Status of flood lights when offline

Colin Armentor 6 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 1

I have a zwave light switch in smartthings that controls a number of devices on my back patio such as 2 fan/lights combos and 2 flood lights with wifi bulbs in each. When I turn the light switch on, actiontiles accurately reports the flood light bulbs as being on. When I turn the light switch off the flood light bulbs still show as turned on in actiontiles. I am assuming that is because when I cut power to the bulbs their status shows offline vs turned off. Is there a way for them to show as turned off when they lose power? 

Thanks!

When you cut the power, the device actually becomes offline rather than off. SmartThings does not report "off" event when the power is cut off.

However, there's a feature in development to monitor device statuses and alert when they go offline.
