Device value info on the devices list?

Tagging @mike.maxwell

just an idea: is it possible to add the present value of the device when you see the devices list ?

It could be a practical info to see directly if the values are in our "mind" range (aka as expected) when reviewing them.

Then issue becomes one of which value to display.

The right one, obviously. :thinking:

EDIT: I was joking, in case that wasn't clear. I agree with @JasonJoel's post below mine.

None of them. Make the list load faster, not slower. :slight_smile:

On a non-smart arse note, it would be kind of interesting if there were a way to see a summary of all current values somewhere. Not the main devices list, but somewhere.


yes of course. but for temperature, switches, contacts, the most obvious could be displayed. And a click of the device itself will display all the parameters, if needed. Just to see a entire panel in a quick.

But what @JasonJoel said, a full summary somewhere could be useful too, like a super dashboard (just a simple html page that can be printed, no need to have fancy things)

You can kind of do it today in maker api (can do a devices/all and get every attribute and value on every device in Maker API with one command as a huge old json response). It is slow (sometimes 30+ seconds), but if it were a dedicated page that displayed results like that (without having to configure Maker API) in a readable format it may be useful.

But for example I have a contact that also detects temperature... so which one to show? This would require something like ST had where you declare a β€œmain” tile. But nothing like that exists today.
