Title: Zhouse Electric Widgets v1.2
Post by: zhouse on January 09, 2013, 01:09:45 pm
We added new widgets 1x1 size to the Electric pack. Also removed some bugs. How do You like glass design?

Design is awesome, these widgets look great, and work reaonably well.  Only had an issue once that required reboot to re-link the widgets so far.

Need to add Scene widgets, this would be much more useful for people with larger systems.

The Zhouse widget is good idea, i tested yesterday! Very cool with etc. "live-wallpaper" in background. 8)
But, my configuration is:
4 dimmable lights 
6 switch plugin moduls
6 "Virtual Switchs"
4 Thermostats
32 scenes
And the widget is preferred only dimmable light and switch. This is a 20 % in my system :(
In the future is maybe widget scene, widget THERMOSTAT and widget "VirtualSwitch" ?
And the widget is too light (only with dark background useable)

Too brightness widget (neon green) if the background is light :(
The percent (100%) is out of line/border :(

Hi Piwtorak,

Hopefully you have installed both the main zhouse and zhouse widget apps as you need both. On newer android versions you use the "widgets" tab located beside the "apps" tab when viewed from the apps home-screen. You should see  a couple of zhouse widget shortcuts that you can select from.

Cheers
Tim

Yes I have bought and installed the main and widget app.

I want use widget app because your design to operate my lights is better.

I will try locate again... and create a shortcut to widget app. this could be automatic, I do not understand because the android system do not create a shortcut for widget like made for the another app from zhouse.

thanks for help !

I am unable to view my camera through this app. It is a Linksys WVC54GCA on an Galaxy-S4. Has anyone else had issues with viewing cameras? Is there any known issues fixes/workaround for this?
I click on the camera link, the blue circle shows for a second and then nothing, following this a big  blue circle shows anywhere I touch the screen.
