My apologies if there is another way to do this, but I couldn’t find any info about this anywhere.
It would be nice to have a “lock out” feature on an outlet/switch to prevent it from being turned on or off until it’s manually unlocked (in the app).
The idea is this: I have a server connected to an Aeon Labs DSC06106. I like having the power monitoring and the ability to “flip the switch” remotely if something happens (server stops responding, for example). The issue is that it’s extremely easy to press the icon in the ST app and turn off the server by accident. It would be nice that on the “settings” page for the DSC06106, there is a “lock” option to prevent random on/off switches.
I haven’t looked closely at the SmartThings Apps. I’m a developer by trade, and use triggers all the time in SQL. Maybe there could be something like a pre-event trigger App that runs before the light/switch changes states?
Thanks for the AWESOME products! So much better than the TCP Connected app I was used to!
