I just bought my first SmartThings Hub, V2. I’m also buying several odds and ends and gadgets, and trying to learn how to use them all.
I end up searching in the community for answers, and frequently hit V1 solutions.
It’s actually quite hard to find out how to do things, such as send out an alert if the garage is opened after 10pm. It’s made more difficult when I keep getting V1 solutions that don’t work with the V2 hub.
Is there anyway we can set a filter so that we only get V2 communications? If not, can we add this functionality?
The only real difference you are finding is that the App is not V2 so actually all of the solutions you are finding that you can’t recreate will not work for V1 hubs anymore either.
So my recommendation would be to post to the thread you find asking. How can this be done in the new V2 App ?
Many of the solutions are exactly the same.
Custom Device code added using the ide will be the same.
Custom Device code for Smart Apps you find folks have created, also added using the ide, will be the same.
The difference is how to navigate through the V2 app to find SmartThings apps and some have been outright deleted, perhaps replaced by other smart apps. We are actually ALL struggling with the changes.
Yes, exactly. The forum is great, and there are a lot of Times when seeing the whole history of something in conversational brainstorming form is useful. It’s just that a wiki serves a different purpose, which is to present the currently agreed-upon factual answer. I’m really pleased that @obycode and others have undertaken the wiki project.
