Smartthings and aggregating/expiring notifications


(Jim) #1

I’m loving the SmartThings app on my Windows Phone (and other phones). The Notifications though are a bit noisy, which is probably the right thing to do - though I’ve started to ignore them because I get so many, primarily at entrances.

I’ve yet to solve the problem of getting my family members to consistently wear presence tags, which means I get notifications of the door opening and closing constantly, motion sensors triggering, etc. I can mute some of them by setting a particular time window, however…

I know android at least offers the ability to aggregate notifications, an I believe expire them as well. Is there any possibility the mobile apps will start to take advantage of these platform features to make notifications more useful?
