I have several door sensors in my garage (SmartThings Multi for the garage doors, and a SmartThings Open/Closed sensor for the back door) that keep ‘falling off the network’.
What I mean by this is that after a few days (or weeks), I will notice that SmartThings no longer knows the status of the door. It doesn’t update when I open or close it. When I look at it under the app’s “Things” section, all looks well, but the ‘activity’ button has nothing listed. When I look at it at ‘My Devices’ from the SmartThings website, I will see that it was last updated 2 months ago! It has clearly disconnected from the hub and never told me.
This is a pain in the butt because the only way to get it back is to uninstall the device entirely (which means going through all my apps and removing it first), then re-adding the device and re-adding to all my apps.
Is there any way the app can notify me if a device has had no activity for longer than say, 7 days? 30 days? Additionally, it’d be great if there was a way for me to “re-connect” a device so I don’t have to do that drop->re-add dance every so often.
