Yesterday I had a blackout from 2 pm until over midnight because of a broken glassfiber cable of my internet provider.
I felt like a complete idiot for having automated my lights etc because around everywhere the lights were on.
I have only smart lights controlled by motion sensors and scene switches and none of these worked with the internet connection off line. How is this acceptable? Why does the smartthings hub not support the(se) simple functions locally???
This is the third type “smart hub” that I am using and I was finally satisfied with the available functionality (still believing the advertised miss directions that ST would have offline functionality).
My Sonos was still fully functional from inside my home (and why should it not, they make a good system)!!! My Honeywell system was still fully functional (because who would accept the heat going off when the internet is down)
Why do we accept this from ST???
Or did I miss a check box for “local functionality”???
A very disappointed user.
