I wonder if there is any plans on expanding the functionality of the virtual device in Fibaro HC2.

As it works now it´s most suitable to use for controlling some other device with buttons, slider etc, and if you want to display data from another device all you can use is the label.

 

My wish is that you should be able to choose the type of the virtual device.

For example, if you want it to appear as a thermometer or humidity device, and be able to set the value of this device via http api and lua.

 

This would open up the possibility to add virtual devices that gets updated via for example node-red or http from other sources.

And in the user interface they will show up as a "common" sensor. That would be really nice.

 

I think this functionality would make the platform more attractive for many people, and open up the integration between different protocols and vendors.

 

Is it just me or is anybody else missing this functionality?
