This may be splitting hairs, but it doesn’t sound like they are integrating WebCore into the platform. Webcore is still its own entity that is not maintained by Samsung employees. They are building an API that third party automation creators, like webcore, can use and be supported in the future. The same API can also be used by SharpTools.io, @RBoy, @michaelahess, @krlaframboise, etc. and hopefully they can create the same smart apps with the new API that they did with Groovy Smart Apps.
If the result is a locally executed automation, I guess it really doesn’t matter (to me) how it is achieved… This is probably even better as it opens up options for new alternative tools.
Not ready to talk about the future of DTH’s today. SDC will be heavily focused on the new rules API and other enhancements. There will be a talk about the new stuff for the hub in general terms. When we do have something ready to share it will be all over the community.
Well, I’ve heard that @Automated_House booked his trip to SDC, so I am sure he’ll keep us updated in real time, as I am sure you guys are going to be super busy.
i’ve heard iPhones mysteriously explode as soon as you enter the convention center
What perfect time to switch to Galaxy, then…
Or just “borrow” someone else’s, since this…
He can “borrow” @jody.albritton 's and share with us next year’s SDC announcements LOL
All I can add is that I too was there! However, I have seen the efforts of ST and I “had” started moving things back over to ST. However, I was hit with the 300 device limit so somethings are staying on Hubitat. Today, two automation failed to trigger on Hubitat. Haven’t updated in a while so it might be that I just need to update. I’m actually excited about the future of ST. The “New App” is coming alone and is actually usable now!
To each it’s own but my system has been pretty darn stable as of late!
I use a lot of echos too, but with sharp tools widgets you can actually even set them to interact with parameters, I use a widget on my home screen to flip through smartthings parameters for a few of my devices actually. I feel like this little plugin is so underutilized by smartthings. Especially the tasker plugin.
For instance a presence sensor tells st that you’re home or away. But my tasker setup tells smartthings that I’m leaving work specifically! (When I was in range [even though I never connected to] my work’s guest Wi-Fi but no longer am in range) etc. I have some really useful routines and automations that wouldn’t be possible without sharptools, I’m shocked that relatively few people use it.
You just made the next tech media’s headline. “Samsung’s own software engineers use Nokia phones, but say Galaxy phones are better” LOL
Speaking of reliability… my first Hubitat hub died after just a few days. It doesn’t power up, and no it isn’t a power supply issue. Good thing I backed it up so I can restore its configuration on the new one arriving tomorrow.
Amen to all of that brother.
