Hi, wondering if anyone else are doing something along these lines.
I have several devices for which I wish to offer a set of choices using tiles.
Example 1: Run poolpump at 1200, 2900 or 3450 rpm
Example 2: Run sprinklers for 5, 10 or 20 minutes.
Example 3: Pan outdoor camera to position 1,2,3...N
So far I've manage to McGyver this by creating tiles for virtual switches and having a CASE statement in webcore turn the others off when one is pushed, setting variable values as required (if anyone wants to know how to set it up, contact me separately):
the above all works nicely, but it's slooow. Some times it can take up to 5-8 seconds before the previous button in an emulated radio button set is released as I have to wait for webcore to flip the other switches and do it's thing.
Dear Terry/Alex. Was wondering if you had given though to if it was possible to somehow bring this capability into AT? As I'm sure you'd agree given the few examples above, the possibilities are vast and many.
I suppose that besides my webcore-frankensteining multiple tiles into one radio-button, there are other more neat and efficient ways to implement a selection GUI element (perhaps a single tile offering the equivalent of dropdown selection box?)
However I guess the real question is how to communicate said selection back to smartthings. What if it was agreed to use a custom virtual button/button panel DTH, where the button pressed was equivalent to the selection? Would that make any sense?
Even though this feature request probably would not be around the corner any time soon, I'd love to hear your initial thoughts on it
