Devices that are On! Plugin

What is Devices that Are On!?Well, I was going through the usual feeds this morning… And noticed this:

This sounds like a use for Smart Folders (devices filtered by state), but I’d really like to be able to see a page on Indigo Remote that show only lights that are on. I’ve got 70-something light controllers, and I’d like Indigo to do the work of finding the ones that are on, rather than me scrolling a long list. Is this possible now?

Well, it wasn’t as of a few hours ago. But a quick modification to the Indigo Remote Device Listing plugin, and a few tests here, and there, and we have the “Devices that are On!” plugin. It will list all the devices that are currently on, and has a hyperlink on the name. If you click on that hyperlink Indigo will turn the device off, and then show you a brief status on the device.
