Well, all the rest of my device or smart app alerts show up there. It’s not really the SHM per se but it is the logging portion. In the ST app this used to be called “Hello, Home”.
Maybe a different approach is: I want to get push alerts in the ST app about what Rachio is doing. These will be logged there along with the rest.
Using separate apps falls flat - think single pane of glass. Plus I actually rarely use the Rachio app and instead opt for the web interface. Plus when I had the Rachio app it seemed very chatty and only has coarse on or off settings.
If Rachio doesn’t have some way to do this it would be disappointing since it is such a very basic thing. Honeywell does it, Arlo does it, Philips does it so other than simply not trying I can’t think of any reason why the Rachio Smartapp doesn’t. It also begs the question as to why there even is a ST integration because “turning on the sprinklers when the neighbor’s dog comes into the yard” is so an edge case. Getting an alert that you have a failure or whatnot is a central use case.
I was hoping that better coverage might exist, say, in some official support for the Rachio 3 in ST. Anyone have any idea if that is in the works or what it might offer?
I guess worst case, assuming the status is returned to ST but simply not exposed, I can take the time to write a Smartapp that collects the status and simply rebroadcasts it as a push. But I have not investigated to see if what status is actually coming back to ST.
