We have 2 Tailwind controllers -- one for each garage door at our house. Our house layout has 2 separate garages, and while we could have run wiring through the attic between the 2 garages to allow us to use 1 controller to control both doors, it was much simpler and faster to just install 2 separate controllers (and thanks to Scott for helping answering questions before I purchased!).
This leads to my feature request. Currently Tailwind has a 2-layer screen layout, where each controller is displayed, then tapping on the controller takes you to the screen to control the doors assigned to that controller. With our setup, that means a lot of back and forth to open or close more than one door. On the phone layout, there also a lot of empty space, so I have 2 suggestions/options that may help make the user interaction better.
Option 1: Allow grouping of all controllers for a location. Then when you go into that location, you can see all doors for that location. You may need to add a "controller row" so you can have a place to check controller options, but then it would allow a button for each garage on the same screen of the app.
Option 2: Collapse the 2 screen design into a single screen, showing a button for each garage door for all controllers on the first page -- again, perhaps with a "controller row" to separate the controllers and allow for settings changes for that controller.
Regardless of how this is approached, it would be great to be able to have a button for all doors regardless of the controller on a single page.
