Will there (eventually) be some special handling for the upcoming motion sensors? I can see having at least a couple in my HA network.
I would also suppose that they could be managed through macros… but being able to set an ‘ignore’ window after the sensor is ‘tripped’ would be nice.
I’m looking forward to the thermostat support. Hopefully soon I’ll be getting at least one. Will there be support for polling the thermostat? Would be nice to monitor temperatures remotely.
You will be able to use the refresh command to manually poll the thermostat. Also, the timers will allow for setting setpoints.
For the motion sensor, we will see how it works when it comes out – however the ignore window is not a bad idea regardless.
Looking forward to the new changes. I hope the motion sensors will be handy. I know of a couple ways I could use them, so I might end up with a couple or three.
What might also be cool would be to be able to group timers – specifically timers for a thermostat, so you can easily view (and edit) your thermostat schedule. Just a thought. 😉
