I had probably around 15 or 20 of them that are only 1/2 of a complete transaction with the other half being in my ISY-994 HA controller. If I need to rebuild them, I will also have to fix each of the rules in the 994 as each will need a new token to match the new custom behavior. I would prefer for UCIC to restore my missing behaviors if possible.

If I need to re-create these behaviors, its not the end of the world by any means but I will wait until UCIIC says there is no chance of recovering the missing behaviors before I start down that road.

Support ended up sending me a link to a Google Doc that documents the HTTP features and the like so I thought I'd share it.

It looks like that I have access. I think that I was getting confused between the ACB and Developers Web API.

Ideally I would like to poll the sensors off of the Ubi and have SmartThings react to this those sensors. For instance, turn on the kitchen lights when Ubi detects motion.

I'm curious how the "motion" is being detected?

I've tinkered a bit with the air pressure and light sensor, although it seems that the polling (assuming it's once a minute from the looks of the logs), is not picking up the "second" something happens. :|

What am I missing here to detect motion from UBI?

Oh, well duh /palm face... I got those. ;)

I thought UBI was capable on her own. :|

I thought Ubi had a motion sensor built in based on this post.

Maybe that was supposed to be based on air pressure changes?

Ahh, this could be the case.

That's what I thought too.. but in my tests, the UBI's minute by minute checks are not frequent enough to get that and react to it.
Now, I could be totally wrong (as I'm basing this on the LOGS records "each minute")... but I could not get UBI to react based on the smallest change. :|

I even sat there with a flat object and waved at it intensely for a minute to see if that would do anything, nope. :(

I even tried using the light meter for this.

I suspect that even if we can use it for a "change" situation like this, we'll have to consider things like (cats meow, dogs bark, car passing, clouds changing the light, big bird causing a shadow, etc.)

I thought that using just a small change would be helpful, but I can imagine that it changes by small amounts constantly which would cause lots of false actions.
