The way I have been accessing my hub is via my.hubitat.com and it either takes me right to my hub, or asks me to login, or at other times I click "Find my hub" at the top right of that page and then I log in.
Starting yesterday, clicking "Find my hub" returns a site cannot be reached page:
I googled around and found this site:
Which lists my hub name, and when I click on my hub name, I got right in.
So my questions are:
- Is something wrong on my end or Hubitats end, or did Hubitat just change things?
- Should I use the Hubitat Portal site to access my hub from now on?
- This portal page has a message "below are the Hubitat Elevation hubs found on your local network". Was I not accessing my hub locally before?
In the googling around I did, there were some instructions about restarting the hub periodically, as well as properly shutting it down and restarting, but no specific directions on that.
- Should I just click "Reboot (Reboot hub)" from the settings page? Does that properly shut it down and restart it? There is also a "Shutdown" option. What is the difference? Does that only shut it down, and if so, how would you restart it?
