I scanned the community for reports of this last week and didn’t find any. My apologies if I missed previous reports.
This is due to a platform change regarding the filtering of lock events. Previously locked/unlocked events would be filtered out if they were unchanged (changed=false). So currently when a lock is polled, the lock state is being displayed regardless of whether it has changed or not.
Take this as an example:
The last event in the screenshot is a “Locked” event but “changed=false”. The lock was already locked and previously didn’t display in the IDE.
We are aware of the feedback and understand it is causing some confusion as exampled by the original post. We are evaluating possible ways to address it.
It is also worth noting a few things:
- These events should be filtered from the new SmartThings app so you will only see them in the Classic app or IDE.
- They are not contributing to battery drain. The locks are not being polled more frequently. There is just now a more visible event when they are.
