I would like to request the following functionality (this applies probably mainly to the Fibaro Cloud, but should manifest itself mainly in a mobile app). The problem: AFAIK there is no way to be notified if the HC/HC2 is no longer available in the internet. And this is very important, because this can mean a number of bad things: 1. The power is down 2. The internet connection is lost 3. There is a burglary and someone disabled the system 4. Many more... The solution: Fibaro Cloud servers should be able to provide (probably upon request) a simple monitoring functionality of the HC/HC2 centrals (simple "is alive?" call, probably invoked by the HC/HC2). If the "is alives" are repeatedly not received (some simple rules decreasing the rate of false notifications couldapply), the user (administrator?) should get a push notification and optionally an email. Thanks in advance!
The problem: Some of the functions in Fibaro may get pretty security-sensitive, especially around locks and security systems. However, the security of the Fibaro App is not very convincing! 1. The app does not allow requesting any type of authorization when connecting to the system. 2. Some (if not all) sensitive functionalities (like a secure lock) cannot be additionally protected by the app. The solution: I would be very happy to see the following options (I stress: options, not user requirements, as many users do not need any security at all!): 1. Starting the app (= connecting to HC/HC2) should have an option to request a fingerprint authorization or a PIN. The fingerprints seem to be already implemented in the app, and they are very useful and fast, so why not use them? 2. The user (or maybe even the administrator) should be able to set additional authorization (again: fingerprint or PIN) on any chosen functions. The most important ones are the secure devices, but it probably also applies to scenes and maybe any device in general. Thanks in advance!
