Hello all from Florida,

I moved to my new home in the beginning of this month, so i decided to make it a smart home.
This is what i got so far,

Philips Hue hub
11 Philips Hue Bulbs
Samsung SmartThings hub
1 Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensor
3 Samsung SmartThings Outlet
1 Samsung POWERbot R9350 Turbo Robot Vacuum
1 Samsung Wisenet SNH-C6417BN SmartCam 1080p Full HD Wi-Fi Camera
2 Amazon Echo Dot

I have built the entire system without any connection issues, it was pretty quick and easy, everything works great but i’ve been experiencing a couple issues with the apps.
I used an iPhone to program the entire system and to monitor my home and trigger routines.
My SmartThings app keeps logging out by itself making the routines stop working when triggered by phone presence.
Can’t control the robot vacuum through SmartThings app (it is added and connected on the SmartThing’s app) but im able to control it through Samsungs Smart Home App ONLY when im home connected to my home wireless network, i can’t even open the Samsung Smart Home App away from home.
SmartCam+ app doesn’t allow me to do anything away from home except to watch live feed WITHOUT audio, but i can watch live feed from SmartThings app with audio but can’t use the two way talk option. It works great when im connected to my home network.
Amazon Echo dot works great with Alexa doing the commands that we ask for, and the Philips Hue bulbs are doing perfect.

I dont know if anyone else is experiencing the same issues that i have and if there is any way to solve this.
Let me know what you guys think.

I have this issue, I’ve submitted tickets and complained to ST here. Like a lot of issues they have, they don’t seem to care. They are more interested in getting a AppleWatch app working.
