Thanks for the outreach. I've reviewed your email exchanges with the support team, as well as the other touch points (forums, mantis, etc.) to try to get a better understanding of your request.
We recognize your desire to see a more granular lens applied to temperature reporting, as that is of particular interest for you, personally. However, for the broader audience, this “bug” is not perceived with the same level of criticality.
We've deliberately chosen to report temperature in whole degrees, based on a variety of criteria (not the least of which is operational and visual simplicity), just as most of our commercial contemporaries (AT&T, Control4, Iris, Nexia, Verizon, XFINITY, etc.) within the space have as well.
Nevertheless, as a European Vera owner (and “power user, no less) this degree of specificity could prove understandably useful, to you.
We've got tens of thousands of systems in use, worldwide, and how we address individual requests such as yours requires being mindful of a very fragile balance.
To quote your recent post in our support forums “Sure, people would have to rewrite their lua code in scenes, but I'm convinced that they would gladly do that if it meant that they would get temperature values that are useful.”
While you may feel this is urgent, other Vera users may feel otherwise.
Please understand that ANY code change that may adversely affect other existing users necessitates due diligence and erring on the side of caution.
I can assure you that many (myself included), if not ALL of our users would be (justifiably) upset if we were forced to rewrite code, to restore previous functionality, so you can have more accurate control (68.0° versus 69.8°) of your outdoor pool.
That said, I will reopen the discussion with the engineering team as part of the UI7 development.
If we can implement a user selectable Celsius/Fahrenheit toggle to enable decimal based reporting, without disrupting the existing ecosystem of plugins and user created scenes, we WILL do so.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and continued support. We appreciate it very much!
