I have several smartthings sensors recently, and I have seen the “use device status” functionality in a menu option of the smartthings application of the smartwatch (samsung galaxy watch). From what I have read, if you activate that option, you can use the status of the clock as a condition in the “IF” of an automation, but I have activated that option in the smartwatch but in the smartthings application of the phone I do not get the smartwatch as a condition in an automation.
Is the “use device status” option of the smartwatch working?
Since I have activated the “use deveide status” option, a new “Mystatus” location has appeared on the “smartthings IDE” website with the smartwatch as a sensor, but I cannot include the smartwatch as a condition of an automation.
I Can not use the smartwatch in any automation as a presence but I’m able to control devices and scenes from the smartwatch.
The “use device status” smartwatch option creates another location in smartthings, at least in my case. I noticed it by checking locations in the smartthings ide. I guess that’s the reason why the status can’t be used as a condition on automations.
Not sure how to fix it, neither if it has to be like that.
I would take that reply with a grain of salt, or nothing at all. Support is COMPLETELY useless. It is like they have teenagers running the support desk.
I sent in a request about my Aeon Power Meter graphs not showing up and after supplying them the gauntlet of useless information they requested they just replied “we’ll pass this on to development to look at”
