My sensors are all "unavailable". Guess I won't be using this platform for anything critical.

I'm not sure what odds you're referring to, but I can tell you with 100% certainty that all of my sensors were unavailable. It has since come back online. The average smart device hobbyist won't really care if there are occasional outages, but for an actual critical system that's not acceptable. It's a good illustration of the risks involved with using a cloud based infrastructure.

What I was trying to say was that out of 365 days, the system is up the majority of the time. If you have critical setups, sump pump kicking in when water detected, you can do local devices, those will work regardless. If you're really serious you would need an isy99x type controller, which is way more expensive but can do everything without the cloud
