It’s so frustrating that the community written apps add so much functionality to the system but the official apps can be more stable and officially supported.
I used rule machine a lot and have had rules in it since. Due to not having github support in the UK still I have not gone to CoRE yet as I would have to update the app code manually every time a new version was available.
Therefore I have been trying to convert rules to officially supported apps only and it’s very hard.
For instance all I want is this; I want a light to come on with movement and go off again after BUT only when the light is not already on and only in a few modes. It’s really simple with CoRE or Rule Machine but not possible with official apps! Mainly because you can’t do things based on switches turning on. Tried with combinations of official smartapps, modes and routines and there is no way.
I’ve used smartthings for a while now and have only ever seen an illumination option added to Smart lighting as an official app improvement.
I appreciate the stability being the most important thing (although this isn’t looking great again right at this moment) it would be brilliant to know if updates like the above to the official apps are even in the near future plans? As mentioned elsewhere it’s not like all the teams are going to be focused on platform stability right now.
