  1. Easier Lines Tracking of Real Time Data

    I want to bring up the Lines data and just let it fill in, currently the cursors get in the way or new ones get created when I click, and the screen doesn't always auto-fill with new data if cursors are defined. I'd just like a plain screen with no cursors on it that continually adds new data as it comes in.

    • Free Trial, batching and Features

      I started the free trial and integrated with Smart Things. I only connected 3 things. Unfortunately before I got a good chance to play with initial state I exceeded the free trial limits. I understand the integration has batching but perhaps it is not batching enough if only 3 items exceeds limits in a short period of time. I might buy one month of the paid plan to try it out more.

      My main goal is understanding my electricity as it relates to changes I make in my home to try to save energy. It would be nice to see…

      • 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.

          • Data Snipping

            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.

                • A generic tile for title or notes

                  I'd like a generic title or notes tile.

                  Combining a couple feature requests, I could have a Title at the top of a tile set. The tiles underneath it are small, sparkline like, where one is a line graph and one is a histogram. These two tiles are small, minimalist, and grouped with the Title tile. Makes for a clean look and lots of at a glance info.

                  • Colour maps

                    I like the Map facility but can'y help but feel that colour maps would look better than monochrome. Maybe there could be an option for colour?

                    • Line Graph tile - remove min/max

                      I don't have a need for min/max in the Line graph. I also don't care for the up/down arrove. I like the value displayed and the graph. I'd like to request a way to include or exclude what is shown in each tile.

                            • Sort "Source" in chronological order

                              The "Source" view should be sorted in chronological order.
                              For a list of 1 through n rows, it appears to be adding new rows at the top (at 1) most of the time, but when I have the InitialState app open, it adds new rows at the bottom (at n). The end result is that the chronological sort is broken.

                                    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.

                                      • Connect to BMS controllers under Modbus and Bacnet

                                        I can see this how this product could become universally used in HVAC system. But it must be able to talk the language. Modbus is an easy protocol, and used in anything industrial, bacnet is one of the mostly used in HVAC.
