Ghost/phantom routine running

(Ronald Balu) #1

I have a phantom routine running that is frustrating me and I don’t know how to delete it. I started making it in the ST app and realized I wanted more options so I backed out in the middle of making it and decided to create a Webcore piston instead. How ever it looks like it was made anyway and is not even on my list of routines . Any one know a simple way to get rid of this without deleting me hub or devices

Keep an eye on it. Did you trace the source of the event through the IDE events list?

It could be an automation set up in an app like Smart Lighting. You could check the recent tab of the device “Night Light” was controlling, if it actually changed the bulb/light. See what changed the bulb and then go to the smartapps tab ofthe device and click on the automation to open it. You usually can delete it from where it was made.

If a device wasn’t actually changed, then you can try to trace it through the event log in the IDE as @RBoy said. I have found the recent changes in the IDE have made it less “user friendly”.

Thanks guys, I definitely remember making it through the smart things app I was able to find it and delete by going into the lights history. I don’t know why I didn’t show up in the routines list but I’m happy it’s now gone. Thank you for your help

It didn’t show up as a “Routine” because it was a SmartApp instance (an instance of “Smart Lighting”) not a Routine.


Have you tried to deleted it through the IDE webpage?
