After trying Imperihome's latest version today, I wanted to suggest the following enhancements.

?   Plugin - OpenSprinkler
?   Plugin - Calculated Power Meter
?   Plugin - Wundergorund (Conditions and Wind Directions/Speed...and maybe even graphics of data for day...or animated radar map)
?   Plugin - Philips Hue Color Presets (1-6) or full color control
?      Change Tablet LCD Brightness depending on Day/Night
?   Allow MJPEG streams from Vera Configuration.  I currently have to have to add duplicate MJPEG cameras even though the DirectStreamingURL variable is configured correctly (for other remotes like AutHomation and Grasshopper)
?   Allow MJPEG streams in dashboard widget/room views (without needing to go full screen).  Faster tablets should be able to handle 10 or so MJPEG streams.   The JPEG refresh is about once every 3 seconds even though it's on continues refresh mode.
?   Add smaller tiles option (5 x 4) layout option for larger 1080p tablets
?   Allow a camera in the dashboard to flash it's background red when it's associated motion sensor is tripped.
?   Allow optional "link" to another dashboard on a composite sensors (in my instance, "Doors or Windows Open'.  This will allow you to create a dashboard page to "drill down" on what sensor is tripped. Another option is opening a menu where you allow you to individually view status/control the associated devices of a composite.
?   Show next Google Calendar appointment or task in dashboard widget.

I would like to see a larger collection of icons for greater customization. I like the style of icons included and finding decent HA icons is proving difficult. I'm especially looking for fan icons (ceiling fan and pedestal fan).

Also, it would be nice to have the option to store the alarm PIN in the settings. I know the security risk involved; you could warn users with a pop-up  message. But some of us use this on a wall mounted tablet in the home.

+1 for better tiles.

For Thermostat modes of Cooling/Heating/Fan/Off...should also have a different icon

Just noticed that Emperihome (dash view) does not support open Therm plugin; I don't need all the fancy stuff (in the widget) but I want it seen by Emperihome as a thermostat (setpoint and actual temp) like my 'old' on/off zwave one would do. Quite essential and basic functionality.

Can you please look into this and/or tell me how I need to get this working?

Like to add to the list.

When the screensaver activates the screen dims how about instead showing a nice large clock like dynamic notifications. Since installing a 10 inch tablet in my Kitchen and removing the clock I find myself looking for time and staring at a black tablet. Works good when I'm moving in-front of it though ;)

Maybe a combined door-lock and door/window sensor widget?

I found the Split system icon a little rough and ugly is there a way to edit it myself?

And still pushing for the app to be a "launcher"

Amazing app with lots of great features.  One thing I'd like to see (unless I just missed it) is the ability to change the font size for the names of tiles.   it would be easy to get too big, but there seems to be some room.  My wife is visually impaired, so any change would help.

I'm also using background colors to help her distinguish different types of devices, and I love the color selection wheel, but I find it difficult to pick the same color for multiple tiles.  Is there a way to pick a color and then use that several times?

Last request on the display readability.  Is there an easy way to pick white or black for text color?  if I use a light color background, the white text doesn't give good contrast, and the color picker doesn't let me find plain black.

Have I mentioned I love this app?  Thanks!

Is there a way to set the icon color for the alarm widget to change depending on status?
For example, I'd like it to be green when disarmed and red when armed. Just as a visual indicator that's easily discerned.

Overall, I love the app. Definitely worth the money.

Future feature

*) Ability to choose a dashboard screen that Imperihome would revert to after X seconds. e.g. to enable a 'Home' screen being the default displayed after the screen wake up

Good idea this can be done with vera and the api just send command to change page after x minutes

You would have to have the app tell the plugin on vera that the page was changed and that currently doesn't happen. I don't always change to a page to do something. sometimes it's just to check the status of something. In this case there would be no way for the Vera plugin to know to change it back after x minutes (not to mention, you'd really want after X minutes of no interaction, not just X minutes since you switched to it).
VeraLite (Live); ISY 994i (Live); Vera 3 (Waiting to replace VeraLite); Vera Edge (Waiting for all the bugs to be fixed); Xuan StackBox (Testing and waiting for more plugins and for it to mature)
Countless z-wave and insteon devices :D

One more future feature request please......

An alternative Energy gauge for Solar PV installations that has the Zero point in the top middle that then swings either left (for export, negative Watt use) or right (for import, positive Watt use). It could take the same form factor as the existing energy gauge and I reckon most of the logic has already been programmed, just really requiring support for negative wattage.

By using this new gauge with the Power Arithmetic Vera plugin (support for this in Imperihome would also be appreciated) the user would instantly be able to see what the actually, real time energy use really is in the home.

Would it be possible to home the 'rooms' from different sources / systems collapsed into a single list?

For example, I have 'bedroom' and 'home office' defined as rooms in my vera, netatmo and koubachi.  This results in 3x 'bedroom' and 3x 'home office'.

It would be a lot neater if all of the 'home office' devices were put into a single list and all of the 'bedroom' were together on another list.

Otherwise, loving the ImperiHome !

As a workaround, have one screen per physical room and place all the devices for that room on one screen. Then have one screen as in index page that contains a link to each screen/room. You could also dedicate one tile on each screen to be a 'Home' or 'Index' link - then you can navigate very quickly without any issues.
