Our internet has been down for a week and one can sure learn a lot when that happens. It actually went down on the coldest day, -10 degrees last week. Water is still on, but I guess the electrons couldn't handle the cold...
First the good news, Hubitat still works great. No notifications or presence, but automations still work. Had to use dashboards more often without Alexa, but that's ok.
How other things worked.
Alexa, of course not. Kinda annoying when we forget and ask her something. She responds with no internet connection then spends the next 5 minutes telling us how to trouble shoot it.
Google Home, again doesn't work. Our Google clock continuousely changes from displaying the time and a message that the internet is down.
Honeywell thermostat. No local access here, just go to the unit itself.
We have 3 different brands or cameras. Just worked out that way.
Wyze cams, no local access.
Blink cam at front door, no local access.
SV3C outdoor cams, no problem here. I can access them over local network ok. These are some of the best cameras I have ever bought.
Logitech Harmony. It sorta works, but when you turn on an activity it apparently goes out and tries to ask the mother ship if it is ok. Takes about a minute before things actually come on. Once they are on it works ok. And turning things off, same slow result.
The Dog, Our Echos announce when we come home. So that isn't happening. The dog has learned when he hears that to go to the door to greet us. Now he doesn't know we are coming till the door opens. He's a little confused.
The wife. Don't even go there.
This is meant as a tongue in cheek humorous diatribe but it's pretty amazing how much we really rely on the internet. We actually are still down. I am writing this using the hotspot on my phone which is soooo sloooow, it's almost useless.
