Homey 2.0.0 Experimental discussion [EN]




For those who are also worried about Homey’s functionality when your internet connection drops: @Dijker tested this and the results are good so far :slight_smile:

Thanks @Dijker


What I miss in both the old and new UI is actual sensor values in the user interface, for instance showing on/off state of a power outlet, the temperature of a temperature sensor and so on. Gives a much better overview than having to click on each and every one of the sensors.

Any reason why it is that way? I can´t remember any other HA-software that kind of static presentation.

(I´m not using 2.0 myself, since I don´t want to risk having to re-include all devices, but it seems to behave the same way when looking at videos of it)


I agree, stupid you always have to select it to see its state/temp/…


They are probably trying to minimize CPU load?


The setting anything on the main view thingy as value, is on the todo list of athom to add this, see this issue that was created for it: https://github.com/athombv/homey-apps-sdk-issues/issues/17


That never seemed to be a problem in 1.5.


This is something that a dashboard would change.
Unfortunately there is none at the moment but there’s a discussion ongoing if there might be another app such as eg ImperiHome or something else to use it as a dashboard.

No dashboard = no real usability.


Homey won’t update to rc9 only gets message that something got wrong.
tried to reboot but it doesn’t help.
Some Ideas please


Reboot Homey and start the update during the time that the Apps are still loading. That worked for me.


Thanks i’ll try that

Anyone using the Youless screensaver? Doesn’t seem to be working anymore on 2.0…


ZIgbee Removal

I’m having issues removing a basic zigbee device, its just stuck there and brings up errors. and i cant re add it as it thinks its a duplicate.
I dont want to do a zigbee network reset AGAIN, then have to re-add all the devices.

Ive logged a ticket anyway


I think all the screensavers got nuked in the last update


Yeah, i Hope @OpenMind_NL will update his LED-Collection. I Love the „eyes“ and „Scanner“ modes for homey.


I also had this problem. I removed all “cards” from the flow and then I could remove the flow and recreate it.


I only tried ‘Youless Energie’ and because that one didn’t work I tried the one above it ‘Ogen - Magenta & Blauw’.
That one did work so I thought it was only Youless that wasn’t working.
Turns out it’s really very random which ones do and don’t work… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


Question: does v2 firmware have a function to enable/disable all flows in a folder, similar to the Candy App:



Does anyone know how many apps we can install (reliably) ?
is it still 15 or can we have more?


Try and error i would say, there are people with the dubbel amount and no problems at all.

I think its not about the amount of apps that are installed only, its much more how your flows ar setup, wich mean that flows are logic and not running when not needed.

Simple example: if switch is turn on, then light on. Should be if switch is turn on, AND light is off, then light on.


I’m not sure that example is good. The trigger “light switched on” would only fire when the light changes from off to on so the condition is redundant and requires more processing.
But your correct that how you implement flows can affect responsiveness.
Also some apps use more processing power than others so it depends on what you use.
