I’m super new to Smartthings so might be missing something very basic. I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
I have a Smartthings Link plugged into an Nvidia Shield. The hub says it’s online. I have 8 Xiaomi Aqar door and window sensors in various areas of my house. All can be paired relatively easily from their doors and window locations using bsprangers device handlers, and they are work fine for about one hour. Then they become “unavailable” until I pair them again with the Smartthings Classic app. It doesn’t seem to be a range issue since all pair again with relative ease. I also have two wemo plugs and one wemo light switch that do not get disconnected from smartthings.
In some post somewhere I read that the problem may be that I’m using a Smartthings Link and buying a v2 hub would fix the disconnect problem. But now they have a cheaper v3 hub. Except I’m not sure if the v3 hub would fix the disconnect issue. Or maybe I need to get the Xiaomi hub? I have created a routine to work with Amazon Alexa to announce door/window openings and it works until it disconnects. I would like to keep this feature and the Xiaomi hub doesn’t work with Alexa, so I really would like to find a way to get these sensors to stay connected.
Any help or pointers would be much appreciated!
