ZWay Room Images - Slow and buggy

Post by Aegis »

So Im writing a Z-Way client app for Android using the ZWay API. Its working well but one issue I've encountered is dealing with room images. There are currently two major headaches.

1 - Uploading any jpeg images using the smarthome UI room editor results in a corrupted JPEG image. This used to work on older Z-Way versions but after updating the firmware a while ago it just doesnt work anymore.

2 - Uploading any image lager than 300 x 300 basically results in an unusable experience. Image loading takes forever and bogs down the entire API. In 2017, a web server should not have any issues server high resolution images. A well optimized 1024 x 1024 JPEG can land at ~ 100kb.

Ive reported both issues on the Z-Way Github page, but no response yet. Anyone having the same issues?

No news? Like it is today the room image function is useless. I've yet to successfully manage to add images to all my rooms. Most often only half or nothing is displayed. I think they are converted to byte arrays and stored as strings in json as everything else in zway. No wonder it does not like large images.
