I have a HUE hub and CASETA switches along with my SM hub. Since starting to use the new SM app I am seeing a massive number of duplicated devices . They sems to all be Hue or Nanoleaf, and all have a type called ‘placeholder’ when I look at them through the dev IDE.
Samsung has generally been of zero help on this - suggesting I delete them - which I do only to have then all return. I’d say they have an obvious bug or design problem in their handling of 3rd party hubs in the move to balance cloud and local handling but who knows.
The impact of this is that due to the number of devices I have, integrations with things like IFTTT and ALEXA can not be set up as the authentication and app approval time out. I also have a bunch of useless icons in the app but I created a room called ‘junkyard’ and dumped them all in that for now.
Anyone seeing a like problem or have suggestions? I am getting close to the point of spending the money and seeing if the Elevate hub wouldn’t be a better alternative given the rate as which the Samsung stuff seems to be deteriorating.
