General Platform Updates:

  • Fix for device search in IDE where no label is present
  • Improvements to how we handle removed devices.
  • Continued general platform performance improvements

Uh, do you want to elaborate?

It means stuff that worked before will now cause you problems. You may have noticed this constantly happening due to the fact a new version will be out this year that will magically solve all of your problems.

Yes please do elaborate on:

Thanks, sorry to kill the messenger…

(Jim Anderson) #5

Doh! I just re-read that. I see why it caused confusion. We did not remove improvements, but rather made improvements to how we handle when devices are removed from the hub.

I have edited the post. So sorry for the confusion!

Does this address polling issues by any chance ?

(Beckwith) #7

Will this reduce or eliminate ghost devices?

After the 2/26 update I had days of flawless operation. Tonight my hello home action didn’t change any devices nor did it log it.

I emailed support - not sure if it’s related

(Tim Slagle) #9

Same. Seems the cloud is uber slow tonight. I emailed STs support as well.

I have a scheduled event to shut off my heat in the morning. For some reason it was 20min late this morning. I thought it was failing because it was scheduled for 7amHST, at 7:20 I launched the ST app to manually shut off and at that exact moment the event fired and the unit shut off. Not sure if launching the app had anything to do with the event firing or if it was a coincidence.
