Continuing the discussion from Sunrise/Sunset Setting Not Working:
As @Brad_ST stated in the other topic, Hello Home and the Weather Station app used to installed by the Classic App as default, but it seems to be not happening for many users who start with the new App.
I see a conflicting communication regarding the Limits and Guardrails (Scenes and Automations) FAQ: Limits and Guardrails (max # of automations, devices, etc) and Smart Lighting and other SmartApps. As my understanding the Scenes and Automations would use the “behaviours” what has a limitation (might due to the coming local processing), but if someone uses SmartApps or rule engines like WebCoRe or Sharptools.io that is less limited (only number of SmartApps, calls etc. https://smartthings.developer.samsung.com/docs/rate-limits.html but even these limits seems to be incorrectly listed as some users has seen different values being active, like number of rooms, @jkp).
Anyhow, seeing a lot of new topics popping up from new users who are struggling setting up basic automations I need to ask how is the way forward on the roadmap?
The Hello Home SmartApp is one of the most significant part of many SmartApps, basically for defining through the Weather Station sunrise and sunset, but many relies on it for Mode changes too. But as it is not installed anymore in many cases as default, the functionality of Smart Lighting is limited in many ways. But building Scenes and Automations the same feature is burning quickly the behaviours too.
So what is the current plan, how is this conflict planned to be resolved in the future? I thought that @Brad_ST have done a lot for the community fixing Hello Home SmartApps, but really that is a temporary solution. And as he has pointed out before,
But now you have me questioning how sunrise/sunset automations for Smart Lighting created in the new app would ever work…
How the current SmartApps are going to be supported, when basic features are removed and not replaced yet with equivalent ones?
