    Any chance we will see this awesome plug-in available in the Amazon Appstore? I want it EVERYWHERE!

    Does this work with Android 11?
    I can't get it to enable geolocations. Keep getting the failed to enable service message.

    I haven’t found a way to imbed a hyperlink which would be great. I guess it’s just laziness but it would be great. I created a virtual device with a device string with the URL and “Click Me” for status which works great in HS but because it is really a html command obviously nothing in HSBuddy. I do have a “Video Link” device created by the Nest plugin that does work in HSBuddy click on the “Click Me” and the ipad browser opens and goes to the Nest site- I haven’t tried to dissect that device yet.

    It would be nice to implement a NFC function. Set a NFC tag which, when read, can start an event or action.
    This function could be phone dependent, so that the same NFC tag has a different function e.g for my wife or kids.
    Since the app. is running on mobile phones the NFC function is already present.

    What do you think?

    Hi! Potentially but not in the short term. As a workaround you can create homescreen shortcuts to set devices to a particular value. Though certanily not as flexible as a widget.

    It is possible to do have a button to open a different dashboard as its primary action, but it's not possible to assign a chain of actions to the same widget (e.g. run an event and open a dashboard). As a temporary workaround, one option could be to make the button for the activity (e.g. "Cable TV") open the specific dashboard, and have at the top of the dashboard a button to 'launch' the activity? It's still 2 taps instead of 1, but this setup may be convenient as in cases when the activity is launched differently (e.g. with Alexa, or a physical remote control)

    I'll consider this feature, compound actions on a widget, for a future change. Thank you for the suggestion!

    I have a dashboard to run events as part of my home theater setup.
    the dashboards are Home Theater, Cable TV, Kodi, PLEX, DVD, Lighting, etc.

    It would be great if when I pressed the “Watch TV” button on the “Home Theater” dashboard it would not only run the associated event, but also switch to the “Cable TV” dashboard. Or when I pressed the DVD button it would automatically switch the the “DVD” dashboard that has the DVD player controls.

    is something like this possible?

    Hey folks,

    Starting a thread to capture your ideas of new features that could be built into HSBuddy (either the app or the server plug-in). I know you have previously sent me some via the app built-in bug report tool, or through private messages in the board. I'm hoping that this thread will be a more permanent place to keep track of those ideas.

    To start, let me seed the list with the ones in the top of my backlog:
    • User-defined dashboards of devices
    • Add support to connect to multiple servers
    • Controlling timers and counters from their device details page
    • Showing device history as a graph
    • Implement user validation, require special user rights to access certain plug-in functionality
    If you have other ideas or if you want to add details on how any of the ideas above should be implemented, feel free to post below. Thank you for giving the app a try, thank you for leaving a review (if you like it) and sending your bug reports (if you don't).
    Hi, how about adding a device (ZWAVE..whatever) via the QR code on it? Thx

    That isn't possible with HSBuddy yet. For the time being, there's a possible workaround using the EasyTrigger plugin from spud - this can be accomplished using a virtual device, a device group and an event. For example, an event to add the kwH measurement from multiple devices would look something like this:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	Screen Shot 2021-01-20 at 9.27.39 AM.png

    Then in HSBuddy a widget for the virtual device can be addd to the dashboard and it will handle value updates like other devices. Fwiw, the EasyTrigger plugin supports much more than just the scenario described above, I use it extensibly on my own HS server.
    Very cool solution. Thank You. I really didn't want to increase the complexities of HS if at all possible.

    Would it be possible to add this functionality to HS Buddy in the future? I use a lot of totals in ImperiHome.
