I need the collective wisdom of you wise souls to help me figure out whats going on with my SmartThings button.
Background: I’ve had the SmartThings button working for a couple of months now. It was configured to switch on dumb floor lamps via 2 Meross smart plugs. 1 press for on, 2 presses for off. Simple and worked perfectly. I should note, this was configured via the button itself.
Changes: On Monday last, I (finally) managed to get into IKEA and got some of their kit. For the 2 lamps in question, I removed the Meross sockets and replaced the dumb bulbs with 2 x E27 IKEA bulbs. I also removed the button press configurations and replaced them with automations. Now, 1 press of the button switches the light state (off -> on and vice versa) while 2 presses of the button. (I have similar automations for my bedroom button coupled with 2 Innr bulbs working really well.)
Issues: Last night, I went to switch on the lights via the button as I normally would. Nothing, no response. Seemed a little odd cos I’d checked it yesterday morning and it was working fine. Played around with it a bit and I could get no reaction from the IKEA bulbs via the button. Neither single nor double press triggered any response.
Now today, I looked at the logs and dont see anything obvious in there however the button is working again perfectly without me doing anything. I did notice that battery reporting of the button seems to be all over the place but I know this isnt an exact science so I’m guessing this isnt the issue. (Battery % yesterday had 4 data points ranging from 94% to 83%. Today it started at 64% and is now up to 89%.)
Can anyone suggestion how I go about getting to the bottom of this? I dont want to blame the IKEA bulbs but the button worked perfectly up to this and the same automation is working perfectly in my bedroom.
