Sunrise/Sunset Setting Not Working

I just purchased the Smart Things Hub (2018) and using the latest Smart Things Connect app on the latest version of iOS. I have verified my location and time zone are correct. I have several Lutron devices connected to the SM hub that work fine if I manually trigger them at specific times, however, no matter what time at, before or after sunrise/sunset that I setup, the automations do not run. I have not see any latest posts if this is an issue as it appeared a few months ago to be something with the app? Please advise.

You were missing the Hello Home SmartApp which includes the Weather Station SmartApp that controls sunrise/sunset. I added that for you so your automations should run as expected.

Hi Brad,

Thanks for helping hopefully solve my issue. I have changed my automation settings so they should be activated by sunset/sunrise options I’ve selected.

Is this something that should be automatically included when someone purchases a new SM Hub?

You’re welcome.

“Hello Home” used to be installed for all locations. The new app doesn’t have Routines though so the logic changed to only install it when a user access the Classic app. But now you have me questioning how sunrise/sunset automations for Smart Lighting created in the new app would ever work…I’ll check and follow up.


I don’t see Hello, Home in my Smart Apps. I use both the classic and new apps on Android with a v2 hub.

I’ve got Smart Lighting automations based on sunset and sunrise that work with no issues.

All sunset/sunrise automations worked perfect yesterday evening and this morning! Thanks again!

You would only see it in the IDE if you look at Installed SmartApps.

Checked in the IDE on the My SmartApps tab/page. No “Hello, Home”

Still looking in the wrong place. :slight_smile:

My SmartApps is for custom SmartApp code.

My Locations --> Installed SmartApps --> List SmartApps

Thought I must be but somehow never noticed the right place.

“Hello Home” is, of course, there. And I’ve been pointed at another useful resource on the IDE.
