How to know if Smartthings goes offline?

Here is a question, is there a way we get notified if ST goes offline, like wifi our power goes out. I think the idea of ST is great, but they advertise it as a home security solution, but if a sensor goes dead, or power goes out and your whole system goes offline, there needs to be a way or implementation where you get notified of such.

Sounds simple to me, have the app be able to send update requests from the ST hub to see if everything is working and its online, for example.

I believe it’s already there. Under location in the IDE do you see Hub Offline Notification? Mine sends a text after a few minutes.

I don’t think it’s ready as a full-time security solution, as a supplement, maybe. Search for unreliability and you’ll probably get a few days worth of reading material ::smile:
