I have 4 Zigbee bulbs in a fixture that I control with SmartThings. This morning when I got up I noticed my SmartApp triggers were not turning on lights as they normally do. I wasn’t thrilled that once again this was happening, but what followed was even more out there.
One of those 4 bulbs I mention just stopped working. In fact I thought it was just bad. But when I flipped the switch on and off, it came back on. So I figure the control part of the bulb was bad. So I went through the process of removing that bulb from the ST system and installing a new bulb (I had a spare). The V2 hub saw in and included it with no issue. But when I went to attempt to turn it on and off I still had no control.
I removed it from the system again and took it to a different fixture that was more accessible. I went through the process of including it again but still no control. Then for the heck of it I changed the name of it from “Bed Two” to Bedroom Two". Shazam, it started working. What in the world could cause that? And why did most of my SmartApps stop functioning this morning. At first I thought the ST scheduling issues were the only problem, but then I realized my motion detection triggers were not working either. Could these gremlins have causes my bulb naming issue??
Very strange happenings today in my ST world!!!
