Greetings Fellow Home Automation Enthusiasts!
Problem: The “SmartThings Classic App” was discontinued on October 14th and users have been forced to migrate to the new app. The Gentle Wakeup smart app is currently not present in the new app, and I can not find any similar feature set in any of the other smart apps.
Requested Functionality: Add a Smart App that gives users the ability to select a group of smart lights and have them all go from <Current Level or Input Brightness %> to <End Input Brightness %> over . Sequence is initiated by a .
Wishlist Functionality: Ability to select color temperature or RGB color of lights during gentle wakeup sequence. Ability to change to specified Color Temperature or RGB color at the end of the gentle wakeup sequence.
I know this topic has been discussed many times before in other threads, but since the SmartThings “classic app” was recently discontinued and I am now SOL I wanted to make a new thread to bring awareness to this problem. Does anyone know the best way to get in touch with the Smart Things developers to get this issue resolved? I think this is something that could be easily added to the “Smart Lighting” Smart App as it seems the framework is basically already there.
This has been an instrumental part of my mourning routine since 2016, so not having this functionality any longer has really put a huge strain on my mornings. I am basically at the point where I am willing to try anything to get this to work. Although I would truly like to avoid a “code it yourself” or “automation plugin” option, I am getting rather desperate. If anyone has what I have explained above working using the new app, I will literally pay you to write a guide and post it in the comments below explaining how to set it up step by step. Whatever it takes, just need this feature back ASAP. I’m extra cranky in the morning now and my roommates poor roommates are being forced to suffer my wrath. LOL
Any comments / suggestions appreciated to bring awareness to this.
PLEASE COMMENT BELOW IF YOU WANT THIS FUNCTIONALITY BACK.
