My intial interest is to get the SENEYE stats showing in SmartThings and to be able to notify me through the ST notifications or to trigger a light to change if there is an issue or sonos to announce it . . .
Seneye is a great and affordable little system for aquarium keepers that isnt expensive like others or as complicated as others - pretty much plug and play . . .
Im not so much interested in the automation aspect of feeders or aquarium automation as i agree with the above comments . . . If someone choose to do a smartapp later that did that, then good on them, its there own choice, id probably choose not to use that… But the great thing about this is you can use and not use the features you trust or desire…
We all want the same goal, for one app to show / monitor / control our homes . . . This is just a great way to add another feature and eliminate the need for yet another app, been able to monitor these things at a quick glance on smarttiles or ST app is a very very useful tool . . . Its also another step in the right direction for ST as it could potentially open more doors down the line for siniliar stuff
As someone said above, non of the things we all do is ESSENTIAL its all choices, we coulddddd turn a switch on with a physical switch but we choose to use an app or remote or scenes in harmony etc . . .
Why wouldnt we want to be able to view the stats of everything in our house in one place, for this is everyones longterm goal.
