Yeah I've got that now, but even with reduced update intervals it fails authentication quite a bit...also once or twice their api has changed and broken the app...lots of other threads on the topic suggested looking at hubconnect since the smartthings integration is 'official' now
I thought that you needed it for the setup, but could unplug it afterwards. With SmartThings shutting down the Ide, it probably would be short lived anyway. No way to know if there are any plans to jump through Samsung’s hoops to make this work after that happens until Steve gets back from camping. I wouldn’t count on it though, which is why my SmartThings hub is now shut down and disconnected from Hubitat.
They are discussing taking down the ide sometime next year, but it is still a ways off (no dates provided). I just setup hub connect 2.0 in about an hour to get my arlo cameras and a couple other cloud devices into HE.
