A long time ago, I used Homebuddy for Vera. They had widgets that you could configure to execute specific scenes or tasks, and I could put the most commonly used stuff on its own desktop on my android device, and not have to wait for the app to load and navigate to what I wanted to do.
Most of it was for arming and disarming the alarm, controlling garage doors, and operating locks.
Can we eventually get this functionality for the app? It was super convenient.
