Don’t know if this is going to help anyone or not but one of the sensor’s that would not report in Was defective I got an RMA from Samsung and they are sending me a new unit the other one was a simple factory reset and re-pair.
Considering the sheer volume of products That I have installed more or less all at 1 time the failure rate isn’t fantastic but it isn’t terrible either. Certainly a lot better than Hewlett packard servers.
I am concerned about my ability to use the utilitate sirens and the ring camera lights in sirens from within the ADT Panel. With any luck we will be getting that sorted soon.
Any luck on getting SHM to show up? I’m a former Iris user, and just got my ADT hub set up and don’t see the SHM anywhere in either app, and can’t find a way to trigger lights, and a utilitech siren without having SHM.
https://account.smartthings.com will redirect you to the appropriate shard (server) where your devices and smartapps/device handlers are installed. the URL you posted doesn’t or at least it didn’t use to. So if you happen to login to that URL and are not redirected and you attempt to install any device handlers or smartapps there - they will not work in the ST app. more on shards in the following link…
No problem and please don’t misunderstand my asking questions I’m not doubting anyone here or anything like that I am asking questions because I honestly don’t know and I’m trying to learn. Coming from Iris there is a lot to learn about smart things and in particular ADT smart things. Sits and of a steep learning curve and I need to be up to speed
I just worry I’m being a pain in the tail. I’m trying to get a lot done in a very short period of time on a system that is similar enough to Iris but very much different that I’m getting tripped up more than I would honestly like. And honestly it would be a lot more comfortable if I had had more lead time period.
I have the ADT tools 2 installed and configured and all of the function that I wanted from smart home monitor has been restored. Plus I have functions that I couldn’t even find there so I am very happy.

Keep in mind that you’re miles ahead of 90% of SmartThings customers.
While it is impossible to know the exact number, it is a certainty that the overwhelming majority of SmartThings users never login to the “IDE”.
I believe that the address “https://account.SmartThings.com” (and all the “graph.api” variations) are not published in any of the official consumer facing SmartThings documentation.
While I am no developer, I am a Linux user, so I am not afraid of getting in, reading, asking questions, and trying things out. And I am starting to dig more into development to mostly scrape rust off of my aging brain, so I have recently opened a github of my own, and started through hammering away at some html5 and perl stuff. I know perl isn’t anyones favorite anymore, but it’s one of the languages I used a LONG time ago when I did that kind of work…
Coming over from Iris to Smartthings is a bit like upgrading from say if older Ubuntu Linux had init based on System V and iptables firewalls, and going to CentOS 7, with systemd, oh, and SELinux in enforcing mode… Not an impossible task, but certainly a learning curve.
The short lead time before Iris goes away entirely is another of the driving factors. I could probably catch this with a few months of casually strolling through the forum, quietly watching and experimenting on my own, but I need to be covered. I am after all protecting my family, and my home…
Hopefully folks have noticed that as I figure things out, I try my best with the time and skill given, to share my findings and document any procedures I can come up with to help out the greater community.
I am going to keep that https://account.SmartThings.com bookmarked as that will certainly help out. The method I showed earlier was what I gleaned, and it worked, but seems like a longer path to the same thing.
Yesterday as we were moving about the house, I was keeping the alarm in armed, stay mode. We weren’t going in and out, and honestly, the neighbors that are the main problem were. We have a renter in a home next door with a teenage kid, since they moved in there has been a spike in property crime in the neighborhood. Not sure if it is the kid, or his friends, or even directly related, but certainly enough of a coincidence to keep me concerned.
As I moved about the house, my wife opened the door to the home office, one of the rooms with the Iris sensor, and not configured for my Home Security alerting as it is not ADT, and the alarm went off. I was able to disarm the alarm and tried it again, this time in the workshop door from the house, again same thing, alarm blaring, lights on etc…
I removed the Iris sensors but kept getting text messages from Smart Home Monitor RE: intrustion detection into Office door, or Workshop door.
I drilled into the push notifications in my history panel, and sure enough, it took me to SHM.
So that begs the question. How do I now fully disable SHM / keep it from trying to arm / disarm instead of ADT Home Security? I am now using ADT Tools 2 that gives me more at least obvious options compared to SHM.
If you try the classic app, under my home and then things. Select one of iris contact sensors, then select Smart Apps (top right corner), are you able to see the smart home monitor rule that is causing the alarm to sound? If so, you should be able to delete the rule here.
