I recently had to rebuild my smartthings hub nearly from scratch after my v2 hub died suddenly. I got everything back together over the long weekend and for the most part my system is better than ever, except one nagging issue.
I have 2 sets of every hue device in smartthings. One seems to be coming from the hue hub integration, all lights show up as lights and work perfectly, the other I’m not sure about. I had to use the new smartthings app to get hue working, and it did not go as smoothly as I recall setting it up years ago on my v2. There were two options, hue with smartthings and hue without smartthings. It’s unclear what either option actually means.
Anyhow, the other set of hue devices show up at switches and all report as unavailable, I’ve deleted them from the new app and the IDE and they always come back after a day.
They’re either auto discovered in the new app or found immediately if I go to add a device in the classic app.
They’re labeled as a placeholder in the IDE and located in the cloud, the working set of hue devices show up as local.
This is driving me nuts, I can’t figure out what is adding them, whether it’s an integration or a problem with Hue.
Anyone else come across this? Searching hasn’t been much help.
