Zigbee Device Status Monitor [RELEASE]

I’ve been having an issue where a couple of my Zigbee devices will stop communicating back to the hub. I didn’t see a way to monitor for this event using the SmartThings custom trigger or Rule Machine and the only way I could find when devices were “offline” was to check the recent history and look for any status updates. So I wrote a little app that checks to make sure devices have reported a status update. You can choose to do temperature (my preferred method and probably the most reliable) or a contact status and then a time interval (24, 48, 72, or 96 hours). If the app doesn’t see a temperature or contact update within the interval chosen, it can send a push or text notification.

Not sure if this is helpful for anyone or not, but figured I’d post it just in case.

Device Status Monitor

I can easily add other device types if desired.

There are several smartapps that do device monitoring that you might find helpful. If you check the quick browse lists in the community – created wiki and look for “wellness check” you should find some. The “simple device Viewer” is probably the most popular right now. :sunglasses:


( I’ve moved your thread to the “community-created smartapps” section of the forum where more people will find it.)

Yup “Simple Device Viewer” and also “Quick Device Check” both look like they do the same thing with a lot more features. Sorry, always forget to check the wiki. This thread could be deleted
