Notification of Tile updates with temporary "pulse" highlighting...

It would be really neat if there was an option to highlight tiles whose status has just changed somehow. Like maybe pulse the tile background for a few seconds. This would be especially helpful for "passive" tiles such as motion and contact sensors to draw your attention to them when motion starts/stops or a door opens/closes.

With the new high visibility themes and being able to set an alternative highlight color with tile intentions, I think my original suggestion is kind of moot now. The combo of these 2 new features makes it really easy to get a good idea of the state of my things at a glance and draws my attention when something changes.

Really interesting idea, thanks!

Personally I'm not super inclined to find it valuable, because I wonder how many folks are vigilantly watching their Panels for activity. But then again, if at some point we add notification sounds, then customers would have a reason to glance over to see the reason for the notification and a "pulsing" Tile appearance of the relevant Tile(s) would be useful...

I think it could be most useful for people who *aren't* vigilantly watching but have AT running on a device to the side somewhere. For example, I usually leave AT open on my iPhone which most of the time I keep it on a charging dock on a side table. If my tiles pulsed or something when something happened it would draw my attention and let me know there'd been some kind of activity.
