          • Integration with VeraPlus zwave hub!

            Would love there to be a setup guide for sending data from VeraPlus zwave hub sensors to InitialState or a bonafide Vera plugin.

                        • "Show Events Since" based on submitted epoch rather than date sent to IS

                          Currently, in Advanced Settings, the "Show Events Since" is based on the date/time the data point is uploaded to IS, not based on the time/date stamp sent with the datapoint. This matters when the datapoint is sent at a later time than the datapoint was created. It would be helpful to see events since a time aligned with the uploaded epoch field.

                          • Summary tile bottom info

                            The summary tiles automatically include a "Since xxx " time stamp at the bottom. This may not always apply. So I would like to see an option to edit that tag and/or enable/disable in the configuration.

                            • Tile Zoom

                              Allow tiles to be resized on the fly. This would apply to a URL share. Allow users to click and drag to re-position tiles or change size; and get full screen with a double click. The re formatting would apply only to that user instance, not affecting any other viewer. It would allow users to get a more detailed view of areas of interest.

                              • Allow the min/max for line and gauge tiles to be set by data points

                                We do a lot of target vs actual type displays where we want to compare two numbers - not as a percent but as the raw values. This would work well in the gauge tile for example if we could use the target as the max and the actual as the value.

                                    Say I'm sending Voltage and Current to be displayed and I would also like to display power. The option to display

                                    Power = V * I

                                    is now available - Thanks! Taking that a step further, say for AC power if I also know the phase angle (phi) between V and I then I could calculate and display real power thus:

                                    Real Power = V * I * cos(phi)

                                      • zoom / scroll historical data while using "show events since"

                                        Hi InitialState

                                        When using the time limit function "Show event since" (- which is very nice!!), it would be good to be able to manually zoome - or scroll back into historical data - older then the time limit in the "default view" for the data set.
                                        The default view is what I want to see on a daily basis - on a normal day. When something happens, and I get some kind of extraordinary data - I want to look at previous data to see what leed up to the event.

                                        Hope it makes sense - otherwise please do…

                                        • Support for devices behind a HTTP/HTTPS proxy

                                          For devices that are behind HTTP/HTTPS proxies, there is no ability for me to send data up. We have several datacenters that we would like to be able to create IoT sensors for, but in testing I have been unable to get data up to the cloud due to all network traffic having to go through corporate proxy servers. Exporting http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables was unsuccessful - help is appreciated!
