I recently purchased a small zigbee controlled power strip and connected it all up to realize that for some reason it’s running on the cloud instead of locally. I specifically purchased a zigbee strip as I’m trying to move everything off of cloud control.
Is there a different device driver I should be using? If so, how do I force this device over to that driver?
If it’s using an edge driver, it is running locally.
If you are looking at the IDE, that’s designed for the old architecture, and the information there on devices using edge drivers is often both inaccurate and incomplete. So it’s really not a very useful source of information anymore, except to get some old parameters and device details.
If when you open the SmartThings app the device indicates that it’s using a driver, then it’s local.
Hey JD, Thanks for that info. I’m still trying to wrap my head about how all of this comes together so it’s good to know I shouldn’t rely on the IDE to tell me the whole story.
Unfortunately, the dive is definitely not running locally. I get no little house icon when I set a routine for it and I don’t see the Driver option in the dropdown between the edit and information options like I do for other zigbee outlets I have connected to my ST hub.
Am I correct in thinking I need to look for someone that might have written an edge driver for this device. Then remove it, install the driver, and readd it?
