  1. 2 factor Authentication and Skylark

    Hi, yesterday I setup 2 factor authentication in the Nest app. Now I find that every time I leave the house and right after the Skylark app notifies me that I'm away I receive several messages from Google with a authentication code. Have you checked if this is due to Skylark and the support for the new 2 factor authentication from Nest?

    Hi there!

    I wanted to give you guys a quick heads-up that we’ve just added support for Nest’s 2-Factor Authentication to Skylark. The update (v3.3) is currently rolling out to all users, but in the meantime, check out the details in the latest post on the Skylark Blog:

    http://www.skylarkios.com/blog/2017/8/16/skylark-now-supports-nest-2-factor-authentication

    Thanks very much for supporting Skylark, and for participating in here in the forums, it means a lot that you guys take the time to help make Skylark better! As always, I’m happy to answer questions — hit us up at help@skylarkios.com anytime.

    My best wishes,

    Jason
    Owner @ Skylark

  2. Integration With Hue

    The option for turning on/off lights based on two different devices being home would be great for Hue lights. Any plans for this integration?

  3. Status change log

    Please add a log which shows each time Skylark changes the status of the nest thermostat. It sends notification to the phone but I have multiple phones and it appears only the phone that changes the status gets the notification.

  4. Arriving home larger radius then leaving home

    I would like to set the radius for when I'm arriving to much larger then when I'm leaving. The rationale behind this is if I'm 20 minutes away from home I want it to start warming up. But it can go away as soon as I leave the house.

  5. Connect to other works with nest items

    A lot of items now work with nest such as the scout alarm. It would be great if this app could also set and unset the scout alarm at the same time as the nest is set to home and away

  6. Radius Size

    The smallest size is too big. After leaving my "Leaving Zone" I have to pass through it to get anywhere. So the app thinks I left then immediately thinks I returned.

    Radius sizes are already adjustable, so you’re in luck. Just drag the radius with your finger to resize it. We’re planning on making this feature more clear in future releases. We’ll admit it’s not always obvious!

  8. Variable geofencing: leaving vs returning

    Variable controls for geofence, so that leaving triggers within 1/4 mile, but return triggers further away -adjustable - so that house is warm on return

  9. Guest Mode

    For instances when all registered devices are out of the house but someone else is, such as when a guest is staying at your house, there could be a button that you toggle to Guest Mode. This would prevent Nest from setting to Away with an unregistered user in your house. Guest Mode could have predetermined shut off periods or reminders to prevent you from inadvertently leaving Guest Mode on longer than intended.

    The suggested alternative requires you to leave the house, presumably by car, and then pull your phone out while driving when you get the notification that Nest…

  10. Widen the mileage.

    Widen the area to more than 25 miles. I have mine in my home up north. Would be nice if I could set it to 100 miles.

  12. Away/Home Triggering Option

    To set Skylark to only control disable or enable auto away leaving the Nest Thermostat to handle the uncontrolled behavior as normal. For instance, I have children at home with a baby sitter and don't want the geofence to set the thermostat to "away" when I leave (and always interacting with the notification is annoying). However, I do want Skylark to ALWAYS disable "away" when I arrive home. It would seem a simple option to allow the app to only control ending or setting "away" or both.

  13. Allow naming of individual devices with current device noted

    Allow renaming of devices within the skylark app instead of solely relying on the device's name. So no 3 items named iPhone situations. Also would help ID phones when upgrading/removing old devices. A blue dot or similar next to the current device you're on would also help in this regard.

  14. Support for Two Nests

    Would love support for houses with two Nests (controlling two different Heat/AC units).

    Ideal would be this with multi-phone support, so that anyone in household with app that comes close to house, the app would turn on BOTH Nests to heat/cool house before we arrive.

  15. Disable button

    On weekends, my whole family is usually together. During the week, there's almost always someone at home. It would be nice to have a button that would enable/disable skylark right on the home screen.

  16. Add retries

    Occasionally, I will get a "could not set status" error message. I'm not sure why this happens, but when it does it creates a serious flaw: Sklark incorrectly assumes a device is home when it isn't (or vice versa). The user then needs to manually launch the app to refresh status. It would be useful if Skylark implemented retries when errors occur, so that no manual intervention is required to fix the problem.

  17. Make the radius of "not away" configurable.

    Our house takes a long time to warm up so it would be great to turn up the heat when we're, say, 10 miles away. Thanks!

  18. Detailed logging option

    A way of switching on and viewing detailed logs to help diagnose home/away switching issues.

    I know this information can be accessed by Support, but being able to access it from the App would be really useful in checking/determining issues without having to contact support.

    We’ve added a status bar to the bottom of the main screen that shows when Skylark last detected you arriving home or leaving. It isn’t an extensive log, but we think it will get the job done and be much more user friendly. Let us know how it works for you.

  19. Add a free version with a limited number of "away" changes. So that users can see the app in action before purchase.

  20. Support more than one iPhone/iPad device per Nest.

    Skylark currently sets the Nest to away or home based on the location of a single iPhone or iPad. Improve Skylark so that it can be installed on multiple devices, setting the Nest to home once anyone comes home, and setting it to away only once everyone has left.
