I’m a little frustrated, ever since I updated the SmartThings App to V 1.61 earlier this month, I’ve had nothing but problems with controlling my Hue system through SmartThings. Before Updating to V 1.61, everything worked flawlessly… but now, it only works about 20% of the time.
(Note: Hue works fine from the Hue App and via MeetHue.com with no lag or delay, so issue is with SmartThings integration specifically.)
I understand that it’s still in beta, but with the way it’s been acting, it seems more like alpha. Also as I previously stated, it worked 100% of the time prior to updating… so it seems like it may be an issue with the new app?
Things that are not working:
“Hello, Home” actions, “SmartApps,” “Things” menu buttons and “Dashboard” actions no longer work reliably. Now and then the Hue bulbs will respond to a command, but it is very rare. Some examples of actions I have programmed:
• When mode switches to "Night" turn off X,Y,Z lights (Via Hello, Home) • When motion is detected in the kitchen, turn on "Kitchen Ceiling" light and turn off light when motion stops (Via Dashboard Action for "Kitchen Ceiling") • When the "Front Door" contact sensor opens and mode is set to "Away" turn all lights to red (via SmartApp "Set Mood with Hue")
Those are just a few examples. Even in the “Things” menu when I go to check the “On/Off” status of a light bulb, it is not always accurate, and if I go to tap one of the buttons to control a light, it only works about 20% of the time.
I have reached out to support and they have suggested uninstalling Hue and reinstalling it. I tried this and it still is not working. I have also Factory Reset my Hue hub and reinstalled on SmartThings and same thing… bulbs only respond around 20% of the time.
Anyone else having issues? Anyone find a solution? Thanks in advance!
