Using STSC, I had an automation that, when the ring doorbell was pressed, it turns on a lamp, sets the color to green, and shuts it off in a few minutes. I used “automation” (not smart lighting app), for that.
I’ve been reconfiguring, got a new LED bulb, and reconnected Ring to smartThings. Now when I create an automation the same way, I when I get to the “if” part, I don’t have an option for when the doorbell is pressed. I have time, device status, member location and location mode. Under device status, I can select the doorbell and “motion detected”, but nothing for the button.
If I use the smart lighting app, I can respond to the button push, but then I can’t do the automatic shutoff.
I know I could do this with webcoRE. But do you know why the “automation” route doesn’t work anymore? Is this just a case of the Ring app changing and eliminating the button push event?
