Hi there – hoping someone has made some progress with Fan control. It’s absolutely unbelievable that no one has created a device for this as yet. There’s a gigantic gap in the smart home, and while things like SimpleConnect START to solve that, they don’t realize they need to be part of the bigger community.
@fbrennan – any luck on your reverse compiled edition? I’m not sure what kind of system you were imagining that to run on (maybe something running Java with a bluetooth adapter?) to connect to it.
An interesting feature idea would be writing API code to download to the SmartThings hub running in a separate memory space so as not to allow contamination of the existing core that introduces new features and allows connection to new types of devices without requiring ST to do all the work themselves. I’m relatively new to the community, so I’ve not seen any options for anything like that, especially with Bluetooth devices where IFTTT isn’t an option.
Thoughts? I’ve half a mind to go develop a hardware device to do this via Zigbee or one of the other protocols. I’ve got a hardware team who can have this ready in 6 weeks, if there was enough interest, but if there really is something coming or something that works without 1000 leaps between systems, I’d rather use that than build something that only has a life of 1-2 years.
