I am attempting to get actiontiles theme to use a URL for its background. It seems to work when I set it but when I change the image on the web server (the URL remains the exactly the same) it does not seem to update. Should it update when this changes or am I assuming something is there that is not?
Apologies for the basic questions, I did search through all settings menus and also on this forum but couldn't find an answer.
In one tileset, I have a 2x2 tile followed by two 1x1 tiles. I would like the two 1x1 tiles to be in a column, as opposed to a row. As an example, in the attached screenshot, I would like the 'Posh lights' tile to be underneath the 'TV lights' tile as opposed to the right of it.
Secondly, is it possible to hide the status of a switch on a tile? I.e. the 'on' or 'off' wording at the bottom of the tiles.
I am currently in the free trial time, but plan on purchasing a licence.
Thank you in advance.
When authorizing devices from Smartthings I see a list of sections containing duplicates of my devices. What is the difference in these sections and should I check all duplicates for an item I want or just the first one of each or what?
SmartThings only allows to select devices by capabilities. Since some devices have multiple capabilities, they may appear in several groups. This is normal and there's no harm in selecting the same device several times, it actually makes no difference.
The SmartThings mobile app has a "select all" check box, which makes device selection a little easier.
With the death of Simple Device Viewer, I no longer have an easy way to know what devices are offline. SmartThings will spam me forever about batteries being below 15%, but it never seems to tell me when devices are offline (other than when the hub goes offline).
Is it possible to display the offline status of devices in ActionTiles? Preferably as a third option (for a contact sensor this would be open, closed, offline), but I'll take whatever will work.
It's possible that the API that SDV relied on is the same one that ActionTiles relies on, in which case I could see this would not be possible.
Make sure to check device list #11.
Since I converted from the Classic Smartthings APP I am having troubles with reporting presence of my wifes phone (Samsung Note) and my phone (Samsung Galaxy S9) in Action Tiles. Not sure if this is on the smartthings side or the integration with Action Tiles. Is there additional configurations settings that I might have not addressed in the new environment. Any Insight would be appreciated.
Used to work fairly well in the classic app - although temperamental at times. Now it is very inconsistent in reporting presence.
Hi! New user here.
I love actiontiles as a product and would like to add a suggestion, or ask if its even possible.
I would like to have my screen change whats being displayed based on events. So when i activate my alarm, i´d like for the panel to only show certain things, but, when the alarm is off, it changes to another tile to display other information.
is it possible?
Is there a way to get a tile that shows battery level to change to a different color when the battery level is low?
Derek, when battery level is <= 25%, it's intent is set to Accent. When it's <= 5% the intent is set to Warn. The intents colors change according to Panel Theme.
hi there. i just replaced an older honeywell thermostat with a spankin' new T10 pro model, that comes with an indoor sensor, for use in another room. it works well but the only humidity readings are from the separate sensors. i'm wondering if anyone has figured out how to access (from with AT...) the humidity reading from the included sensor... any insights appreciated.
I have set up two presence sensors (iphones via the classic app). They are showing as ? on the tile. So, I hit the forum and saw the advice that it is because the Device Type Handler doesn't have a value set for "attribute switch". Makes sense. I fired up the IDE and sure enough...
|Current States||No states found|
I can't see where to edit the device to add states to this Device Type Handler, and my Googling is failing me. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Sorry if this is a topic already covered, I tried to do a quick search but couldn't find it. I have my ActionTiles set up and love it. I was trying to figure out how to make a tile act as a button, instead of it being a switch. I wanted to push a button to activate a scene, or even my Roomba, that's it but then ActionTiles illuminate it as if it's on. If I turn the light off, or when my Roomba returns back to its dock when it's complete, it's done but ActionTiles thinks the scene is active. Can we set a tile so that it's pushed to activate but then it's off, rather than toggling it to be "on"?
I need help setting up action tiles. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8" because I already have it on hand. I want to be able to do the following
Have dakboard as a background
Have a button in actiontiles to launch the Arlo app (unless someone has figured out a way to show the Arlo cameras in actiontiles
When running Fully, I need to have it to where if someone rings my Arlo doorbell, the Arlo app launches over the top and I can answer it.
I want to have a tab in actiontiles to view my Google calendar.
I also need to be able to have the screen off most of the time and have it activate when the camera detects motion (I know you can do it on fire tablets, how do I do it on a Samsung?)
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help
Thanks for any help you can provide
Hello, I would like to create my own custom image for each tile that I have on my panel. For example, in my current setup, as seen in my image, I have a master panel consisting of multiple other panels which are the rooms in my house. I would like to put an image of the corresponding room on the tile displaying the panel for that room. EX: An image of my living room for my living room panel, an image of my dining room for my dining room panel, etc. Same thing goes for the URL tiles on the bottom of my image. I would like to place the Icons or Logos of the brands app that the URL tile opens. Is there a way to do this or can this be done in the near future?
I am aware that you can go into themes and create a custom theme with a custom image but the issue with that is it changes all of my tiles to the same image. Can that feature just be included in the setting of each tile with a link to a URL?
Thank you for the help
Even though I have owned AT for a year I am only now trying to get into it and use it.
I am trying to understand the tile positioning and layout.
My assumption is that it is like a "word-wrap" and that AT will automatically position the tile where it can fit it. So in my screenshot below "5" is placed in the next available position.
Is there any move towards a more "rigid" type of tile placement?
The way I would see this working is that you would create a panel for each device you want to run AT on and drag and drop the tiles into a "fixed" position.
It could also be I am a newbie and don't know what I am talking about. :-)
