Hi everyone. I’ve installed one hub system into a vacation house and I’m considering adding a system into my main home. Since the “meltdown” of the Smartthings platform I’m a bit concerned and confused as to how reliant Smartthings systems are to the net. Could someone answer the following questions for me:
With all the threads about performance issues, I’m rather shocked that “simple” functions such as rules seem to be affected by the meltdown. Can’t these hubs hold their own w/o the net?
What functions work w/o the internet?
What functions work w/o Smartthings servers?
I do not want to buy into a system that is completely ineffective w/o the net and/or Smarttings servers. Sure, I get the fact that I’ll have no remote functions when I’m away but really, I can’t locally sign into my hub and work things w/o the net? That isn’t going to fly in this house. A device needs to fully function (within reason) off the grid.
