I hope this is not explicitly a duplicate topic (I looked for a while to find one in the forums, but nothing exactly matches).
The question is;
Is it possible to write our own user interface to replace the mobile app provided?
The way I would want to do this, is using a web-based portal, or even a custom Android or iOS app. Those deployments would require the ability to access the SmartThings ecosystem via web service calls (I SUPPOSE???) in Java and/or Objective C++, or whatever language my web server would be implemented in.
The reason would not be due to a dissatisfaction with the existing apps, they are great!
I have requirements to integrate the programmatic control of, and get notifications from the SmartThings hub and its devices as part of a larger application, and ecosystem that includes the SmartThings hub.
This larger system has a scope beyond what SmartThings can control, but the requirements are such that my users (me and my family and whomever else I give my software to), do not want to navigate to multiple apps, pressing different buttons and menus in each app just to control the whole set of devices.
Okay, maybe I would design the UI differently as well, but let’s chalk that one up to me not maturing in my UI design skills yet.
