Fibaro web UI and other missing feature

Neo Andersson

Recommended Posts

I would like to ask Fibaro, to improve  or solve functionality of features below / there are a lot more other ofcourse


1.  I am begging FIBARO, please for god sake, make the browser's side rolling bar wider and more visible. Please Please..It is hard to even see it.

2. Searching for a device using the text search box is buggy. Driving people crazy. If you enter a QA editor, and jump out of it, the view is reset, and you need to search for that QA again. However, when you type its name again, the textbox resets itself, so you need to enter again the QA's name and hit enter.

3. Please add posibility for text searchbar to react for device IDs, not only names

4. Please just get finally rid of accepting slider or switch controls values as string. This makes no sense, and makes coding even harder

5. Please, provide irrigation access from mobile phones. Who on earth would like to access irrigation only by opening PC and adjusting stuff in there.

6. The new switch and dropdown control is a nice start / if they will work one day without bugs / but please keep on improving on QA interface controls. Please give people more freedom. Let the QAs use more CSS or HTML elements. Please, this is a mutual goal, not only ours. We can provide way better QAs for users.

7. Please, let the QAs quickappVariables be enumerated as global variables. Customers can easily select from options, and this avoids bugs a lot.

8. Please condiser to introduce more ZWAVE, ZIGBEE devices. 

9. I bet, all other active members,friends from this forum, like @Sjakie , @Fabir, @Sancotronic, or @Joep and many others would agree with me. Even fibaro members like @m.roszak would share these opinions. I bet they all have their own suggestions, so i encourage them to complete  this list for their likes. And please set up a statue for @jgab on main streets of Stockholm for doing such a job for free, just to help us provide better service and so we can help Fibaro staying alive.

10.Please allow us to do updates online. I have never ever met any of my customer, who wanted to do upgrades byhimself. We have to travel all the time to their places. None of them has external IP, or VPN allowed, so it is a nightmare for me to do evenh a single update. I know, there will be some security issues around this, but i think all the people would agree to do it, rather than have us travel to them all the time.

11. Allow heating schedule panel for other users too, not only for admin. This is ridiculous.

12. Show some indication in Zone thermostat, that the zone is actually heating, and what is the measured temeprature there. User needs to click on 3 different pages to get information about a single zone.

13.Merry Christmas for all of you guys.

Let me add some Lua/API stuff that are really missing.

We recently got metatables - hallelujah - now if we only would have coroutines enabled so we could start to make easy to use api's in the asynchronous world we live in...

I'm with you on this suggestions 100% and can add more, but lets not scare them ;-) @Neo Andersson  your 10 points and @jgab  point is good enough for now.

Hope to see some improvements soon.
