What is happening here?
Seems Samsung is pushing this Samsung Connect and either we have to merge SmartThings with it or start all over?
I do not see anything in the new Samsung Connect App for use with Smart Home Monitor? I purchased SmartThings mainly for use as a security system utilizing the multi-purpose sensors, motion sensors, smoke alarms, sirens, lights etc etc. Android Presence to arm/disarm coming and going. Worked fine until we got new Note 8 phones… now the entire system is RUINED if Android Presence needed as before.
After getting (2) new Note 8 phones for Android Presence Sensors, seems the phones “came with” Samsung Connect App. Once running this app, it will create LOCATIONS that cannot be deleted and messes up Android Presence and now they either work or don’t or huge delay’s etc. Just a nightmare.
I am getting ready to REMOVE ALL MY SAMSUNG accounts and START OVER which is the ONLY way until the Samsung developers FIX the problem between SmartThings and Connect App.
I am guessing Samsung will push or force us to go from SmartThings to Connect App…but I am concerned at this point Smart Home Monitor is NOT implemented in Connect App. I understand that their is a SmartThings and ADT security combo… which I am NOT fond of ADT. Really went against DYI by bring in that proprietary old dog of a security company ADT. I despise them which is why I chose the DYI SmartThings route, but low and behold, that announcement came a couple months after I implemented my DYI SmartThings system.
When Ring gets their mess ironed out with ADT court battles, Ring Security looks to have been the better choice.
Is anyone using Smart Home Monitor within the Samsung Connect app somehow? Or am I correct that it is not even implemented in it and may never be?
