So now with the new version of the virtual device creator, when ever I scan for nearby devices the virtual device creator doesn’t show up anymore. I tried reinstalling the driver through the CLI but that didn’t make any difference. Any suggestions on what I’m doing wrong?
Hey, so I have an error suddenly - the ‘Select & Create’ and ‘Virtual Device Inventory’ options are greyed out and I get a toast saying ‘This device hasn’t updated all of its status information yet. Check again later’.
I am using the edge creator for couple of month and it was working fine until today.
I am now getting a message that the device status is not fully updated and it only let me change the number of devices i want to create, the other two selections for device type and inventory are grayed out.
I have the latest version from 2/1/23 ends with. …957
Should i uninsall and reinstall it?
What will happen to the 15 virtual devices i am already using?
I was getting the same message with the vDev Controller.
I created a virtual switch which was assigned to the room where my hub is located. After that, I stopped seeing that message and a list of all my virtual devices appeared in the vDev Controller.
Same issue as the last 2 posts (greyed out add options). I am on v2.5.
How do I update to v2.8? I thought version updates of this type were automatic for subscribed channels, but I’m probably wrong on that. Tried the ST scan for new devices and none were found. No other driver versions appear when I check in “select a different driver” option. (Sorry if this is covered already in this long thread). Haven’t had to touch the ST edge driver tools for a few months now;-).
You need to delete the virtual device creator (not the driver). It doesn’t mess up your virtual devices. Then scan for nearby devices and the v2.9 device creator will show up in the room with your hub.
This works very well and I am super happy with this local switch app.
These switches automatically went into sthm In my sensors used in away mode .
This has created many false alarms etc till I figured that out.
And lastly a quick help page explaining the difference of all the switch types and what the three controls do in the app.
This has made a very noticable improvement in my home automation and dramatic reduction in latency.
Yes thanks, I figured that out today.
Just a good thing for other users to know is when they create a bunch of virtual switches, they will automatically be added to the away mode sensors in STHM. Once excluded per your instructions, it all works great.
There is a device type in SmartThings named VIRTUAL for native virtual devices (which haven’t really been launched yet). They also appear under the virtualdevices endpoint in the API. A similar thing happens with HUB and hubdevices and GROUP and devicegroups.
As far as the API is concerned the devices made using this driver are actually of type LAN.
