HI thanks for the reply,
I will do my best as I don’t know how to code, only how to use it when I find it.
There are a couple of DHT out there but they only see the switch and the first gang. I have a 2 gang switch and I was able to find a DHT the works but it is a bit quirky and slow to respond. it has 2 DHT a main and a child.
Here is the link https://bitbucket.org/yashik_gt/smartthings/src/master/SmartHome4U/
now onto the real deal edge drivers. I have the ide info
Yes would love this myself but at this point it’s doubtful that’s going to happen… The writer of the current dth started working on this in November and has done nothing with it yet and no one else with the knowledge of how to accomplish this has picked it up so it’s very doubtful that it’s going to happen
I was under the impression; that with the right edge drivers to make the smoke alarms run 100% local; they would be able to send commands to the lights/do automations without the cloud. So even when the smartthings service is offline or the internet cuts out; the automations still work.
Answering both your and JDRoberts question: About 1,5 week ago the smartthings server was down for the evening. None of the automations worked except the one with the Aeotec motion sensor… (That has execution location local)… The rest of my devices is all ‘Cloud execution location’ and they did not work.
I thought; if there was a way to get the fire alarms to also be “local execution” it would increase reliability.
Or is there something im doing wrong? And can i make all my devices/lights execution locations local?
The last update (Last tuesday) was aimed at this right? They wanted to make edge drivers run local?
If this local execution thing is exclusive to Aeotec… i am sure to buy those sensors/switches in the future only.
@ChrisV All Edge drivers run local. Routines/rules that only involve devices with local execution might run local (there are a number of things that could cause the automation to be executed in the cloud, such as time delays or push/SMS notifications).
If your smoke detector works with the ST smoke driver, then it will be local. If you set up an automation to have the smoke trigger another local device (a light or siren) then it will likely execute locally (look for the little house to display on the routine). If you want a notification to your phone, that will only work if your hub is connected to the ST cloud.
It was before my time but my understanding is that there was a real issue in 2017 which was caused by one firmware update and fixed by a later one. However the existence of the problem became part of SmartThings lore but it being fixed didn’t. My main hub was fine with batteries but a second-hand one had clearly had leaking batteries in it.
I removed mine because being able to power cycle the hub was more important to me than keeping the hub running during a power outage which affected most of the things it controlled, including the router.
