SmartThings has begun prompting users to transition from the SmartThings Classic app to the ‘new’ Samsung SmartThings mobile app.
Important: The migration tool will remove some functionality that you may be accustomed to using in SharpTools - specifically, functionality related to Routines and SHM. See below for more details.

Impact to SharpToolsThe biggest immediate impact to SharpTools users is the following:
- Routines will be transitioned to Scenes
We do not currently have support for executing scenes directly. As a workaround, you would need to use a virtual switch or mode change to trigger the desired Scene.
- Smart Home Monitor (SHM) will be transitioned to SmartThings Home Monitor (STHM)
SmartThings has not provided an API for controlling STHM. As a workaround, you would need to use a virtual switch or mode change to trigger the desired STHM state.
We are working hard to migrate to the new SmartThings API which brings support for executing Scenes, but this API does not expose STHM support to third-parties. If controlling and monitoring SmartThings Home Monitor (STHM) state is important to you, please reach out to SmartThings support and post in the linked thread letting them know that you want SharpTools to have STHM access!
This is a one-way migration, meaning you would no longer be able to manage Routines or SHM in classic. After these features are migrated to their ‘new’ app equivalent, the legacy features will be removed and no longer accessible within the mobile apps. (reference)
