We have an existing UI. And we have two ways of implementing the UI. Both are fairly similar, in that they present multiple scenario buttons grouped by areas of interest.
Thinking about this, rethinking about stuff users said in the past, and how *I* myself am using the system made me realize that a different paradigm might be more appropriate.
Do we really need all those canned buttons/scenarios?
On one side, it is great to have a consistent view, i.e. no matter what Orbiter people use in my home, they always have the same look and feel, find stuff easily, once they learned the Orbiter.
On the other side, there are times, when I think, wouldn't it be great to just have a couple of scenario buttons on the main page, tailored for the individual user. With the user having the ability to turn on/off stuff based on what s/he wants to see on the main page on this particular Orbiter, or for all his/her orbiters.
In our home, we do not use climate at all. And even when we start using it, I can't find a reason to have it available on the home page. On the other hand, it would be great to have more lighting scenario buttons available to the front page, and maybe more media scenarios. Others might respond, that they do not need any media scenarios, but only want lights and climate, so I think it would be wise to give the user the choice, what to display on the main menu. And by choice, I do not mean the ability to utilize HA Designer to redesign the starting page.
