Is there a way to get an older history than one week for the temperature settings. I am looking to show renters had increased the temperature over 80 degrees and left the windows open in the house. As wel as they said the temperature was not working, but they stayed over 2 weeks ago.

Don’t think there’s anything after the fact.
But to be armed with data in the future you might want to look into this
I’ve been working on an integration between SmartThings and
https://www.constantgraph.com (which is a cloud based logging and graphing site for home automation). ConstantGraph has been working with the Ezlo/Vera platform for a while now but this is the first attempt to hook it up to SmartThings.
Is anyone interested in testing it out and giving feedback on how well the integration works? The service is completely free. Of particularly interest is anyone who has a whole home energy meter capable of logging at at least every 30 seconds or better (e.g. Aeotec HEM) as there is a feature to “disaggregate” the energy signature into the individual devices (even if there are not smart).
Once you have created an account there is an option on the account page to connect to your SmartThings acco…

They are only showing a week history on the history button:
You can also use IFTTT to log to a google sheet. I’m surprised you don’t automate the heating to shut off when doors and windows are open.

Understood. But if you set up a logging tool, you’ll be ready the next time something similar happens.
Not sure if IFTT is still working or not, but
@TAustin has also developed a Google sheet Edge driver. It requires the Edgebridge/proxy since hubs are limited to local LAN communications.
Many of us used a nice SmartApp called Simple Event Logger to post SmartThings info to a Google spreadsheet. Now what? Is there a way to do this that doesn’t require a SmartApp?
The answer is yes, with the catch that you need a SmartThings hub and an intermediate computer to bridge between Edge devices and Googlesheets. On your always-on computer like a Raspberry Pi or other, you run a very small, 30-line nodeJS app that will accept HTTP posts from Edge containing the event info and it will use the Google API to post the contents to your spreadsheet.
How do you send the HTTP requests from Edge? You can use my
Webrequestor or HTTP Devices drivers, which can be configured with the event info you want (text, number, boolean). The info is appended as a row in your spreadsheet along wit…
