Unexpected error occurred with smart lighting


(John) #1

After needing to do a complete reset with Hub v2, and reinstalling/pairing all devices, I tried to add a basic smartapp but keep getting errors.

The reason for the reset: ST removed the wifi-only phone presence option (thanks a lot ST), so I’m try to find a workaround (rather yet-another-workaround). Attempted to use the core/webcore so I could once again have a working presence detection. This was a complete fail (probably on my part, whatever). I was unable to remove the github/webcore device handlers, so deleted the hub/location/etc to start over.

After having my “welcome code” resent to me, and all hardware devices reconnected, I tried to add a basic “smart lighitng” app - a ST motion sensor turns of ST wall plug (with lamp). So far so good, as I can successfully save the app.

Then I tried to change the times this app is active - only sunset to sunrise. Now it says “an unexpected error occurred” when I try to save it. Delete smart lighting, retry, no change. Reboot the hub, the app, the phone - same error. Every time, I can save the app, but if I add the time restriction, I get the error.

What is going on?

Yup…

That’s plenty to share with Support@SmartThings.com

Did you set your location after you reset the hub?

I guess that’s all it was, thanks. The time was already the correct local time, and the location was correct on the map - just hadn’t clicked on it and saved it.

Thanks again
