I’m not even sure that my subject accurately reflects my question. A couple times I have seen someone recommend a webCoRE app and the response is that the user “wants to keep things native” or local within smartthings. I am just dipping my toes into smart home control. I have 1 lock and a few lights so far, and I am looking for more control (and notifications) of my lock. I already have webCoRE installed just so I could play around with pistons, but no apps really. I am considering either the smartthings smart locks app, which seems at best to have the most basic functionality, or using @ethayer’s Lock Manager to have full control of my lock, codes, notifications, etc.
My ultimate question is, what are the issues/risks/downsides to using a webCoRE app instead of something within the smartthings mobile app?
Thanks and sorry for my newb question.
