Putting things to cloud could be the right way to move forward with Internet of Things(IoT). But how many folks over here think that part of the automation should have “some” local control using the hub?
I wanted to try out Smartthings primarily for security and then home automation. When there is a power failure or if my internet is down, I am totally clueless of whats happening at my home!
I understand smartapps runs locally (and I know this topic has been discussed numerous times), say if ST decides to upgrade the software/firmware to support certain actions locally, would it be possible using the present hardware(Hub)? meaning… does it have the necessary physical components to do that?
There should be a ‘hybrid’ mode which should intelligently execute certain actions(like say triggering an alarm when in an event of break in) when hub detects power failure or if internet is down. Things like that could really make smartthings smart!
