Title: Widget showing status of light
Post by: SloDK on October 11, 2013, 12:17:12 pm
Hi
Is there a widget (in Home Buddy or another app) that shows the current status of a device, like a  lamp or a switch?
It would be cool if it also allowed one to interact with the lamp, just like you can do it in the app.
It would make our alarm system more wife friendly if I can put an alarm switch (with current status) directly on the frontpage of our android tablet.

Homebuddy does not, but you might want to look at ZHouse. The widget api for Android is a little limited on what can be done for the UI portion. HomeBuddy allows for running scenes via home screen shortcuts. AutHomationHD (my app) allows for home screen shortcuts of performing an action of a scene or device. ZHouse has a few widgets, but you have to pay for them. Not sure what ImperiHome offers.
