Thoughts on Thermostats?

The dashboard is looking better all the time. I have never seen the need to have one but may have to set-up a wall mounted “command center” just for the cool factor. Could you use the dashboard to disable SHM by entering a pin? Just a thought instead of using an IRIS keypad.


Yes! I’d like to get SHM, Modes, and Routines in. I need to think through how to handle PINs. Doing it client side would be quick and easy, but I’d need to think through the security aspects of it. Alternatively I could think through an extensible way to do this server side as I’d like it to apply to Thing tiles as well. I’m thinking some people might want to PIN protect locks or other Things.
