I would like to see a means of importing custom icons/graphics into InControl HA. This way a fireplace could look like a fireplace not a light bulb, a fan could look like a fan rather than an outlet etc. This would minimize confusion when using the software.
We’ll plan on adding this so that each device can have a custom icon to represent it. That icon will be sent to mobile devices and available there also.
Please try this December release candidate. Let us know how it works.
Any update on the custom icon resetting to default on GUI exit/rentry?
@dan It requires Windows 7 or higher, so be sure you aren't on Windows XP. You might also try to use a smaller image. If you continue to have problems, please send us a support ticket to provide some person attention on the matter.
I can now set a custom icon & it changes instantly in the server gui. Close out the gui & reenter and the icon is back to default. Any icon i change resets.
Possiblity to choose icon for Rooms
Agree, we do commercial energy control work and use graphics everyday to let the "lay" people see what they want to see, they do not need code they need graphics! In fact we may have some graphics like was suggested and would ne happy to supply them if they can be integrated!
Also there will be many such "standard" graphic images available on line!
I would even be fine with being able to choose from a group of default icons existing in the system. Either way, being able to distinguish between a light switch and a relay or a fireplace or a fan would allow for a quick glance at the screen to know what device you are about to interact with.
