Just started designing this over the weekend.. here's where I'm at so far:



Ignore the duplicates, it's still a work in progress



I didn't like how the drop downs looked so I made a page that looks like a menu, it opens when you press a page title

That looks really good. I like the white on black theme.

One function that I don't see are Scenes. This is the most used screen on my app. Scenes allow you to control a number of devices for a particular activity. I have 11 scenes currently. As example, I have a scene for 'Watching TV'. It sets all the lights appropriately including some in other areas of the house. Another similar scene is 'Watching TV While Eating'. Whole different set of light levels including some in the kitchen and the path to get there.

It is easy to do scenes. Create a virtual device for the scene. In the HSTouch app, have a button to turn on that scene device. I don't actually control the actual devices for the scene in the HST app. I have an event for each scene that is triggered when the virtual scene device turns on. In that event I control the devices needed for the scene.

That's my way of doing scenes. Real easy and the logic of the scene is within the event rather than in the app.

Thank you! I'm grabbing them from the noun project, can't beat $40 a year!

Thank you! That's part of phase two for me, I'm starting with getting all my devices in the system and working as expected, then I'm going to get the automation and scenes together. I appreciate the advice on the virtual device/events for scenes in HST, I learned the hard way that I should be using events for things in the app instead of programming buttons right to devices when I had to reconfigure all of the aton buttons.

EDIT: here's some progress on the room pages (with scene's included )

So once the device selector on the left is open, you can tap any device on it and the appropriate control will show on the far right so you can control that device, then select the next one and so on...

I did that with a bit of an undocumented trick. That's why the whole project does NOT work on Android or Windows. Each version of the HS3Touch client has its own serious bugs and they all behave differently. My intended behavior with the selectors and control only works on iOS and it's closest to what I expected to happen when I designed it in the designer.

What you do is this: You have the dimmer control screen and the on/off control screen, both of them have the list of supported devices listed (just like in the sample project that ships with HS3Touch Designer. When you design your whole project for landscape and have one "screen" that controls dimming devices and you use a device selector and a dimmer is selected, that screen shows up (so far all standard). When you then create a new screen, make it PORTRAIT (even though the project is landscape) and now you define just a subgroup of devices in that screen and you call that screen from the main screen in your project, a device selector will show up, giving you only the devices provided in that "fake screen" to choose from but when you actually click one, the "fake screen" does not show up, instead the HS3Touch client skips to the next one that supports the device, in that case the dimming device controls...

So you have a MAIN screen with say for example one button Living Room Dimmers and one button Bedroom Dimmers.
You then create two fake screens with the wrong orientation and call one Livingroom and the other Bedroom. In the Livingroom screen under "supported devices" you enter Livingroom_Dimmer and in the other Bedroom_Dimmer. In the actual control screen with the slider, you put both, Livingroom_Dimmer and Bedroom_Dimmer.

Then in HS3 itself you go to all your living room dimmers and in the advances settings under device type enter Livingroom_Dimmer and for all bedroom dimmers same deal, enter Bedroom_Dimmer there.

Now on the main screen you call the fake Livingroom screen from one button and the fake Bedroom screen from the other. When you then touch the Livingroom button, a device selector will pop up, giving you only the livingroom devices, tap one and the actual control screen with the slider will show up, since it is the "next best" match for the device type "Livingroom_Dimmer".


Hope this makes sense

AWESOME find!

I have been trying to get a ceiling fan to work- its not ON/ OFF or DIMMING, any idea how to control a ceiling fan?

I created virtual devices for High, Medium, Low, Off then created events that turn them on/off when the virtual device is turned on/off and buttons on HS touch that fire the events.
