Please add battery view

Please add a dedicated view in the app that shows the battery status of every sensor at a glance.

I want to be able to check the status of all my sensors in ten seconds and know if any need maintenance. If the app happens to know the type of battery needed it would be helpful if it showed that too, and if it doesn’t it would be nice if I could set it from a list and have it remember it for next time.

A while ago I put together a parent/child SmartApp to give me a view like you want. You can select as many or as few devices as you want, as well as add as many child apps as you’d like to categorize them:


Code if you’d like to give this a try: (save and publish parent first, and then just save the child app in the IDE)

John, that is cool, and I may try it later, but it’s also something that ought to be built in, because once you have a handful of SmartThings devices it gets ridiculous checking them all individually.

I use Action Titles to give me an at a glance view of all my battery levels.

Here’s another option for device battery monitoring, and a whole lot more.
