Here’s what I don’t understand about the “Network connection” app pop up I have been getting consistently for a while when first opening the app (iOS app, persistent through today’s update):
I can open the app from a closed state and immediately change the state of the SmartThings Home Monitor (STHM). Routines that are triggered to run when STHM modes change also run immediately.
I can open the app from a closed state and immediately run a Scene which turns on all of my lights, or groups of lights, or turns them off, or otherwise controls my devices.
I can’t open the app from a closed state and immediately control an individual device. I need to sit through 10-20 seconds of “Network connection… Your action will be completed when your phone is able to connect to the Smartthings server” and a spinning device circle.
How does my phone have enough of a network connection to run Scenes and Routines (which each control devices), and change STHM states, but not enough of a network connection to control or open an individual device?
This makes no sense to me. Certainly seems to be a bogus message to me and indicative of some other sort of issue with the app.
Get on it Samsung! I can’t submit any more cases to lead you to this problem and its resolution.
