Hey Friends! Hope your day is going well My friend and I have been working on a web app that lets you control your smart devices as well as build automations. We enable you to do this with a simple GUI, no coding required
Today I’m excited to share with you our progress and ask for your help with beta testing our project Thanks to some of our super early beta users in the community, we have been able to refine our dashboard.
Our latest update gives you the ability to create “device groups” to organize your devices into different tabs as well as re-order them. These features out of from feedback we received from users who needed to organize their ever-growing collection of devices.
Beyond the dashboard, we have also been working on our automation builder. The main idea is that you can use a library of pre-built blocks to make whatever automation you want. The automation builder is not available in this release but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of our progress
Give our project a try and please give us any feedback – the good, the bad, and the ugly. We want to create the best experience possible for you so any feedback is much appreciated. This is beta software and our first time writing a SmartApp so there will be bugs Report them in the comments and I’ll address them ASAP!
Installation is simple, just visit http://homeflow.io/signup and create an account. From there the web app will prompt you with instructions to install the smart app.
Updating a device works but the dashboard does not update?
Make sure that in your SmartApp you have clicked “done” to fully install the app.
Here is a picture of my set up, currently have Homeflow running on a Amazon Fire Tablet attached to my wall.
