That’s pretty cool. Works on my iPhone app. Not my android app though.
@Ben do you know the limitations of these graphs? I’d love to show a ton of stuff :). I’m imagining a way to see how “active your house was” today. Generating home reports off this data. Like a notification that will tell you some cool stuff
Maybe stuff like the following:
- Min and max temps/light/and humidity values for the day.
- Your doors were open for X amount of time
- Central air ran for 37 minutes today
- Your dog peed on the rug 9 times today… I hope not but illustrate the limitlessness haha.
Then you could start to correlate this stuff and use some cool equations and statistical mapping that would tell you how efficient your home is… like you kept your doors/window were open 13 minutes longer than normal today and your thermostat ran 47 minutes longer as a result. Or… your thermostat ran for 13 minutes total today and cost $13 (because you provided smartthings with your heaters KwH rating)… how cool is that!?
Then you could participate in a community that would rank you among people in the community for whose home is the most efficient and who was the busiest today… who waters there plants the best… whose house has the cleanest air… compete with family members… compete with the world… it would be awesome!
Oh!!! Another idea!!! Smartthings people in the area could sign up for a neighborhood watch type thing!!! For instance, Ben, Twack, and I live near each other and we want to keep an eye on our houses. When I am away and something “weird” happens at my house Twack and Ben will get a notification that there is motion on 3 motion sensors and my back door was opened. They can go check it out for me! How cool would that be! The “SmartThings Family” watching out for each other… Neighborhood watch brought a step ahead by the IoT!!
These types of things are why smartthings is the best option for smart homes!!!
Due to it being in the cloud the possibilities are endless and I am really looking forward to the next steps as far as community and daily outputs of how your house operates!!!
Super exciting stuff!!
Sorry for the random rant lol.
