It just seems strange to me that webCoRE on SmartThings can send me an SMS text but webCoRE on habitat cannot.
It’s not that it cannot, it costs $$. I may have read that you can set up your own SMS but at your own expense.
Hi all - I’m the process of switching over webCore from ST to HE. One unexpected thing I ran into was the differences in how HE does not update Zwave switch physical button presses unless they are new generation (Zwave plus, I think).
Fortunately I found this https://community.hubitat.com/t/device-status-not-updated-when-switch-is-physically-toggled/52179 along with some links there, where the issue and solutions were discussed. The threads are closed now, but a great resource for anyone needing to support this. Apparently it’s not an issue with ST but is with HE. I worked around it by using the ZWave Poller app. Alternatively I could have replaced the switches with newer ones, but I have a lot of them and wasn’t worth the expense and effort to me.
Anyway I hope this helps someone out there!
Wait, what? I didn’t have any issues with my Zwave switches when I switched over.
I think it’s probably because you have newer switches, perhaps with Zwave Plus. Mine are over 5 years old. If you’re interested in the details, the link I referenced covers it well.
Is it dependant on the device handler you use? I had the opposite “problem” with my fibaro dimmer 2 modules. In HE I can now distinguish between physical & program switch changes. This is using a community DH, not the default HE DH.
I had to try several DH for my fibaro single switches before I found one that would detect a physical change.
