Is there an API call or method of location to retrieve the Group Names? I couldn’t find it anywhere. @Jim
No, there are no APIs to get group/room data.
Thanks Jim … so how does the IDE return Room names when you select a location?
When I say no APIs, I am referring to any APIs available to SmartApps or Device Types. There are internal APIs that are used by the mobile app or the IDE.
Okay - got it. So any chance you would expose the Room names? I am writing a panel app where Things are organized into Tabs and some of my beta testers are asking for the Tabs to initially reflect the Rooms they have in the IDE.
I would like to see that, but I’m not aware of any near-term plans to add APIs for getting rooms info in a SmartApp or Device Type.
This has been asked for… About 4 years.
I guess the past is not a prediction of the future, though, right?
Otherwise we have at least another 2.5 years until SHM gets entry & exit grace delays, or Bluetooth, or migration tool or…
(or… Insert any long requested Feature name here: but note: we did get tablet / landscape mode for the SmartThings App. Miracles happen!)
