SmartThings iOS Version 1.6.5 + Temperature Calibration
We’ve just released a new version of the SmartThings iOS app that’s available for free download in the iTunes store! In addition, we also recently released a new feature that’s designed to improve the temperature readings for SmartSense Multi sensors.
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s what:
• iOS version 1.6.5 includes several minor UI enhancements and updates to improve the general stability and overall performance of the app
• In addition, we’ve also updated and improved icon pickers to help people customize and identify their different connected devices
We’ve also just released a new feature for both Android and iOS to help improve the quality of the readings on your SmartThings devices that record temperature (the new SmartSense Moisture, SmartSense Open/Closed, and SmartSense Motion sensors; and the SmartSense Multi sensor).
Since some customers have reported that their sensors often record temperatures that are consistently a few degrees off from other thermometers, we’ve enabled a Temperature Calibration feature that allows you to select a consistent offset. As an example, if your Multi consistently reports a temperature that is 4 degrees warmer than nearby thermometers, you’d enter in “-4″ in this field. If it’s 3 degrees colder, you’d enter “3.” This way, your Multi will always report the correct temperature.
No mention if Android users will get this same update.
You can always assume they will.
