I’d like to see a “Smartthings Caching-Proxy” device that allows the SmartThings Hub to work even if there’s a service interruption in the cloud. Or the network gets disconnected.
Could be as simple linux device running the Squid Proxy with a custom SmartThings module that caches calls/responses to and from the smartthings server. If the internet is down it does into replay mode and uses a previous response.
I’d really like a standalone solution that works at home, so it doesn’t have to call home. But I would accept something like this that still allows the device use the cloud service but also allows it to work when there are service or connectivity disruptions.
Danfoss LC-13 ‘Living Connect’ Radiator Thermostat valve would be great. In a lot of older apartment blocks, here in Europe, the heating is done off a central boiler through radiators in each room. This valve allows you to control the temperature in each room by controlling the valves individually.
the only available out of the box remote accessible (storage) gas water heater solution is rheem, its home depots main brand for water heaters, same infrastructure is used for rheem hvac, right now only econet or homedepot’s hub “wink” (http://www.wink.com/products/rheem-econet-water-heaters/) works with it, this needs to be bumped up in priority. if not then some other gas water heater (whirlpool 6th sense?) needs to be supported, there are no gas water heaters being supported with smartthings hub currently.
It takes 2 hands to clap. I’m pretty sure SmartThings are proactively seeking out to integrate with Rheem, it’s really up to Rheem if they are willing to do their part.
The use case for water heater isn’t a lot. However, I’ve wrote this device type for water heater only if you’re interested. It’s still a little buggy. I haven’t have the time to write the SmartApp to change the temperature when away.
I would really like to see the ability to control the Emerson Sensi Thermostat. It is a great thermostat with rock solid mechanical relays. Integration with Smartthings is all that is needed. It is the only reason I still have the Wink hub.
