So, as I’m adding new connected switches to the app, I’m amassing a lot of ‘Things’, but they’re hard to identify. As extensive as the icon library is, there are only so many ways you can iconize a light fixture. I noticed that you can shake the phone to reveal the names for a split second, but that’s inconvenient, and I find that I’m turning lights on and off through muscle memory alone. I can make groups of lights for rooms with several, but this gets inconsistent with a room with just one light (e.g., Laundry Room). It doesn’t fit into another category, but I can’t make single-Things their own group.
Then it occurred to me that maybe I’m using it wrong. Is “Things” supposed to just be a library, while “Lights & Switches” has the intent of setting up single or multiple groups of light switches throughout the home to be controlled? Should I set up switches for each of my Things there, and just stay out of the Things category?
