    That's a streamdeck issue. If you highlight all text in a field and then overtype it will work. A number of plugins have this issue. I think I need to dispose of the timer to prevent it from firing. But don't know what interface I need to do it in that doesn't leave it permanently disposed. But it's not often I change something once in place so haven't seen the need to look more in depth
    Will have to test that later. Do you have any plans to expand it for like a thermostat or other sensors to show their value?

      i don't currently have plans, however would be relatively simple to implement, the source code for this project is currently public and available here should you want to expand on it.

          Im on a Mac, so I cant really test it. Does it reflect the status of the devices in HS?

            Can already attest that it does this for dimmers, lights, and switches. Obviously for a switch it looks off with the light-bulb, but the ease in usage is worth it.

            For dimmers it only works on two values, but I'm using 255 (Last) for On, and 0 for Off.

            I've only got the 3-rows with 5-columns model Stream Deck, and already wishing I got the larger one

            Stream Deck supports folders though, so 15 buttons can be transferred into 15 folders with each their own 14 buttons (one is reserved to navigate upwards).

            So, at 3-levels deep you could add 15 * 14 * 14 = 2,940 HomeSeer actions, but I'm happy with the 5 that I added on main screen for now to quickly control a few devices.

            PS: Speed is incredible, almost feels instant both in action as in display feedback to show status when pushing button on device, and at a max like a quarter to half a second when using my phone to initiate the action before Stream Deck updates status to match.

              Well. I could use a multi action switch, that's indicated as a switch with on/off pictures, but its not reflected by the real HS status.

              Now I need to find a small factor Windows PC for this project and a USB <-> cat 5 adaptor to get the stream deck up on the wall

                Would it not be easier just to use a tablet with software icons controlled by HS to replicate this?

                  The reason why Stream Deck works for me, is because it is on my office desk connected to the PC already there. If you want to control multiple devices/scenes from other locations in the house perhaps think through on what you are after. Most likely the control spot you have in mind is near a light switch, so you can replace that with a HomeSeer WD200+ one that has 7x LED feedback indicators and room for 14 triggers. You can expand it otherwise or use it for areas that don't have easy access to power with an Aeotec Wallmote Quad next to it for an additional 16-scene control with haptic feedback.

                  As jon00 mentioned, a tablet running a HSTouch interface might be more what you are after if there is a need for advanced visual feedback (status/graphs/animations/etc.)

                    You probably need to edit the PluginActionPI.html file. I think each of the five properties should have an oninput="setSettings()" attribute, not just the last one.

                    If you don't want to edit that file, it's possible that just changing the last property and back might save the other changes, but I haven't tested that.

                      Although Elgato state that you cannot run a Stream Deck over a long USB lead because of the power requirement to run the in-built screen, I am happily running mine over a 10-metre (i.e. 30-foot) 'active' USB lead that includes a plug-in power amplifier half way along it. Search for 'USB Active Extension Cable With Signal Booster' on Amazon.
