After having switched from Iris which had some nice features for controlling of devices and having been on ST for about three weeks, I feel I must be missing something…
For example I have an AEON Multisensor. It shows temp, light lux and records some of that under the recent tab but it doesnt chart or graph anything. No customization, nothing. I expected some additional features. Maybe the ability for it to turn on a light if the light lux is below a certain level… Nope. Lux is just information. Has no controls or commands for automations. Same for it’s temp sensor.
I have an energy monitor also, but havent hooked it up, but I am guessing its not going to do much other than show exactly how much energy is being used. Again, probably no charting or recording or graphing.
Who makes the interface for each connected device? Are they asleep at the wheel or just waiting for someone else to write the code for their widget?
I have two different types of RGB lights and each controller looks different in the ST interface. One has presets the other does not, and neither allows you to store a custom color value. Are these interfaces made by Samsung or the makers of the light controllers? Fibaro and Lightify in my case. Both are crude and super basic.
I just expected so much more. My Samsung camera has a microphone, why not a RGB or Hue party mode that has the RGB lights create a light show based on the music or sound the microphone hears? Is it just that this is all so new and nobody has thought of doing this stuff yet, or am I completely missing something here?
Thanks for the feedback!
