  1. Wifi Trigger

    Update Nest to Away and Home based off of whether or not your phone is connected to the Wifi you Setup in settings. If phone is connected to home Wifi, then set to home. If phone is not connected to Wifi, then set to Away.

    • Wink and other hub integrations.

      The use of skylark is great for everyone that has phones. But if you don't have a phone like kids or babysitters. If there was integration with hubs could use motion or certain lights that are on as an additional means of detecting.

        • Multiple user on one thermostat

          How do I setup multiple users on a single thermostat. Where if either party is home the best will stay in home mode yet if both parties are gone it will switch to away mode?

            • A choice to turn on/off chirping bird.

              I just installed Skylark and my Nest this past week. It recognizes when I leave home and that another registered phone is in the house. Receiving the notices is great but how can I silence the chirping bird sound when the notice come in. I don’t want to silence all sounds but I haven’t found a choice in the Skylark App to do that. There is only receive notifications or not. I like the chirping bird but there might be instances where I need the app to be quiet.

              • App for Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE

                Love my new Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE. I think it would be nice if Skylark supported the Apple Watch in a way that I could leave my iPhone at home and still put Nest into Away mode when I am out and about.

                  • Monthly subscription option

                    Hi folks, Jason here (I'm the owner of Skylark). I'm curious how the community feels about having the option to pay a low monthly fee to use Skylark, instead of a single, one-time fee?

                    While the total cost to you would be higher, the recurring income generated would help fund additional device integrations, new features, and improvements to the app.

                    Please chime in with your thoughts, I'm listening!

                    ~Jason

                    • Notification only when error occurs, notification usability tweaks

                      A setting to hide all the mundane "going to home mode", "going to away mode" notifications is desired; the remaining notifications should only occur when an error occurs i.e. - some registered devices haven't reported geolocation so keeping thermostat in home mode. Cause of unknown device geolocation often is due to login credentials being lost after an app update, or physical device having been swapped out for another (AppleCare replacement) and Skylark not being installed/credentialed/configured/newdeviceregistered/olddevicedeleted with Skylark service.

                      Also, when ALL device geolocation informations aren't known, the notification should be changed from "~thermostat staying in home mode since a device…

                        • Nest Sense with Skylark

                          Is it possible to have Nest Sense on (auto away/home) next to using Skylark?
                          My wife and i leave house everyday for work but we have 3 different babysitters every week that are at our house, so more often then not the Nest needs to be set to home even if our Skylark devices are away

                          • Ability to set Nest to Heat/Eco/Off with Away/Home

                            The nest Thermostat will heat your home for 30 minutes of a pre defined schedule before checking if it is set to away. If the Nest Thermostst is set to ECO then this does not happen.

                            If you use the Nest Thermostat set to Eco when away this does not stop the nest heating for 30 minutes before checking

                            • Use Airbnb calendar to activate guest mode

                              This might be a bit of an edge case, but the issue I was trying to solve when I found Skylark was when our whole family is away from the house for a time because we're renting our house on Airbnb.

                              I don't see that Airbnb has a IFTTT channel - so it may require using their API - I just don't want to forget when I have someone coming and have them arrive to a hot or cold house: http://airbnbapi.org/#get-calendar-info

                              For now I can just leverage the undo swipe - that's nice thinking. Thanks for putting this together.

                                • Different strokes for different folks

                                  I don't know if it's technically feasible but if you could have different temperatures for different people that would be amazing. For instance, the main account holder and home owner prefers it at 72. While they're home this is the preferred temperature. However, they leave and their spouse or children prefer it at 68. Well then based off of a preset hierarchy you can change the temperature to that persons liking. Sucks if you're on the bottom end of that totem pole. But hey, that's life.

                                      Just realized my wife deleted the app on her phone so our status was stuck on home for I don't know how long. Be nice to get a notification if the home status hasn't changed a while.
