[DONE] Recent History / Activity

One of the feature I find myself keep going back to HD+ for is the ability to bring up a devices Activity/History.

Would be awesome to have a Action added that is able to view the Activity/History that we could assign to one of the Tile Actions [‘Tap’, ‘Dbl Tap’, ‘Hold’]

Where do you think this activity is being kept?

I suspect it is fairly inaccurate - because if there is any time that the HD+ app isn’t running, it would be blind to any past events.

Do you know if this limitation is known / discussed?? And if true, is it really valid or worth having?

I’d actually point you to the HE hub as being the best place to review event history - and unfortunately I don’t believe this is made available externally

Its definitely getting it from the HE Hub itself. I just closed the app and put my phone into airplane mode. Then went and turned a light on/off, removed my phone from airplane mode and was able to see the on/off activation in the activity log in HD+

Just had a look at Maker API and the event history for a device is accessible using the following:

Get Device Event History (replace [Device ID] with actual subscribed device id
http://10.x.x.x/apps/api/102/devices/[Device ID]/events?access_token=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

That’s correct. Maker dishes it out, just needs formating on the HV side.

Well there you go. I must admit I didn’t realise there was that event history pushed out by MakerAPI.

You learn something new every day :stuck_out_tongue:

Vote for it and it will happen.

It’s all right there on the Docs page for Maker API:

What do you use it for? Why do you want to know a devices history?


I know some use History to see how often a particular motion detector or alarm system tripped, but I find it helpful to diagnose whether a particular trigger or command is being processed on devices that otherwise have no outward response (e.g. TV volume, which fires an RM rule; or virtual switch; or hub variable values set by another rule, etc.).
