A widget or widgets to display info like power generated and power consumed on the home screen would be excellent.
Thanks for the suggestion, @michael1! Just to make sure I understand, when you say home screen, you mean the home screen of the phone, not the app, right?
Yes, That is exactly what i mean. I was previously using the enphase solar
monitoring app which provides that kind of home screen widget and it was
nice to have the info at a glance rather than needing to dig into the app
I’d like to bump this, would definitely like to see an Android widget. It could be a rather simple 1x4 that includes something like [ Sense Logo | Current Usage | Current $/Hr | Month kWh | Bill $$$ ]. I’m sure others would like to see other variants - maybe a one-liner 24H graph, or the variation above but with solar production, or instead of $ show number of devices turned on and always on / other markers. 1x1 widgets could be used to show state of individual devices - devices turned on and current usage.
I purchased Sense to make to bring attention to my power usage. I had been hoping to be able to do things like include 24H or 30-day graphs on my actiontiles wall-mount displays (I know about the third-party ST integration marked as beta), but it seems access to data is pretty much limited to opening the app… Which doesn’t exactly remind me to check / use it unless I think about it which defeats the point.
Well at least I’ve managed to add a graph of my last 24H of power usage. Disregard the bland colors, it’s meant to blend in with my ActionTiles wall tablets.
What ??? Hmm
trying to see how you did that
I’m using the SmartThings Sense handler at https://github.com/brbeaird/SmartThings_SenseMonitor to pull data into SmartThings
I then export that data as it comes in to Google Sheets using https://github.com/krlaframboise/SmartThings/blob/master/smartapps/krlaframboise/simple-event-logger.src/ReadMe.md#simple-event-logger
That data is then filtered so it only shows the last 24H of data, then it has a chart built which is published as an image URL. I can then use that image in ActionTiles and/or using an Android app that allows placing image URLs that refresh every X minutes on my phone.
