When I log into the hub while at home to work on making rules, or adding new devices, etc. I am constantly getting kicked out and sent back to the search for local hub screen. Any ideas why?
I don't know if this would help but I was having roughly the same issue kept going to the login screen. I clear the cache on my browser and that seemed to fix it all is working good now hope that this helps if you haven't tried it already.
I have not tried that but will give it a go tomorrow
When you "log in" do you go to portal.hubitat.com or directly to the IP of your hub?
Are you using the Hubitat app?
I'm not sure about "best practices", but I would use a browser to "admin" the hub, not the app. In fact I recommend using a browser in "private/incognito" to avoid the cache issues. In my experience it works better.
I only use the app on my phone for cloud dashboards, and setting Geo fence.
What cache issues are you referring to?
I have just been using the app. I will try the browser route also
