I have 2 Smart Life plugs and in order to integrate with smartthings, I created 4 applets in IFTTT to turn plug on and off (1 from Smart life to ST and 1 from ST to Smart Life). It’s been working great so far and today something weird happened. The plugs keep turning on and off every hour automatically (based on IFTTT logs). What should I do to stop those behaviors?
Same issue. 9 lights going on and off for the past 3 days . Was hoping for globe suite to come back and do the integration through them but I guess that’s not going to happen anytime soon so yeah. Maybe the new hub firmware will do the trick " Version: 0.29.8
Samsung SmartThings Hub (Hub v2)
Samsung SmartThings Hub (Hub v3) (2018)
Release Date: 28 Feb 2020
Minor reliability and stability improvements to Zigbee and Z-Wave.
Address issue impacting stability of cloud communication channel for some workloads."
My SmartLife plugs were set up to sync both ways with a simulated switch in ST using IFTTT but they developed a life of their own a couple of weeks ago. I only control them through ST, so I disabled the SmartLife->ST applets and they have been working fine since then. A poster on another link indicated that he had called the vendor of the SmartLife plug and they told him that Tuya (the company behind SmartLife) had stopped supporting IFTT so that is not a promising sign.
Same issue. I have been contacting the smart life support and they tried to blame IFTTT “timers” but I am not using IFTTT or ST timers to control these. I disconnected the IFTTT applets and the plugs stopped randomly turning on and off. So I guess I will use it through the smart life app only for the time being.
Oh, thank goodness. I thought my house was haunted and my family was getting upset with me for not fixing the random lights. I have my smartlife plugs connected to SmartThings via IFTTT. I’m replacing the wifi plugs with zigbee plugs that smartthings directly supports. Much faster, not terribly expensive, and just a cleaner solution.
I have done a work around that seem to be working so far and is not being affected by the random turn on and off. I did two tap to run smart actions each in smart life to control a bulb and 2 ceiling fans I have. One for on and one for of per device. Then using ifttt the are linked to two virtual switches in ST. Works perfectly thus far for my bulbs and ceiling fans.
