It’s heeeeeeeeere… :wink:


Is SmartThings dead?
(Dominick Barile) #2

I don’t know if I should be happy or afraid…lol.


#3

It’s hit the Community too.

I guess I’m among the observant folks. It was the first thing that caught my eye as I logged into the Community!

It sort of reminds me of an old rotary phone dialer

Interestingly enough, it’s the same logo the Samsung connect app uses.


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #7

That’s the whole point.

SmartThings used this logo exclusively at the Samsung Developers Conference where SmartThings Cloud unification was announced.

and the documentation seems to migrate with more details on the Samsung/smartthings pages.

I found more details about capabilities there than in the original ST documentations. Maybe I missed it before but I never found for instance airQualitySensor capability in the past.

SmartThings announced a few weeks (months?) ago that they were no longer maintaining the old documentation at docs.smartthings.com


(PPO16) #10

really? seems the samsung one is not fully implemented either. I went there following the old doc hyperlink they added for the capabilities. And the IDE still points to the old one.


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #11

Yup… Welcome to the wonderful world of SmartThings. :speak_no_evil:

And the new documentation is mostly irrelevant to the current IDE, except for some universal constructs like Capabilities.


(Robin) #12

Remember the old IDE page lol

This was slightly updated last year but it’s still using the old (old) logo


(Ricci Hoffer) #13

The logo reminds me of a guage depicting the state of my devices in the Samsung Connect app…60% (3 out of 5) unknown, unavailable, or can not connect.


(Dana ) #14

Logo schmogo.

Please, SmartThings, just don’t destroy everything as you migrate to your brave new world… <eek!>


(Geko) #15

It looks like a star network topology to me. But it appears that three out of five nodes have lost connection to the hub. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#16

We could be optimistic and assume the ones without a direct connection are cloud to cloud devices. :wink:


(Gonzalo Parra) #17

They forgot to run a Z-Wave repair on the logo before publishing…

I understand the image change thing with all the Samsung Connect merge, etc… But IMHO the old logo was so much better… Not that it really matters at the end of the day…


#18

Had they done that all the links would be broken.
