Are there any plans to create an Apple Watch app for the Particle iOS app?
The iOS Particle app is absolutely fantastic – other than being a great data/feed source, it is an incredible remote for variables + remote function calling. The fact that you can access all of your photons in one place makes it even better for DIY/hobbyist.
It essentially brings a single app that you can use to control anything physical.
Having access to all of this from your wrist would simply be amazing. It would essentially create the best “IOT” remote. Everything from notifications (sensors, motion, door, water leaks, alerts, etc) to an actual control (garage door, lights, etc).
I have tried doing this with IFTTT, but the delay is much to large for it to be useful. Currently, you can mimic the real time functionality with an SMS gateway (flowroute for SMS + a photon) which seems to deliver in real time, but you have to write a php handler and “enough” for security/handling to react- doable and it works well, but it seems like an overkill.
The watch just seems like a perfect solution for all of this.
