We’re excited to announce the start of a new SmartThings Hub Firmware Beta. Version 0.45.6 will begin rolling out in batches starting on Sep 26, 2022. This will be a phased rollout so that we can keep a close eye on any issues that arise so your hub may not be updated immediately. The hub will be offline for about a minute during the update. See below for more specific details about the update.
0.45.6 (Update: 0.45.7)
Samsung SmartThings Hub 2015 (Hub v2)
Samsung SmartThings Hub 2018 (Hub v3)
Release Date: Sep 26, 2022

As part of our Beta program, it is important for our support team to investigate logs from Hubs running that are reporting errors. To provide our team access, please follow these instructions:
Changes to provide additional diagnostic information to SmartThings Engineers to debug Zigbee issues.
Issue with edge drivers TCP servers fixed which could result in new connections not being accepted after two clients are accepted in a short window of time.
Limits for total memory used by edge drivers adjusted for V3; warnings for this will be shown in the mobile app when attempting device join through the catalog if above the low or high thresholds. The previous limits were set higher than intended and this feature would not have worked as intended for V3 hubs.
Update Oct 7th, 2022 - 0.45.8 Firmware Release:
Zigbee stability improvements
Fixed issue causing high system cpu for drivers at the hard memory limit for drivers (resulting in frequent disconnects, high latency, and other issues).
Edge drivers don’t make any difference to the Ikea button battery performance for me. If they are in a position where the routing stays the same they survive. Otherwise they drain with hours of a routing change.
Unfortunately Ikea buttons becoming unusable for many users apparently wasn’t considered a significant regression at the time, and probably rightly so. It cost me a ridiculous amount in batteries before I had to accept the problem wasn’t going anywhere.
I am a case to be studied, continuous disconnections with each addition or deletion of a single device. I hope not to cause some headaches to the engineers who are going to read the logs.
I want to bring my testimony because I use Vimar zigbee switches, and I think that nobody uses them outside Italy, in Italy they are widespread, and for some time, many users have problems with burst disconnections. We hopefully it may be a firmware issue
Hey @cbaumler , I rebooted my hub this morning after my hub was updated yesterday, and now I have a device flooding the hub with these events every 5 minutes. It started at 2022-09-27 9:38:08.000 AM EDT:
Thanks @cbaumler , I am home now and can test anything you need. That device is Offline but in the IDE it is reporting Last Activity as of “a minute ago”. It’s likely I’ll need to reset and rejoin it for it to go back online.
The Zigbee firmware upgrade is not applicable for V2 hubs. It contains some internal updates that apply to V3 hubs only. However, everyone will have seen a version bump from 5.4.2 to 5.4.4 when the new hub firmware was applied.
