Please note that excessive polling of some devices (particularly Zigbee and Z-Wave) may cause network congestion and lead to degraded system performance. Therefore, polling rate faster than 5 minutes is not recommended. The author of this software bears no responsibility for your system performance. Use it at your own risk.
I don’t claim originality of the idea, but I needed one badly for some of my projects and didn’t find anything among the shared apps. So there it is…
Many SmartThings devices rely on polling to periodically update their status. These devices have ‘polling’ capability and provide poll() function that the SmartThings polling engine calls approximately once every 10 minutes. Unfortunately, SmartThings polling engine proved to be unreliable and sometimes it stops working for hours and even days.
Here comes Pollster to the rescue! Pollster is a polling daemon that calls poll() function periodically for selected devices. Polling interval is user-configurable and can be as short as one minute.
