Homey Community

Different access for different users


Hi There,

An option that could be useful would be to be able to give access to the Homey on certain time of the day and certain day to different users.
An example: I would like my cleaning lady to be able to open my house front door only on the day she is cleaning my home. I would be able to decide on which day and timeframe she can use the app to open my house light the rooms, etc.


And the question is for?? if is it a direct question for Athom then you should read the welcome post here on the forum.
Wich i believe you already should have read.

Ofcourse you can do something with presence detection and home states.


Good idea, I had already posted a request on support.athom.com for something comparable:
In the v2 app you will also be able to change flows.

I requested authorisation levels for users so I will be able to deny my kids access to the “flows” tab.
Dont want them to mess up my flows.

But it would be even more fancy if we could control access per zone.
So you could give acces to the cleaning lady to certain controls. (Timing you suggested could also be captured by the “and” column in the flows. )
I already have a virtual device “cleaning” that changes the way the flows behave when that is on.
You could use it to limit the flows to give access…


This same question was one of my first posts. User rights, per device authorization

I don know if there is feature request on which we can give +1 or like similar requests are handled. If yes we definitely should create new feature request and give it our +1.


Hi David, I have asked Homey support team about it and they told me that this functionality will be available soon. However I have no clue what soon means and if they actually gonna do it.

Would love to give you my +1 so the developer get cracking on it.


I am also looking forward to this feature.

Would be an awesome addition!
