Limit access to individual sensors by user?



Is there a way to do this ? I put the ST app on my son’s iPhone to report presence (arrival/departure), but now he’s figured out he can go into the app and manually override my limits on his Nest thermostat. I want to keep him from being able to access that device from the app. Thx.


Not within the ST app. You might consider ActionTiles for his phone.

We engineered this specifically as a feature in ActionTiles

  1. Any dashboard Panel of sensor/actuator Tiles can be securely shared in view-only on full-control mode, instantly revocable, to any other password protected ActionTiles Account, without any risk of the “Buddy” gaining any other access or permissions.

  2. At a more granular level, most Tile types can be additionally protected with a PIN set by the Panel creator. Thus, a shared household Panel for lighting control and viewing sensor status, etc., can have their Lock Tiles, SHM, Garage Door, etc. be played around with by kids, guests, or intruders. Thermostat Tile currently does not offer the PIN option, but it will in the next update or so. (Meanwhile, #1 will protect your Thermostat).
