So I’ve been using a Google WearOS smartwatch for quite some time. But as a big fan of my Homey I was missing the ability to use Homey connected devices via my smartwatch. So because the current Homey App does not provide its own WearOS functionality, I’ve created my own.
So I just want to let you guys know, that if you have a Google WearOS device, you can now use it to control your Homey.
Because how smartwatches are implemented the functionality of the app is quite limited. Basically you can only turn your devices on/off, play/pause or if its a button press. The devices lists only your favorite selected devices.
When you open the app for the first time, it notifies you that you have the login once via your mobile phone to your Athom Homey account. Once you do this, it gets your favorite devices and lists them on your WearOS device. Simply clicking on the devices switches its status, so play becomes pauze, on becomes off, etc.
Please note that it might take a couple of seconds for the app to get the latest status of your devices
Besides controlling your favorite devices, I’m also looking into starting your favorite flows from your smartwatch. I’m hoping to add this functionality in the next couple of weeks.
Feedback is offcourse very much appreciate it. So if you have any feature requests please mention them on the Github page, so I can keep track of them.
