Smart Things Home Monitor is new APP is NOT using local control

Another community member reported this in one of the official threads, I think the following:

Updates to the SmartThings Platform

But I haven’t seen it officially confirmed.

I agree it’s a huge change if it’s true, and should have been called out. :thinking:

I don’t know if it meets your requirements, but the new V3 app does have local control for the official smartlighting feature. Not as part of the security features, though. Valves typically show up as switches, so you might be able to set up a local automation that way. But it won’t have the same mode filters so I don’t know if it will work for you.
