Slideable Event Timeline

Hey guys, I wanted to put in a Feature request for a smart home timeline with a slideable method. The idea is to have a timeline for a full 24 hour period (customizable time frame) in which the user can slide a scroller right or left which will display a device and it's action. Specific devices can be added or excluded. This could give you an idea of not just what's happening 'right now' but what's happened in the last say five minutes, what's the progression? etc.

Here's an example:

Someone breaks into your house, but you weren't able to catch them on camera somehow. Maybe your camera was on the fritz or something, who knows. You don't know where in the house the burgler was at to do finger print collections. So, you turn to your smart home and look at the time frame you knew he was in the house, and you see he entered through the downstairs back door left window, set off the motion sensor, and then opened the kitchen cabinet. Now, he may have wiped off the kitchen cabinet, but he might not have wiped off the wall he had to of put his hand on to step over the baby gate, so you know to check the wall for prints, knowing that at specific time he went that way and then exited an entirely different way.

Just one example out of many, I think this would be a fantastic addition to the ActionTiles family.

Definitely a great use case example for Event History data and UI, Eric ... Thank-you!

Building the infrastructure for Event History is ... in R&D mode. The use case examples help us get the design right.
