I’ve looked at the main page of the FAQ, and a few of the entries linked from it. I also did a search, and didn’t find a concrete answer (mostly speculation from some time last year).
As a prospective user, one significant question I have is what happens when my internet connection goes down? Some of the discussions I found here talked about plans to add 3G support to the hub. That’s overkill for my purposes.
For my (fairly basic) needs, I don’t really care if the hub is unable to text me to tell me the dog arrives home from work (perhaps one day I might).
For now, I need to know that if I program my lights to come on an hour before sunset, that ‘programming’ is stored on the hub so that even if the whole internet is down my lights will still come on at the right time.
Or does it require a constant internet connection so that SmartThings’ servers can tell it what to do at the right time?
Thanks … Mike
