This morning my hub went inactive. According to the post “FYI: Your ST Hub May Be Offline This Morning” this was caused by an Amazon server issue. I don’t have a beef with Smartthings about this, but what I find troubling is I got no notification from the app about this. I have a presence sensor in my car and rely on it to trigger a few things when I leave home. Of course none of them happened since the Hub was offline.
I looked thru the SmartApps and there is not one that sends a notification when the hub goes offline. The app on my phone knew, so somehow the word was able to get out. Is is possible to create a SmartApp to notify when the hub goes offline? Or, even better, have an option in the app that allows a user to choose to be notified with a ringtone or popup when this happens?
