Interesting news about SmartThings & Webcore

Recommended Posts

@Larry Underwood If you have a way to contact Adrian can you ask him what the plans are for Virtual Switches as they are currently in Smart Apps which he mentioned in the video as going away with Rules API?

He was asked a lot of questions about the transition in the Q&A, but the attendees questions weren't audible

I'll ask him when I get a chance. As far as the questions goes it was mostly from one guy and he was more or less arguing with Adrian why we needed webcore if they were going to have a new rules engine anyway. Adrian was trying to explain that we would be able to do more complex automation's with webcore then we could with even the new rule engine.

If virtual switches are eliminated what effect will that have on all of the Wyze motion sensors and contact sensors?  Since the Wyze sensors are not integrated with Smartthings, virtual switches is the only way Wyze gets integrated into Webcore and Alexa routines. 
Will this make Wyze a less useful system?

I also use virtual switches and virtual contact closures for interfacing with Alexa Routines. This would be a real problem unless SmartThings maintains a way to create them
