  1. Native Mobile App

    A native mobile app would improve using Initial State on a mobile device. The mobile-reactive website is fantastic, but I'd like to see more features built for mobile

      Allow the data in the visualization apps to be shown in a user-specified timezone other than the browser's default. Additionally, allow this feature in the raw data view as well.

        • Create a custom tile view with data from different buckets

          Maybe it would be good to be able to create a custom tile view with tiles from different bucket feeds.

          • Control Functionality

            Control by interaction with a Tile, or control by webhook fired on trigger action.

            Ideas:
            Toggle Button Control. Provide a visual representation of a toggle button, allow the user to select and have it toggle. Each toggle would timestamp the event. Provide a HTTP GET to allow for the reading of the latest value and timestamp of the toggle button.

            Slider: Provide a visual representation of a slider with the ability to define min/max/step/[horizontal|vertical] values. Allow a user to move the slider and timestamp the settled on value. Provide a HTTP GET to allow for the reading of the latest…

            • Trigger on no data received

              Add a new Trigger when data not received for stream key within a period of time.

              For example, send an SMS or email when <Stream Key> has not been received for <X>mins (or <Y>hrs).

              This would be useful for background performance monitoring.

                  • Support for multiple SmartThings hubs in one Initial State account.

                    I'd love to be able to configure multiple SmartThings hubs to stream to a single Initial State account.

                    • Provide secondary Y-axis for dissimilar signals

                      For both Lines and Tiles... Provide a secondary Y-axis so signals with dissimilar values (such as a freezer with temperatures around 0, and power/wattage which exceeds 100), so one value doesn't get overshadowed by the other.

                        • Deleting a bucket should free up the bucket_key used to create it

                          I want the ability to delete a bucket and reuse the bucket_key of that deleted bucket to create a new bucket.

                          I understand that bucket_keys are unique per access_key (currently) but when I delete a bucket, I want to be able to use the same key again to create a new bucket.

                          • Ability to send configuration back to the device

                            Field entry tiles on the Events screen... boolean switch, dropdowns, fields etc.

                            As the iot device executes a push event, it receives a return object which contains these parameters.

                            Use these to remotely change device parameters, reconfigure, enter different behaviour modes etc.

                            • Command buttons

                              Provide small command button tiles which can communicate back to your agent. This would be used to provide manual control of actuators (or other things) by clicking the button. The button click would be programmed with programmer defined messages to send back to your agent for processing.

                                  Right now, all epoch time stamps are automatically displayed to show time for the time zone of the browser viewing the data. If you have data that doesn't make sense in a different time zone, there should be a configuration setting to allow data to be displayed for a specific time zone. So if my data is read in UTC-5 but viewed in UTC-8 the data should be displayed in UTC-5 time.

                                        I would like to be able to look at only a certain section of data at a time, instead of having to zoom in and out to try to look at certain data spots. This would be really convenient for looking at stranger anomalies in the data.
