I rely on using backup to Dropbox to keep multiple configurations and switch between them for testing. Especially when “two steps forward, one step back” experimenting with configuration and control of finicky devices.
I installed a Simple Hub and the only iPad that was running got itself into a “shared” status instead of just a “paired” status.
The “paired” status does not allow backing up to Dropbox and the Simple Service backup doesn’t save multiple versions.
Enhancement request #1: Allow “shared” status paired devices to backup to Dropbox.
This is also valuable when using Multi-home remote access to manage another installation. Again, need to be able to do multiple backup/restores for remote configuration changes and troubleshooting. If needed, add an extra level of authentication or setting “allow remote admins to backup/restore” or similar, if needed for security restrictions.
Enhancement request #2: Allow backups/restores via Simple Service to support multiple configurations with date/time stamp. Restore should default to the last saved configuration, but provide option to override and manually select a specific configuration.
