No real question here; just mild amusement and some head shakes.
Last night a few of my door/light automations weren’t working. Started messing around with HPM (uninstall/reinstall) last night, not realizing the underlying issue. Went to bed unresolved.
Woke up early to take our pup out, noticed automations weren’t working. Ring motions were triggering (HSM) all lights when taking the dog out this morning.
Root cause (pointed out is a HPM thread), my Dns was messed up, from network tinkering I was doing over the weekend, but also appears I never set my gateway on my HE correctly (worked quite a while that way).
Basically, after fixing the dns problem just because I needed to at 5am, my advice is first don’t start and not finish fixing something before going to bed related to HPM or your alarm, and then don’t reinstall HPM, and reassociate the apps, including ring integration, at 5 am. All heck broke loose.
Early bird is getting smart home de-feathered this morning.
