I added a Zen Thermostat back to SmartThings that I had moved to another platform in order to test this firmware update. Unfortunately, that was before I read this post. But I see it’s in yesterday’s update still. Is it still a problem? If it’s not believed to be a problem, I definitely have some: most of the “smart” functionality on my thermostat no longer works after upgrading, including changing the setpoint, and changing the mode to/from off/heat/cool, or properly reading the idle/heating/etc. states (“idle” actually does seem to be read correctly, but I’m not sure about the rest). Functions that do seem to work include the reporting of the current temperature, changing the fan state (auto vs. on, though I’m not sure the tile properly updates), and battery reporting.
If this is supposed to be working now, I guess this is my report that it’s not. Otherwise, hopefully we’ll have a new update that will restore this functionality or the ability to downgrade to a working version.
Note that we’re still not releasing the beta firmware to Zen thermostat users in light of the issues reported by @BertABCD1234. We’re investigating that issue now and will let you know when we have a path forward.
Title : Manually using any zwave device does not update the mobile app or the IDE
I’ve tested with almost ALL of my zwave switches, and the results are the same. Here are just a few so far:
Nook Ceiling Lights
Guest Room Fan
Screened Porch Fan (Leviton)
Screened Porch Fan Lights (Leviton)
Master Bedroom Reading Lights
Master Bathroom Mirror Lights (and every other zwave switch in the Master Bathroom Group)
etc, etc, etc
This is happening on any kind of GE zwave device I have (brand new or old: zwave, zwave plus, dimmers, fan controllers), as well as my Leviton device. I believe my Aeon micros too, but I can’t verify.
I honestly don’t know when this started but I just noticed this morning. Using the device manually works fine, but it does not update in the IDE or mobile app (Classic).
If I tap on the refresh tile in the mobile app, the IDE will update and so will the mobile app. Seems like the Refresh tile must be used to properly reflect the device’s state.
This is easily repeatable. Going to need some help on this one guys because I’ve never seen this behavior before.
EDIT : Looks like my Linear garage door controller is doing this too.
EDIT : Looks like my August Pro Lock is doing this too (Front Door Lock)
Without knowing proper device states, ALL my automations and SmartApps are currently unreliable and not useful.

Did you try to reboot your phone? Sometimes I’ve noticed it’s an issue with the sync with the ST mobile server.
To verify you can open the IDE and check the latest device state for your device. If it’s showing the correct value there then it’s a ST mobile server sync issue. If it’s showing the wrong value in the IDE it’s most likely to do with the hub.
