I have an automation that just switches the mode to away. Is there a way to check the mode status in smartthings?
In the new app, click on the three dots in the upper right of the screen and choose Manage Home. The current mode will be shown in that screen.
It would be nice if there was widget on android that let you see/change it
It would be nice if the new app would use some of that extra space at the top of the app to display the location mode, perhaps the number of lights on, etc, instead of all the useless unused space.
Yes and combine some of features in the classic app
Another option “for some users” is to get something like ActionTiles or SharpTools.
