BINGO!! I changed it to “Z-Wave Switch Generic” and it works flawlessly. Thanks for everyone’s help. This community is way more responsive and active than the vera community. Hoping for the stability and reliability I get from Vera on the ST.
The community is great. Stability and reliability, not so much.
The company is definitely aware of it, and they have made improving stability their top priority, but they did that a few months ago and they’re not there yet.
The commitment is real, though – – they hired a senior engineer from Amazon in April to be their New head of engineering and work on scaling issues. So I do have hopes that it will improve. But for right now, people don’t choose smartthings for reliability. Just sayin’…
I went with the VeraPlus when it came out mainly because of it’s reliability and customization. However, I’ve been disappointed in their lack of out-of-the-box integration with Echo and Google Home. We have to rely on the community to develop APIs and plug-ins to get minimal functionality with the home assistants. Seems like this would be a top priority in the home automation market. Anyway, I’ve got a ton of stuff running on the vera, so I’ll probably run both in parallel for a while until I’m comfortable with ST. Thanks again.
