A Watchface developed for the Pebble Smartwatch. Designed to incorporate home automation elements. This project is still in its early days, and has a rich roadmap. It is available on the Pebble App-store. The main design goals were:
Bluetooth & Battery Status
Info Bar with various modes2nd Timezone
This was my first attempt at a watch-face, and has been fairly simple, but also stimulating. The Pebble SDK and documentation are rich, and developing with CloudPebble has been a pleasant experience.
The current location as reported by OpenWeather is show here. This is returned from the current GPS location.
The time is displayed with a Dot based font (I liked it). The time format will follow the format set by the watch. There is no am/pm indicator... I find it to be a bit redundant.
Upon purchasing/donating a Registration Key via the Paypal link below, you can enter your email address and unique key to activate the advanced options for the bottom bar, as also enable the home automation API as described below. Tap on the Validate button to verify registration. The registration details are automatically saved.
To use this functionality the Bottom Bar has to be set to "HA ICONS". This will enable the API.
Currently this functionality consists of FOUR icons.
HOME SECURED - shows a house that is secured (alarm armed, all doors locked etc.)
GARAGE DOOR - shows a garage/gate as open or closed
LIGHTS - shows a light or group of lights on/off
AC - shows if Air-conditioning (heating/cooling) is on/off
The status of these icons are retrieved once per minute, or when watch is "shaken"
The status of these icons can be controlled by utilising your registered email & key and a simple web-service call a explained below
To set the State of the icons execute the following URL with appropriate parameters
email - your registered email address
key - your registered/unique key
device - HOME/GARAGE/LIGHTS/AC
state - 0 or 1
If any of the provided parameters are incorrect you will receive an error.
If everything is set correctly, you will get back a JSON result showing the current status for all four Icons
This can be called from any device that can make calls to URL's, including many home automation devices that support some form of scene control of scripting. It can also be called using the very popular ITTT platform and MAKER channel.

We have chosen to make the Registration optional after some thought. If you want the enhanced functionality please go ahead and make a donation below.
I no longer provide FREE registrations, as the Pebble platform is dying, and the cost of maintaining server infrastucture already exceeds the infrequent donations. I appreciate your understanding in this regard.
The Key that we provide is mainly to use the Home automation API, for security Purposes. This is then used in the watch configuration.
all calls to the HA API need to then include your registered email address and key.
The Registration will also unlock some advanced settings in the configuration app, as mentioned above. The registration process is completely automated,
and you will receive an email to the email adress linked to you Paypal account upon completing the Paypal payment Process.
Please consider a supporting my effort below, if you want the API/enhancements.
