For me, I’d rather the outlets keep their current state. Even with zigbee and zwave, if I were to be away from home and lose internet connection I would not be able to turn a device off. I’m using one of these to control day and night lights on an aquarium. I don’t want my light turing off during the day randomly.
Oddly enough, the strip I’m using on my tank keeps turning off today and I can’t get it back on for a while. Both strips I have are within about 10 feet of the router. It seems they have problems keeping their wifi connection. Does smartthings just guess that it’s off when it can’t reach the strip? How else does it know that it’s actually off if it’s a wifi issue?
