Wemo or Osrams drop off Smartthings

I have been on ST for a few years. It has improved and is much better than Vera. What has always been an issue is Devices like WeMo and Osram dropping off the hub. In the beginning I was fine with it as I didn’t have many smart apps attached to them.

Now I use CoRE and other apps to extend for ST can do. I don’t mind having to reset a device due to many factors but what really gets me is that supports answer is always to remove the device and re-pair it.

The issue is that the platform is not setup in a way that removing a device and re-pairing it will add that device back to all the smart apps.

I get CoRE is not a standard SA but it is an important app that makes ST amazing.

Ok rant over.

Yes it would be great if ST could implement some sort of “Swap Device” functionality to help make these kinds of things less of a pain.
