Airscape Device Not Updating

Jeff Terrace 6 years ago in Things & Capabilities / Non-"Works With SmartThings" devices updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 years ago 3

I have an Airscape whole house fan and I use this device handler to control it:


I've added it as both a temperature sensor (attic temp) and fan controller. For some reason, the fan status and temperature never update in ActionTiles. In fact, they don't seem to update in SmartThings either, unless I manually go into the device and click the Refresh button.

I noticed the device has the Refresh capability. Is it supposed to have the Polling capability as well? Or any idea what might be causing it not to update?

Howdy Jeff,

If the Device isn't working in SmartThings; then you're more likely to find assistance in the SmartThings Community: https://community.SmartThings.com

Capabilities / methods "refresh() / poll()" are somewhat mysterious to me, as SmartThings's policies officially say things shouldn't be "polled" ... but I think these methods are still called infrequently, but automatically, by SmartThings; or used to be. Check https://docs.smartthings.com


Adding the polling capability seems to have worked, I'm seeing the device get updated periodically now. Sent a pull request:
