A few weeks ago I’ve experienced system instability mainly with my zigbee devices. After working with support to troubleshoot the problems, their solution was to install “non-local device types” for my failing motion sensors and to disable the local processing on my account. After the chat session ended, I was able to confirm that non-local device types were installed for two sensors, and also that I no longer had any apps running locally.
For almost a week I had no problems with my system, everything was working properly. I noticed a little lag, but nothing significant. However Saturday, my system started acting up again. My presence sensor is arriving without leaving, some of my light automations just don’t work - even if the individual devices are functional.
A quick check in IDE showed that some apps are now listed as running locally (even some flagged as “Beta” in Android that “not yet supported for local execution”). I thought that if I go in and change more devices to the “non-local” versions the problems will go away, again. Well, I had no luck finding them. They are not available as templates, not available on GitHub. @slagle, would it be possible to make them available for public somewhere, so I don’t have to chase support? I have non-local for motion sensors, but this weekend I had problems with multi sensors. Also, is there a way to disable the local processing altogether while things get worked out on your end?
Here are some screenshots:
Custom device type not available
Beta feature “not local”:
Beta feature listed as local (all Motion OFF apps use the beta feature)
