Hi, I’ve been waiting for the V2 hub to arrive before I shutdown my revolv system. Since getting the hub I’ve added my 3 Schlage locks, 5 wave switches, 8 hue bulbs and both Harmony Hubs, I think, not sure exactly how the harmony hubs work in smartthings. The other items seem to be working fine after a very odd, hit and miss, setup.
I’ve got lots of questions but I’ll start with a couple for now. First off the app seems a bit convoluted and more complex than it needs to be.
First off I don’t understand why I have two security sections under the smart home monitor like this
Secondly, integrating harmony actions from my harmony hubs into smartthings makes no sense at all. For instance I want to change the routine called “bye” that’s turns everything off including the current action running on the downstairs hub. Basically the same as pressing the all off button on the remote. It turns off the TV, and the Apple TV. I was told the install a smart app that allows this but that process makes no sense. I had a couple screenshots from the iOS app but I’m only allowed to post 1 image. If anyone needs to see the screens I’m seeing. I can send them.
I don’t want to “control the harmony hub when somethings happens” I want to add the off function to the bye routine. This proces seems backwards to me. I don’t want a device to detect something that would then allow me to control the hub. Does anyone have any experience with using harmony hubs and actions with smart things ?
I need to also get help with modes which make no sense as they seem to be manually initiated and it seems like modes would be something that would occur automatically, like the detection of someone arriving after sunset that would turn things on like lights that wouldn’t turn on the day. Or everyone leaving the house that changes the mode automatically to away.
Any help for this newbie would be much appreciated
