Hi. I’ve been using Webcore for some years now and I’ve seen some failures from time to time, but this last week has been kind of terrible. I haven’t done many changes lately, most of my pistons weren’t edited in the last months, but suddenly everything is failing.
I know there has been an outage in SmartThings last thursday, since then my system doesn’t seem to have recovered. I have pistons that open and close blinds when I arrive and leave home, and they are failing. For example, there’s a simulated switch that is set to 99% to have the blinds open sequentially. It can be used manually or activated by a couple of pistons (when I arrive home, or when I wake up).
This last week, the blinds never opened automatically, and when I went to check this blinds simulated switch it was ON and recently turned on, so it was activated by the wakeup/arrive home pistons but it didn’t cause the next piston to run. If I turn it off and on “manually” (from the ST app), the blinds open.
This never happened before, or never with this frequency. What should I do? Is the ST/WebCoRE platform being left to die or what?
EDIT: I’ve been paying attention in this last hours and one ting that I notice is that WebCoRE pistons are not reacting to events caused by 3rd parties. i.e. my Tasker turns on a switch through SharpTools but the piston that should react to that switch change doesn’t react. If I toggle that switch manually, the piston reacts. The same with events triggered by Google Assistant. I see the switches changing in the ST app, but if the change was made by a 3rd party, WebCoRE won’t react to that.
