Just got a SmartThings hub & multisensor yesterday. I’m a long time Alexa user with LOTS of smart home devices from various vendors.
After some missteps I figured out how to create SmartThings automations so that when the multisensor is open (garage mode), it turns on a deadicated lamp in in my living room & sends me a text msg. I have another automation that turns the lamp off when I close the garage. These were created on my Samsung Note 9. The idea with the lamp is that I want a visual reminder that I left my garage door open.
On another device (Samsung tablet) I created a third automation that turns on just about every smart device in my house if the Garage door opens during a certain time period. I really want to know if my door is opened unexpectedly during these hours.
The problem is, I can’t figure out how to get the automation created on the tablet to be visble on the phone.
Have I incorrectly assumed that automations, etc. automatically sync across all your devices where you have the new SmartThings app installed & you are logged on with the same user account on all the devices?
