Open media fullscreen from SmartThings using Fully API or ActionTiles API

Christophe 3 weeks ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated 3 weeks ago 2

I would like my fire tablets under Fully browser to open my camera media tile fullscreen when motion are detected. Since fully browser support REST and js call, is there a way to do that from webcore maybe ?
Thank you

How are you adding your music players to ActionTiles?

Sidney 2 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by dkbishop 4 weeks ago 14

I was just wondering how everyone else is adding their music players to ActionTiles.

I am using an app called Echo Speaks that is added to my SmartThings as a Smart App.

I can control the Echo's Play, Stop, Pause, Volume and Skipping.

Right now, I can only control the Volume of the Fire HDs.


The individual Echo Tiles also show up in their respective Room Panels.  So when I go into the Living Room Panel, the 'Echo - Living Room' tile is in there as well.

Dimmer slider, color picker always visible via a special new Tile type?

Nic 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by David Stafford 1 month ago 29

I apologize if this has been discussed already, I couldn't find an answer. Is it possible to have a dim slider or color picker shown next to the switch all the time instead of having to click the three dots? I think it would be really helpful to be able to simply slide the dimmer without going through a menu.


Thanks for everything!

Allow information & Media Tiles to act as Shortcut Tiles

Kristopher J. 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Steve B 1 month ago 11

It would be awesome if we could change the destination of a tile.  For example, adding a tile displaying the current temperature, but change the destination to anything else.  Such as a different panel or pops up the thermostat settings, etc.  Another idea would be a static icon, that links to a media content (such as showing a simple "CCTV" icon that when clicked opens the full-screen live camera media content.  (Instead of showing the live content in the small tile)

All or Multiple Contact Sensors Tile

David Latham 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Steve B 1 month ago 21

How about a tile that combines multiple contact sensors? On my phone it takes up a lot of space to have a tile for each sensor. Could we have one that says "All doors - closed / Door open". Then if a door is open have a pop up window that lists the open doors.


Another description from Merged Topic:

Would it be possible to add a summary tile, for the purpose of summarizing a bunch of similar devices?


For example - if any open/close sensor (in a specified group of sensors) is open, display an orange tile, else a gray tile. Possibly if you tap on the tile it would take you to a user-defined panel (which the user would have set up up to display the appropriate devices).


I thought about setting up a virtual switch, but I don't see a way to have that switch represent "all windows closed" vs. "any window open".


Another example (more complicated than I need, but might be useful to some) - the average, minimum, and maximum temperatures of a set of temperature sensors.


My rationale - on my main panel I have an "at a glance" section that displays the status of three doors (open/closed) and two doorlocks (locked/unlocked). I have now added 6 window sensors, which would make the "at a glance" be more like a novel.


Thanks.

"Smart Locks" tile?

Gib 2 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 months ago 3

I've searched for any previous posts about this, but maybe I'm the first to ask about it. I find that hard to believe. 

We've got the ability to have the SHM tile, which seems to work well. Within the SmartThings app, SHM lives in a card on my dashboard called "Home Solutions". The other thing that lives in that card is "Smart Locks". 

"Smart Locks" is actually really useful..... So, why can't I have a tile for "Smart Locks" in AT like I have for SHM?  I just want a single tile that shows if all doors are locked or displays how many are unlocked. If I click it, it should either take me to another panel or perhaps a pop up like the pin pad that lists all of my locks (preferably with a button at the top that I can click to lock all), or check each individual lock on that panel to either lock or unlock separately. 

Is Samsung just not allowing access to that function?

Sports scores

Is it possible to have a tile, or perhaps several, to show scores of certain teams (which I define) across different sports?

Toggle swapping of Heating / Cooling Thermostat Tile

Israel Derdik 3 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Bloodtick 3 months ago 4

Now that spring is upon us, I find myself redoing all my panels to switch the heating thermostats into cooling thermostats. This process involves adding the cooling thermostats to the panel, arranging them so they are next to the old heating thermostats and then removing the old heating thermostats. For 3 panels. I'll have to do the same thing in reverse in 6 months. Instead, can AT show the heating or cooling thermostat automatically based on the System mode of the thermostat in question? Or add a new "Dynamic Thermostat" tile to keep backward compatibility? Or if that's too difficult, allow an easy toggle in the tile settings to flip it between heating and cooling? The Dual thermostat takes up too much room on my screen to use like this.

Open Panel from Non-Actionable Tiles

Jeff Lightfoot 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 months ago 3

I'd like the option to open a Panel Shortcut by clicking on a Sensor / Contact tile.


My example:  I have an aggregate simulated contact sensor that shows the status of all my contact sensors.  Click on that tile to open a panel with the status of all my contact sensors.


This would save me from having a neighbor panel shortcut tile.

iFrame Tiles (web page embedding)

dennybono 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Robert Gill 3 months ago 33

It would be nice to be able to display a small iframe "tile" on my panel. For example my access points have apis that allow me to view their status. I'd like to show that on my panel.

Sonos State not accurate after latest Sonos update

Oto Float 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 months ago 1
Hello,

I have noticed that Action Tiles is not integrating properly with Sonos after this most recent Sonos update. For example, see the attached screen grabs where Action Tiles is not showing the correct status of Sonos:

Virtual Switches to trigger other integrations (IFTTT etc)?

cgmckeever 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated 4 months ago 2

Is there any way to create a custom 'virtual' button/switch that can be tied to a different action? My example is primarily for use with IFTTT. If ActionTiles had a button action (pressed) or switch (on/off) I could add arm/disarm of ARLO and other smart integrations.

Countdown timer

evldave 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Todd Mumpower 5 months ago 1

Am migrating our entry tablet into ActionTiles.  Using a basic Android tablet with a countdown timer widget (kids usually want Christmas, I want the day they all move out).  Is there a way to add a countdown timer tile to ActionTiles?  I tried using a couple online countdown timers but they don't seem to display correctly in the tile (they are just a link to that page).  Any ideas?

SHM and buzzer

Todd Mumpower 6 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 5

I am using a routine to set my SHM to Armed(Away) with the button Arm Away No PIN at my exit door pad. I have a Konnected buzzer with an exit/entry delay (using SHM Delay). I use the same ActionTiles button to arm my system from my bedroom pad when going to bed. I can control the buzzer with webcore (on/off). Is there a way to turn off the buzzer when arming from my bedroom pad so that I don't get the exit delay before going to bed?

Thermostat Tile show actual Temperature as main Content

mfdigital1 6 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated 6 months ago 2

When displaying thermostats on tiles action tiles shows temperature setting with large numerals and the actual temperature with very small numerals.  Is there a way, and if not, could a setting be had to reverse the way numbers are displayed. It would be nice to know at a glance what the temperature actually is.

Reload / Refresh as a Tile

sec.dom 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Luke C. Ruppersburg, Sr. 7 months ago 10

I would have liked the opportunity to have a Tile that would refresh / reload the page. Without relying on the browser's refresh / reload button.


Inside an ActionTiles Panel itself with no Floating Panel Options Button (...). Even a PIN Protected Panel Options button is unnecessary clutter.


This would allow me without having to exit the application that is in full screen mode, to restart Actiontiles when you press commands and the word error appears at the top. When I refresh the page, Actiontiles goes back to work as if nothing had happened. I am using Wink Relay which may explain the errors I'm experiencing, but a Reload Tile is a sufficient solution.

Clock/Timezone Media Workaround, Anyone?

Max R 7 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles 0

While we're waiting for a clock tile with [hub]timezone support, I was wondering if anyone's come across a media source for a bitmap/videostreamed clock in any given timezone? All I'm looking for is having a tile display the current Pacific Standard Time no matter where I am in the world. Any suggestions?

Weather Tile missing main current condition icon

Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 8 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated 8 months ago 4

Due to Weather Underground's change of their API policy and SmartThings not updating their "Smart Weather Tile Device" to be fully compatible, you may find that ActionTiles official Weather Tiles do not display a "primary current condition" icon.

We are investigating...

"Active" Intention for Panel Link Tiles

JB Bentz 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated 8 months ago 3

Can a Media tile actually do anything, or be a shortcut?  I'd like to set up a navigation UI, using image media tiles, that are clickable, to navigate from one panel to the next.  I was going to edit the graphics so you could tell which panel was "Active" at the time.  Here's a very rudimentary mock up with the first icons I could find. 


I started making the tiles and then I realized it was a moot point if they weren't clickable.  


As a secondary option, can we assign a panel intention to a shortcut tile?  If that was the case, I could essentially accomplish the same thing, and use the tile intention as the means of telling which panel is displayed.
