Not sure if this is the right vehicle for this kind of feedback, but here it goes.

In my scenario I have people generally coming into my house a particular day of the week, so I have a PIN for them that is restricted from 9AM to 5PM on that particular day. However, every now and then we have to re-schedule and that particular visit happens on a different day of the week.

When that happens I need to remove the restriction and add a new one for the new day of the week with the same PIN. I would love to have a few restrictions (say, 3 or 4) with checkboxes beside them that would allow me to turn the restrictions for a particular day on or off. That would be easier than manually removing and creating a new restriction every time we have to re-schedule.

Would something like that make sense?

Thanks!

I'm working on a plugin right now at the request of another community member to ease programming and management of lock codes. It's got a couple of features that might ease your pain, and I'm happy to look at other requests as well.

Awesome, rigpapa. I'd love to try it when it's ready, if you're looking for some test coverage.

I have a good beta. I'll roll up a package for you. Do you use the MiOS WWN plugin for Nest?

I emailed you a beta package on 7/29 in response to your PM to me. If you don't have it, check your Spam/Junk folder.

Yes, I will probably release this into the eco-system in a month or two. There are a couple of features I want to add, most notably house-wide codes that are programmed on all locks, so you don't have to duplicate codes and schedules on every lock; a panic feature to disable all codes but one; and one-time use codes.
