InControl supports two types of push notifications. Widget pushes and classic push notifications.
Widget pushes are used to update home screen widgets on your Android device. When you add a widget to your home screen, it will display the current known value of the device. It'll update the widget via push notifications. Using a widget with a frequently changing device -- like motion sensors in very populated areas of your home -- may impact battery life on your phone.
To set this feature up, you must also double click the device inside your InControl server and enable "Push updates."
A class push notification is a notification that will show up in your device's notification center with information you customize. These types of notifications are only sent via scene activations. For details, visit Scene Notification Setup.
