Have you ever thought to yourself “I’d love if Sense could alert me when a device has been on for too long”? Well so did we, and now you can with custom device notifications!
New Notifications Screen
With a new set of notifications, we figured it was time that notifications got a screen of their own. Just tap ‘Notifications’ on a device’s details to see its alert settings. There, you can enable the old notifications that you know and love, like ‘Show on Timeline’ and the newly separated ‘Alert me when it turns ON’/’Alert me when it turns OFF’ (formerly known as ‘Enable Alerts’), as well as the new custom device notifications.
Custom Device Notifications
With a tap of the ‘+’ sign, you can add a new custom alert for the device. Just select the state (ON/OFF) and the amount of time to set the alert (from minutes to days). Want an alert when your oven has been left on? Assuming you don’t do a ton of slow cooking, ‘Alert me if the Oven is ON for 1 HOUR 15 MIN’ will do the trick! Save multiple alerts per device, and remove them by tapping ‘Delete Alert’ on the alert’s screen.
