Two enhancement requests: one obvious, one less so
« on: September 12, 2016, 01:00:37 am »
The obvious one (to me at least) would be to add a screen saver that basically turns the screen into a slideshow of your stored photos.  I have two (so far) wall mounted tablets that have Homewave running on them and I just have them on all the time (no lockout time).  Would be nice to go to a photo slide show.  Would be even nicer if the slide show turned off if you walked past it.  I know a different Android based vera control has the camera as a wakeup trigger so I know theoretically it is possible.

The other one is a little more probably just for me, but the ability to add non-dimmable to devices to a group dimmer control.  Example:  I have a series of lights in my basement that are controlled by a group dimmer.  I usually just tap on/off and don't use the dimming capability.  Even though I can add an additional (non-dimmable) light to the control it isn't turned off by it.  I know this functionality is supported because through the pi bridge echo combination I can say set basement at 60% and all of the dimmable lights go to 60% and the non dimmable just turn on.

Both of these make sense.  I'll see about adding them, but it'll probably be in the combined iOS / Android version as that is taking all of my attention at the moment.  For the time being I don't plan on adding a lot of new functions to the current iOS version, though I am working on a new release with a few bug fixes (related to remote connectivity).  Perhaps I will manage to add this as well.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.
