    Currently we have to go thru networks and manually open the firewall from the cart to the internal development servers. Providing a secure proxy would allow us (mobile labs admins) to manage the traffic to the internal sites from the wifi network our phones run on.

    We are aware of Appium biometric authentication API's for simulators, but what we would really like is something that would allow us to test the actual biometric code on the phone's OS. We've seen some differences between various versions of Android (Google, Samsung KNOX, etc) and iOS. Actually being able to perform an actual FaceID scan or fingerprint scan would be really cool. Get out the Lego MindStorms and build a robot finger actuator? Or perhaps use a Raspberry PI and finger actuator? You could grab the temp inside the cart at the same time from the PI.

    We like this idea and have developed a python script in the to deal with it for now. We monitor devices going offline and coming back online. We also monitor devices that have battery levels that get low. For the MacMini it would be ideal to have a master ***** configuration where each monitor the cluster status. We have two macmini's that operate like this. However, the USB hubs must be manually switched over to the ***** in a failure of the main macmini. We use TimeMachine to backup the PostGres database to keep configs in sync.

    We’re looking at building out a general alerts and monitoring system; this particular feature will become part of that. Specifically detecting “bloat” may be a little bit tricky because we haven’t found any consistently clear indicators as to when a battery starts to tip over the edge, but just being able to have the cart monitor various metrics more easily will still help.

    We have actually built an application that uses the rest interface to monitor the charge rates for the phones in our cart. We also put in a Raspberry PI that monitors the internal temp inside the cart. Having a historical record of the temperature gave us some insight into the AC in the build being turned down at night causing the phones to overheat.
