Got my SmartThings last week and I was playing with it.
The first thing I did, was to set some simple automations.
I did connect my Hue system to it. Not issues so far, I was able to control the lights within the apps.
Then I created the automation:
- Turn Lights On on sunset
- Turn Lights Off on sunrise
My first issue was setting the color, the colours available are all messed up and do not represent the actual color.
The second issue is that it simply fails to execute it 50% of the time. Sometimes it turns on but then it doesn’t turn off. When I was checking the event log, the “sunrise / sunset” event doesn’t gets called or it is not listed there…
Seriously, there are a bunch of issues with very simple automations and then expect us to use this to secure our homes?
1 week has past and I am already disappointed.
