I had just gotten my new IKEA TRADFRI light bulbs and enabeled webCoRE when the outage hit. I was positive I completely screwed up my system by messing around with webCoRE. Kinda glad to see everyone else is having issues too.
I hear you. I had something similar happen last time only with a thermostat cranked up that was slaved to a virtual that stopped giving orders. Not good. I think I have it worked out now but still leary.

I’m sure that Smart Lighting is still functioning locally for those of you with Hub V2 and properly selected and configured devices and Smart Lighting…
As @NRidgely points out above, even if you have everything set up for local processing, mode changes, smart home monitor armed status, and routines don’t run locally. And you have no control from the mobile app during a cloud outage.
Local processing as currently implemented is fine if you just want to have some lights go on and off with your motion sensors (assuming, of course, that you didn’t put any mode restrictions on that) but it doesn’t really protect you from a cloud outage because of these other issues. It may be better than nothing, but then again, maybe not if it continues to think you are away when you are home or vice versa. Or just if it thinks it’s day when night comes.
How about someone posting who is still up and running?
Wink is still up!! haha having fun with this
HA You didn’t go through Wink outages, they were long and terrible and the fact that my GE Link bulbs kept dropping out. After one of them Wink devices had to be manually re-flashed. I finally gave up and switch to ST about 6 months ago after 2 years with Wink and no problems other than a couple of outages.
