I’m getting ready to install a hub and a few devices for my daughter’s new house. She is in TX, I am in NC. I would like to be able to manage the setup remotely, and I’m not quite sure how to do that. Can I just add her house as a second location? I don’t want her to have access to my location, but obviously I want her to be able to manage it. I’ve seen a few older conversations on here, but was wondering if maybe a suggested way of doing this was now more well known.
Yes, you can add it as a second location. As for not having access to your location, the granularity of users needed for this ability does not yet exist in ST.
SmartTiles (browser based Community developed slim front-end) is an option for this scenario because you can create up to 5 Dashboards per Location and the access key is unique to each Dashboard. Thus you can distribute the URIs for specific limited function dashboards as desired … they don’t even have to be Locations under the same Account. PM me for assistance with the concept if this is off-Topic.
Thanks I will follow up when I get the new location created
I setup my parents with their own account, and then invited myself from their end. I can see everything of theirs and do everything I need to do. But I dont’ think they have access to my home or work locations. Maybe I better check sometime though.
That should work. You can see all locations under the account for which it was created.
Cool, that’s what I’m hoping. I will let everyone know in a couple weeks when I get the new one setup.
Hopefully there’s been enough time since your first post to answer this question. I just setup our animal hospital and I want our employees to have access to turn on/off the alarm mode. I plan to setup another system at home. If my wife is the admin at home and she invites me, and I’m the admin at work and I invite her, will that keep our employees from having access to our home system?
