In tile font size options?

av8or 2 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated 2 months ago 2

Is there any way to adjust the in tile font size? not the tile title size but actually in the tile as seen in my screen shot, the temp and status "78º idle" are crazy tiny and there's a lot of space in the tile to make it larger and easier to read


Open intent url with-in Fully window

KDay3 3 months ago in Configuration & Settings 0

I'm new here so if I am in the wrong place please direct me to the proper sub forum, after much troubleshooting and searching online I have not found an answer.

I have licensed Actiontiles & Fully Kiosk, I want to open one of my apps using intent url with-in the Fully window yet regardless of my settings in Actiontiles using "My shortcuts" and "Tile settings",and Fully's many options, nothing is giving me the result I am looking for.

My cameras via Blue Iris UI3, my weather links etc. all open with the Fully Action Bar visible, but my Smart Life app via intent url (example: intent:#Intent;launchFlags=0x10000000;component= etc. : structure) opens in a new window without the top bar visible. I have tried all three "Tile Content" settings and all produce the same result below with Smart Life app - "Alarm Host".

Thank you

The Security tab with-in Actiontiles as a shortcut intent url is how this is done.

Top bar vanishes and the tablet status bar is now visible, although in Fully I have the Action bar set, even in Kiosk mode.


Themes and changing backgrounds?

twiseva 6 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated 6 months ago 2

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? 

Cheers, Tony.

Tile wrapping

Henry 3 years ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Jer Granzy 10 months ago 6

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.

What are the duplicate items in Re-authorize?

KamHouse 10 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 10 months ago 1

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.

Set tile color if device is offline?

Mike Thomas 11 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 11 months ago 1

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.

Presence Sensor - Smartthings New App

matemple61 1 year ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 1

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.


Change displayed tile based on events

Kex 1 year ago in Configuration & Settings 0

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?

Auto Resize Font

The Damien 1 year ago in Configuration & Settings updated 1 year ago 3

It would be RAD if the tile fonts resized themselves accordingly when the tile is resized. That would be super helpful vs having to create a new theme.

Battery Tile Color Change

Derek C 2 years ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 5

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.

It would useful to have possibility to enable the pin for only switch ON - for only switch OFF or for both as it is now.

presence sensor shows ? - how to change initial value?

johnmulholland 1 year ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 3

Hello all,

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 StatesNo 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.

How to set it as a button, instead of a switch

Auror 2 years ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1

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"?


Need help setting up Galaxy Tab E

Macjoel 2 years ago in Configuration & Settings 0

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 if you can help

Thanks for any help you can provide
