So this is pretty much me venting and if anyone in the community has a solution, that would be great but Samsung does not have one.
If I have to reset my hub every time the Smartthings Classic app tells me the code is invalid then I have landed in crazy town. Either get all the features required for promoting devices (virtual or physical) in the new app or make it so I can save all my configurations, handlers, smartapps, ect. and migrate them into a reset hub. This is program and app development 101. Actually, just make it so I can perform all activities required in the IDE. Get your act together for crying out loud. You have taken a really cool developers device and made it not worth using. I know that you want to make it more user friendly, and I applaud your efforts but seriously fix this crap. It is low hanging fruit. I shouldn’t have to lose all my hard work because an app won’t connect to my hub. The minute I find a better device, ecosystem and infrastructure in the market I will be dumping Smartthings so fast future garbage cans will feel the impact of my frustration.
