Last week we finally got back around to debugging our SmartThings integration. There are three big problems that I’m aware of:
- An issue where authentication fails after ~24 hours of enabling the “Bond Home” ST app. This results in network errors after the successful control of a device, and the state never updating. If you delete and then re-add the Bond Home ST app, it should be fine for another 24 hours. I believe we’ve fixed this logic! I’ve just deployed a patch. You probably will still need to delete and re-add your “Bond Home” SmartThings app! But this time should be the last time
- An issue where devices start duplicating. It seems this is due to not properly reporting when devices are deleted. We need some tweaks in another part of our backend to address this. We’re hoping to patch this within the next week or so.
- Our SmartThings integration does not currently support “cloud” devices. Our current focus right now is to get rid of these cloud devices in favor of fully local devices. Over the next few weeks we will push through a cloud to local migration that’ll get all your devices working.
After these three roadblocks are out of the way, we’ll start expanding the integration to support more device types: motorized shades, fireplaces, and fans with two lights.
