So I went ahead and updated to the March 17th update of the new app giving them some time to add more functionality to the Android side and run a few more tests.
The functionality to unlock a door is not there for any Automation. This isn’t just for Mobile Presence.
“Locked” is the only available choice when selecting a lock in an Automation.
Did someone from SmartThings say this functionality wouldn’t be added? It’s still early stage folks. So are people guessing or did you receive official word that this would not exist for locks with Automations in the new app? I realize that the email came from Support that says due to security restrictions, but if you can do it with webCoRE that doesn’t hold alot of water. If it’s some sort of Samsung liability that they don’t want and allow it for 3rd party, I guess that’s a thought, but the fact that I can manually lock and unlock it, and have other mechanisms to unlock it, that wouldn’t make much sense for them to restrict it in an automation itself.
As an fyi: I have two Yale Locks and only one is working in the new app. The other says checking status and I even downloaded the new device controller for it when it asked (lol dont know what that is). The one lock can be manually locked and unlocked without an issue:
Now for a Bose speaker in an automation, I have the ability to select a ton of options I can do with the device
The app holds a lot of promise. As for what is there and isn’t there or what it isn’t going to be added that we can currently do, I wouldn’t sweat it right now. We were told that the equivalent of everything will be there, whether we have to do it another way or not.
Another comment as far as Automations go, all of my custom and ootb Smartapps show as an Automation and 90% of them show the enable / disable toggle, including webCore which by the way can be launched / authenticated and the dashboard works within the app browser (minimal testing). But NST Manager doesn’t have enable disable and when launched it just returns back to the Automations page.
FYI: SHM was added to the Android side on the Mar 17 update as well.
Another FYI: For a mobile presence (based on location device) automation for leaving and arriving you have a lot more flexibility in that you can select from one of the following
