Reliability: webCoRE vs Smart Lighting vs new automations (for cloud-connected lights)

Hey everyone,

I’ve always used webcore pistons exclusively for motion lighting, since I’ve always felt it was more convenient to set up and pause, etc.

However, lately I’ve had some issues of commands failing and I’m thinking about using one of the alternative methods.

Would making the same simple motion lighting automations any more reliable using the automations in the new SmartThings app or the smartlighting smartapp?

I’m controlling cloud devices for the lights, so the local processing wouldn’t change much in my case I think?

Thank you very much for your help in advance.
