That's a great idea....
I have a page per room, camera view and weather http widget and swiping between them is cool...but your idea could definitely speed things along.
Thanks!

Suggestion for Alarm Control:

For Arm, immediately open a keypad for the PIN number combined with buttons for "Away", "Stay", etc.

For Disarm, immediately open a keypad for the PIN number combined with a single button for "Disarm"

That would be awesome!

That's why i don't use the latest ImperiHome Alarm Control, additional steps. i'm doing mine with Virtual Switches and stored PINs but at least my family has only to hit a single "button" to ARM AWAY or ARM INSTANT.

I use my Yale Keypad Locks at Garage or Entryway to disarm the alarm.   It arms 60 seconds after a hit an exit button and all doors are closed for more than a a minute.  Also, I auto arm alarm/lock doors/roll down blinds after no motion detected in the house for an hour (and not bedtime) after a few audible warnings at 30, 50, 55, and 59 minutes prior.

However, it would be nice to use this as an internal home keypad to disarm the Simple Alarm Plugin via Imperihome...and protect it with a PIN(s).

I've debated using the lock keypad to disarm my DSC system and haven't decided yet. I have configuration in the alarm system PLEG to do it, it's just a matter of making the decision and turning it on.

That would be great!  I'd like to combine with the ability for VERA to make ImperiHome beep / make different sounds.

The scenario I have in mind is like a traditional burglar alarm... front door is tripped, ImperiHome device is triggered by VERA to start beeping, user enters PIN to trigger disarm / 'at home' scenes or whatever.

I have two tablets running ImperiHome, one in the Kitchen and one in the Master Bedroom. The PLEG that catches the alarm sensors is configured to have both tablets announce where the alarm is violated i.e. Garage, Study, etc.

The Kitchen tablet also announces:
- the type of Arm request "Alarm Arming Away" or "Alarm Arming Instant",
- when the "Exit Delay Active"
- and when the Alarm finally arms after the the exist delay "Alarm Armed".
Similarly it announces "Alarm Disarmed" when that cycle is complete.

I'd love to have the voice of HAL ... the kids love it when it talks to them "Sorry Dave I can't do that ... just kidding Arming Away", it would be terrific in the voice of HAL but apparently the only TTS voice available is the generic one :)

I'm considering running ImperiHome on an "old" SmartPhone to be mounted inside the Front Door and configured to arming/disarming the alarm, and controlling a few lights. The current ImperiHome mechanism is too cumbersome for this so I've been holding off. If they did implement the combined keypad/function button approach then I'll probably put the phone by the door.

Hello

One thing that I would find usefull is to be able to go directly to camera view (full screen) with an API call.

Eg. when the door bell rings, the tablet(s) will show the full camera page automatically.

You can go to a page under program control. The normal Start Page on the bedroom tablet is actually Page 1 and has a camera view, alarm controls and status and a few other things. But it also has a Page 0 that is just a single frame with nothing in it.

At 11PM the bedroom PLEG turns off the motion control of the bedroom lights and enables motion control on the ceiling fan. It also commands the ImperiHome to go to Page 0 so there isn't so much light and activity while we sleep.

At 730 AM the PLEG switches motion control back to the lights and the tablet back to the normal Start Page, Page 1. It also switches in light level controls to prevent the lights from being on if the ambient light level is above a preset value.

Hello

The camera view in full screens gives a much higher update rate of the picture, I guess using your tip would show a big picture but the update rate would be slow.

Tommy

You can actually set the update rate for the camera in the Dashboard by long tapping and selecting Configuration > Refresh Rate (I think). I have all mine set to instant.

That worked great :)
The framerate is now constant, I will try to add a large camerascreen, and then flip to it when doorbell or garagedoor is triggered.
