Switch type: What’s the difference between “virtual” and “simulated”?

Hi,
what is the difference between virtual or simulated switch in smartthings

Virtual is the new one and can run local and will process on/off commands no matter the current state. It is also the one that gets created when using the Virtual Switch creator in the smartthings classic app.

@prjct92eh2 Should we be migrating over our Simulated Switches then to the new Virtual Ones?

I know I had issues with my Simulated Switches some weeks back and then the issue was re-solved with a firmware update.

I would. Quick change and shouldn’t hurt anything.
