Here’s an ugly kludge to workaround that misfeature.
Fortunately, I took your guys advise and did not perform the migration. I took the approach of manually setting up everything in the new app and creating my automations from scratch. This allowed me to use both apps, but I noticed that the new app would get tripped up some times. I have had to restart the integrations and I noticed the name of devices resetting back to their original names. Never happened on the classic app… smh.
I’ve had my issues escalated, and the support desk have no real clue as to the problem, except going through a standard routine of resets, etc etc. I can actually add rooms, devices etc, but they just refuse to show in the apps. I can view them online via the interent and do stuff, but thats hardly conducive to a smart system. Ho bloody Hum.
