Greetings. I have been using ST for a few years (started on Classic), and now am required to use the new app as Classic disabled. I set my phone as a presence sensor and integrated it into automations which worked beautifully. I upgraded my phone but kept the same number. The prox functionality did not transfer, which I expected, but after a couple of hours of research am completely baffled as to how to accomplish this. Any help greatly appreciated!
To enable the Presence sensor on your new phone - in the ST app, tap on the Menu tab, select Settings (the cog in upper right) and enable Get Location for this Phone.
Before you enable it:
- To preserve your existing automations, you may wish to create a virtual presence sensor and edit any Routine that contained your previous phone and put the virtual presence sensor in place of the old phone. Save those Automations.
- Login to IDE at https://graph.api.smartthings.com go to the My Locations and tap on the Location name. Then proceed to the My Devices and look for the old phone presence sensor and delete it.
- return to the ST app and enable Get Location from this phone as noted above.
- Edit your routines and replace the virtual presence sensor with the new phone’s presence sensor.
- and test, test, test
THANK YOU very much for the quick and detailed response.
is it just me, or does this seem a whole lot harder than it should be? In general, I sure do miss Classic, but again I am sure that is just me.
Again, many grateful thanks.
Many users miss the Classic app so you are not alone.
