Any plans for a floor layout?
« on: March 26, 2012, 12:50:28 pm »
I want to first say, great job on Home Buddy.  It is my go-to Android app for controlling my Z-Wave system.

The one feature I would really like would be a floor plan view.  It would be nice, especially on tablets, to see a layout of my house with the zwave devices that I could just click on from there to control.  The InControl app has a basic version of this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.moonlitzwave.incontrol&feature=also_installed#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEwNCwiY29tLm1vb25saXR6d2F2ZS5pbmNvbnRyb2wiXQ.
I'm not sure how easy/hard this would be as you would need to be able to import an image of the house layout and then allow the devices found on Vera to be moved to their locations.

Just my feature request, but it's a great app already.
Thanks

No plans at the moment but I'll add it to the list.  Didn't the Vera UI have this at one point?  Not sure if I'm missing it or if it was dropped... does anyone know?

I'm not sure why it was dropped.  I only started using the Vera with UI4 so I never experienced it.
I think the feature is more for showing the system off to the people  ;D  People think its cool to see the layout of the house, see the zwave devices, and control them all from that view.

Great work with Home Buddy already though.  I'm looking forward to when the new version is out of beta.
