as cloud. Any idea why 1 of them is showing as cloud? Any idea how to make it local like the rest?
