I would like to see a desktop app for controlling SmartThings (that lives in the menubar). I discovered an application that lets me do some simple turning on and off of switches; however, I would like a company supported one. I have a desktop server that runs all the time at home so I have some feature requests below.
Ideas I had for the app include:
Webcam implementation - Turn your desktop webcam into a instant “Dropcam” that takes photos based on triggers from other devices (motion, sensors, etc). Store photos taken from all webcam devices to the hard drive (Dropcam Connect) so they are easily saved for security purposes.
Audio implementation - Similar to the Sonos integration, but directly from your desktop.
Simple device control - Lights/switches on/off, etc - device setup can still be left to the
