Hopefully this is the right place for this question. Apologies if not.
Would anyone be interested in trying a Garmin app for Hubitat?
I've been developing one that that uses the Maker API to access and control your hub. It's beta at the moment, but I use it all the time on a Forerunner 965 and have tested on a Forerunner 55.
Groups devices by room
Ability to select favourite devices
Shows status info for each device (on/off, present, battery, temperature)
Shows events for each device
Allows control of devices (typical things like on/off, brightness, temperature, open/close)
Glance widget for Mode and HSM (if supported by the watch)
If there's interest in this then I'll look at making it available through the Garmin Connect IQ store.
(I have to share it via the store, rather than provide it for side loading, as you need to set the app settings via Garmin Connect for your hub URL and Maker API access token).
At the moment it's just called Hubitat, but I might need to invent a more imaginative name.
That is very interesting timing for your post! I was just out for a run yesterday and was trying to think of ways I can disable automations for arriving and departing while I run since my neighborhood is a circle and I come and go multiple times during a run. Being able to add a connect IQ app to toggle a virtual switch on and off from my 965 would be awesome. I know I could do it before I leave or from the phone but this would be a lot more convenient.
The hope would be I remember to click it just before the run and again after the run so I am ok with having to be out of the activity. I do wonder if that would still be the case if it was tied to a shortcut button like for instance the music player app. If I hold down one of the buttons during the run it opens the music app/screen. That one might work since it is a built in one vs ConnectIQ though so not sure.
I have tasker set up so that when I connect to my bike computer, it sends a maker API call to turn on a virtual switch that disables my arrival/departure actions for this same reason. I have a route that goes north about 20 miles, but loops back beyond my house at the end. So, the switch disables my routines, but allows my wife's to work.
Fair point. I think my one could be easier to set up. You just need the maker URL and token and it will pull in all your devices in their rooms. If you add or remove a device later it will be picked up automatically.
Can you select, or limit the list at all?
Any interest in adding to devices other than watch? I have a 1030 Plus and a Fenix 7X. I can see it being more useful to me on my 1030 Plus (bigger display, touch screen, and in a fixed location)
Currently it will pull in all the devices that have been selected in the Maker API app, so you can limit it that way.
In future I could add something to filter in the app, but in the meantime you can still select any device and make it a Favourite for easier access.
I haven't tried it on a bike comp yet. I have a 530 so will give that a go and test the 1030 in the simulator.
