The Ability to Hide
« on: November 21, 2017, 06:09:35 pm »
My Vera UI is extremely cluttered up even after divided into rooms. There are essiental devices or child devices that are very necessary but will never be read nor controlled. I would love to hide unnessary devices that dont matter while still keeping them connected.

You can set the "invisible" attribute on a device (identified by its device number) by entering the following code into Apps > Develop Apps > Test Luup Code

luup.attr_set("invisible", "1", devicenumber)

This will remove them from the UI, but will not remove them from places where devices may be selected, such as plugins that read or manipulate devices, or scene programming.

I seldom look at the UI, only when tweaking settings or chasing a problem. I prefer VeraMate, which allows you to customize what you see.  My main screen is pretty simple.
