As far as I am aware the Weather Station smartapp has no involvement in accessing weather information for the SmartWeather Station Tile, which gets its info from TWC via functions exposed by ST.
What the Weather Station smartapp does do is generate sunrise/sunset information for your location for use by legacy smartapps such as webCoRE and Smart Lighting. I don’t know if it has ever had any other function.
Exactly what the deal is with that weather info in the new app isn’t clear. It appeared unheralded and pretty much remains that way, as go the related bits of Automations which don’t seem to work.
Excellent! I know at one time they had been saying they were going to fix the SmartWeather Station Tile to display temp instead of humidity on the tile in the new IOS app, but it never happened. I was afraid they stopped trying to fix it and were getting rid of it.
I did not get that added and I don’t see a way to add it in the smartapps menu. SHM Custom is also in their list of apps getting deleted, so it sounds like it is going away. I’ve been asking for Automations to support this since the migration began, but here we are…
I’m getting more and more confused (but what is new? )
In the new app (migrated a couple of months ago) I do not have STHM (should I?). I do, however, have Custom Monitors and it has most of my notification-type rules ported over from the classic app (I can’t be sure now, but I think they were all custom rules in SHM - things like notify if a door has been open for x minutes).
So are all those Custom Monitors going away? It’s getting to the point where I will be lucky to be able to turn on a light via SmartThings. Or are you going to take Smart Lighting away too?
After moving house I have this grand plan to upgrade from smart plugs to smart switches and outlets, but this whole mess with the classic app, Simple Device Viewer no longer being able to check “last event”, Life360 integration not working, and talk of Samsung discontinuing sales of hardware is making me look hard at other solutions.
It shows up in the list of SmartApps. As mentioned above, it only showed up for people who invoked the migration late in the game (October). There appears to be no way to add the SmartApp manually. Once it is there you can add additional rules.
As long as I have webCoRE, I’m good. If it goes then I really don’t have a choice to leave because it’s just too much to do what I now consider simple automations based on various conditions with varying results based on those being met.
I just don’t understand how ST hired the person responsible for creating webCoRE and end up with a garbage automation engine that can’t seem to accomplish the simplest of task.
If phone is away and pc “turns” on then text…I could leave right after getting off the computer and get a text that it turned on while I was gone.
If such a such stays on for x amount of time then text…Nope🤦🏾♂️
If too many conditions are put in the If then automation works sometimes but not all.
STHM tell a me that a sensor is opened but not tell me which one…
App takes forever to load tiles and get status…
Have to have a Samsung phone to use custom locations…
