This right here is the kicker. I am OK with things breaking because we cannot expect them not to. But there needs to be a system in place (that works) to alarm the more technically inclined of an issue.
Status.Smartthings.com has never been useful for me as it seems to be updated by a person and is not automated. An automated system with up down status, message queue statuses, and status of then link between S3 and Smartthings would be great! This could be an amazon issue for all we know but with out us knowing we, by default, blame SmartThings. The more information us developers and technical people have the better. If we know what’s going on we won’t flame the message boards;)
Because of the lack of information I have removed my hue lights as a part of my own troubleshooting and now cannot add them back… If I had information before that I wouldn’t of done my own troubleshooting… I guess that’s the rub of being a break/fix server troubleshooter by day haha.
