We have added the ability to customize the conditions under which a particular widget is displayed in the mobile app. The new Condition tab in the widget settings modal allows you to select a sensor on which value the display of the widget will depend, as well as configure the value that the sensor state must equal (or not equal) for the condition to be triggered.
It may sound complicated, but it’s actually quite simple. Imagine your device is turned off. In this case, all widgets for managing its functions and monitoring sensors become irrelevant. You can make these widgets appear only when the device is turned on and not visible when it is turned off.
Another example is if some of your widgets are relevant in one device operating mode while others are relevant in another. You can customize the display of such widgets depending on what mode the device is currently operating in. The user will see only relevant widgets at any given time.
We have implemented this feature not only for individual widgets but also for mobile application tabs and individual components of the Grid widget, which is an aggregator for other widgets.
In the platform update dated May 11, 2023, we implemented the ability to add descriptions of IoT device sensors, namely their title, description, and possible values. Now, we have improved this functionality.
Firstly, now 2Smart Cloud vendors can quickly copy previously created sensor descriptions from other products. For example, if the sensor is responsible for the Wi-Fi signal value, it does not matter which device we are talking about. Obviously, you can use the same description of this sensor across all your products.
Secondly, besides plain text, you can now use HTML to format sensor descriptions.
Thirdly, you can now add the description for sensors of each major product version. Imagine that the first version of your device’s firmware did not support a specific sensor at all (for example, the Reset button). However, this support appeared in the second version. Now, you can add a description of this sensor in the “Configure product” window, and it will be actual for the second and later versions of the firmware, but it will not be in the first one.
To edit sensor descriptions for the previous firmware versions, select the desired version in the “Firmwares” section. Then, in the firmware editing window, click the “Add sensor description” button and add the required description or edit the existing one. These updates will be relevant only for this firmware version and will not appear in others.
