Re: More Features... TP-Link and ...

Yes, the scene control works flawlessly with the current interface, which just turns on the settings for the selected scenes and has a separate off button to turn off anything that in the scene that is powered on. But, if I made it a collection view, then users would expect it to toggle and it would...

Re: More Features... TP-Link and ...

looking back at it, I just realized that you were asking for a collection view for scenes. I haven't done this yet. Here is one problem with a scene collection similar to the Group Control that would work as an on/off toggle: A group or scene that has multiple devices will need to check the on/off s...

Re: More Features... TP-Link and ...

I just set up the TP-Link functionality. I am trying to limit this to TP-Link smart-plugs at this point, since that is all I have tested. I have it working using an HS100 smart plug that looks just like the one in your top image. It works perfectly using this model. This is all I have to test, but i...

Re: More Features... TP-Link and ...

Victor, TP-Link seems to have a published API for controlling devices. A quick google search produced this: http://itnerd.space/2017/06/19/how-to-authenticate-to-tp-link-cloud-api/ I would need to buy a TP-Link device to ensure my code works and test it though. At some point, I might do this. What T...

App Store screenshots

The App Store is very picky about screenshot resolutions and even then it downscales the images when viewed in the store. Following are the current App Store screenshots in full resolution. The Device List, Menubar Control, and Group Control windows: https://homecontrol.citybasehub.com/screenshots/1...

Scene Duplication

Scene duplication is accessible by right clicking on the scene in the Scene List. This makes it easy to create multiple scenes with the same or similar devices.

WeMo Auto-Discovery

An auto-discovery has been implemented that will automatically find all Belkin devices on the network. It works perfectly in my testing on a home-based class-C network and can add Wemos that have never been seen before. The option to input an ip address is still available for any users with complica...

Scene Effects Available!

This is just something fun that I was playing around with. Scene Effects can be applied to a scene. This option supports Hue lights only, and color-capable Hue lights should be used for maximum effect. The effects can be applied to any scene, regardless of the devices, but only the Hue lights presen...

Many scene timers can be added and set to any time, however, two different scene timers cannot have exactly the same time to the ...

Many Hue Bridges Now Supported!

So I received a request to implement support for more than one Hue bridge. This was from a user with 4 Hue Bridges (Philips recommends no more than 50 lights per Hue Bridge). So this is a guy with somewhere around 200 Hue lights... an awesome amount of devices for any app to handle. HomeControl alre...
