One of the main functions that drive most people to Z-wave is specific notifications. All of the services that are being deployed focus on key selling points, and one of these is "user" specific notifications. Child #1 is home, Child #2 is home, and so on.
I would say in the lock code set location, an entry be added for a "text" name. When this event is sent to InControl, the name variable can be pulled into the alert.5 votes

Virtual devices are reset to off after a system reboot.
It would be good if they would retain their status afterward.
As an example: If your power goes off while you are on vacation causing a system reboot, you might have a problem if a virtual device named "Vacation Mode" is cleared as a result.5 votes

Similar to how the Aeon Labs Key Fob can do this now. Add this ability to the MiniMote.5 votes
This is available in the release version 3.113. Please auto-configure the device then use the “Remote control button” assignment in the scene you’d like to control.
This will be available after version 3.55
Occasional issues with the state of a device would be fixed with a refresh button within the incontrol android app itself. Rather than compelete4 votes
This will be completed in the next release of the Android app.
I have ZStick series 2 with updated firmware in conjunction with most recent version of Incontrol. It is possible to have a non-functioning device in Incontrol that is impossible to delete without doing a complete stick reset. I have seen two causes for this. One night I noticed my front porch light was not turning on. I thought I may need to reset incontrol but that didn't make a difference. I could control all my other devices, but just not this one. I then took my ZStick, put it into add mode, then tried to add the switch back and it wouldn't take it. I then put the ZStick into delete mode, and I could then delete it and re-add it. So once I have my Incontrol updated, I now have 2 switches. One is a standardswitch which is my current front porch, and the other is my old "Front Porch" switch. So I delete my "Front Porch" from Incontrol and rename the other switch. At this point everything works again. I have to re-add the new "Front Porch" to my scenes. The problem is that when a netowrk update is recieved or a heal occurs another standard switch appears that is a ghost. It doesn't opperate anything or is real in any way, if I delete it, it will just come back. Zombie switch may have been a better description because they just don't die. In conjunction with another bug I posted, if I send a turn on command to the zombie switch, Incontrol will tell me that the zombie switch is on when it doesn't even exist. I don't know if this issues is in Incontrol or the Zstick. It has persisted over several updates for ZStick and Incontrol both. I have had this setup for 1.5 years and to this day I have this issue. My guess is having a way to delete a device out of the ZStick without that device being present may be the best approach. I have also had this issue when trying to add new devices to the network. Thanks!

This would be a way to send email without having to use a script. It could have subject/body variables, and possibly even to/from settings, and support substitution text.4 votes

When I set up a scene I would like to set a % value on the dimmer switches. As I see it now I can view on my phone app the % that the dimmer is set to and keep tapping the slider in my scene set up until it's that percent.4 votes
This has been completed. You can also directly enter the % in the text box.

Requires latest version of InControl HA (4.0) found at www.incontrolha.com
Have the ability to play a audio file via Sonos when a scene is activated. I know there are ways to do something similar with computer speakers and phones, but this would be so much simpler and versatile.
- Sonos, near the house entry, playing a greeting when you enter.
- Sonos in the bedroom playing alerts when things happen around the house. (garage door opening, young child's door opening, etc)
- Play dogs barking when sensors are triggered while your away(This is from a competing HA system)3 votes
This has been added and is ready as a beta. You’ll need InControl HA version 3.152 as well as the Sonos Controller installer. Both are linked below.
Aeon Labs Smart strips and outlet modules can provide power metering information, kWh and Watts. When viewing device details in the UI sometimes those two table entries exist, other times one or the other will disappear. Between times of correct display and incorrect display nothing else happens - no scenes have been triggered, no devices have been manually actuated, nothing. One moment the values are there, minutes or even an hour later, the table only shows Battery, no Electric, no Instant Watts. Then, an hour or so later one or both my suddenly reappear.2 votes
It would be very nice if for example the android app starts by showing scenes instead of the powered on devices2 votes

I have several scenes that are fairly complex and their purpose has evolved over time. I cannot easily rename these scenes, I would have to create a new one and start from scratch.2 votes
Hi Luke – you can already rename a scene. Here’s some info: http://docs.incontrolha.com/home/scenes
When you activate a scene from the scene list, a visual confirmation would be nice. Currently, the buttons don't indicate that they've been pressed (like the other device buttons etc do).2 votes
This will be completed in the upcoming store release.
When adding a dim level for a device in a scene, there's a slider control but no numeric indicator like there is on the device icon list 0-99. This would be good as it's always a little hit and miss when you're trying to get lighting levels just right.2 votes

When console is updated, the new install looks for all purchased plugins and automatically installs them instead of manually.
Everytime InControl console is updated I have to repair or reinstall my multi user plugin. Would love for this to be done automatically.2 votes
