How are you adding your music players to ActionTiles?

Sidney 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated 1 week ago 46

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.


iFrame Tiles - working sites

Kevin1 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 weeks ago 28

Thought I would make a topic for known working sites for everyone to add to their ActionTile panels.  I'll start off with:

* - internet speed test

  -simple and works, just use

* - beautiful weather map with wind streams, radar etc

  -set the view you like, then use the top left menu at, select "embed widget in page".   When you paste into ActionTiles, delete the html tags so you end up with only the long URL between quotes following src=.  If you get this incorrect, ActioNTiles seems to embed ActionTiles site in the iframe tile instead.

tileset status inheritance

Ross H 4 weeks ago in Panels (dashboards) / Notifications & Sound updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 weeks ago 1

Is there any way to change the status/color of a tileset icon when any of it's member icons changes status?  For example, I would like to put a single tileset icon on the main screen for Windows and another for Doors and to have the status of those icons change when any of my windows or doors are open.  This would radically reduce screen clutter.


Temperature tile normal vs warning

AlanL 3 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles 0

I have a tile that shows the temperature on a motion detector. The tile is in the  "normal"  condition state. Id like for it to stay "normal" when the temperature is bellow a certain point and change to warn then alert state when it above a certain point.


0-75 degrees = normal

76-80 =warn

80+ = alert.

hubitat on the back end.  Any ideas?


'Settings' panel

Bob Gross 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated 4 months ago 2

I would like to create a 'Settings' panel wherein we could easily make changes to values used in WebCoRE to, for instance, turn off lights.  I would like to be able modify times, temperatures (Centigrade), and other numeric values.  

Is there any way to achieve this?  What do other users do?



Help with tile double clicks

Cory13 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Tushar Arora 4 months ago 1

Hello, I was hoping someone can help me with an issue I'm having. I have tiles that turn on my pool heater or spa heater. In webcore I have actions that are done on a timer to make the changes. If someone clicks the tile a second time without waiting for the action to finish the logic is messed up. Does anyone know how to disable a tile after it has been clicked for a certain amount of time? Sometimes it the tile takes a second or 2 to light up and the person clicking will try again so i'd like to prevent that. Thank you!


Clock/Timezone Media Workaround, Anyone?

Max R 3 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Tushar Arora 4 months ago 4

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?

Thermostat Tile: Custom icon & colors when actively heating or cooling and for excessive heat or cooling

Computer Helper 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated 4 months ago 4

I can't find where to change the thermostat icon

I would like the tile to show red when actively heating, blue when cooling

Show a flashing red or blue when a "setpoint" is hit. Flashing red above 75 or flashing blue below 66

I have Smartthings setup to notify me if my tenants are turning the heat up.

Thank you,



Automation tiles instead of Scene tiles?

Mike Thomas 4 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 months ago 1

I'm rearranging my scenes & automations in SmartThings. Right now my ActionTiles panel refers to a single scene (called "Bedtime") that turns some lights off, locks the doors, and starts a countdown (using power allowance on a virtual switch) to turn on the interior cameras and turn off the last light.

I am planning on splitting that scene into several individual scenes - lights off, lock doors, cameras on, because that just make sense (to me anyway) as the individual scenes can be used for purposes other than bedtime.

The problem is, a SmartThings scene cannot call another scene (so I can't have a master scene that calls the 3 individual scenes).

I can, however, use a SmartThings automation (I have one already, it runs at 10pm if I forget to run it; I would modify it to call the individual scenes rather than the single Bedtime scene).

BUT - it appears that ActionTiles won't let me call an automation - is that by design?

SmartThings scenes look different and don't appear in ActionTiles

rsantone 10 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 45

I had a few, I guess "routines" in the ST Classic. "Goodbye" turned the heat down and set the mode to Away. "I'm Back" turned the heat up and set the mode to Home. Apparently something in these prevented migration to the new app so i deleted them and remade "Scenes" that did the same thing. They look different in the app, and don't show up in ActionTiles. What can I do? I've attached a pic.


The native Scene integration was rolled back on October 18 until farther notice. It will continue to work for those who already authorized their locations.

Meanwhile the following workaround remains available:

The method described above is sub optimal, however it's the most "user friendly" method to integrate the scenes. It's much less involved and dummy proof than running a scene via HTTP webhook.


Updated Honeywell Thermostats in ST, lost Dual Thermostat Control in AT

ChrisP 8 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 6

A few weeks ago, my two Honeywell TCC 9000 thermostats stopped having the ability to control set points in ST.  I found on reddit that others had the same issue, and had to remove and re-add them (via cloud connection to TCC again).  THis fixed the issue in ST, but then resulted in the thermostats being identified as "placeholder" for type in AT.

I went into the IDE, changed the type to what it was before, and now I can use them.  However, there is no Dual Control tile like before that allowed for heat/cool control in a single tile.  I have to add seperate heat and cool tiles now.

Unable to add scenes - Unauthorized Client error

sk108 5 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 1


I am trying to add a scene to one of my panels. When I click on Add Scenes button, it takes me to SmartThings authorization page and then I get an error "Unauthorized Client" even after a successful login. Please note that I have tried this several times on PC (Chrome browser) and phone (Google Pixel 3XL, Android 11 on Chrome browser), it gives me the same error.

I am aware about the workaround which involves creating a virtual switch and an automation. Wanted to know that if this feature (adding a scene directly as a tile) is still in beta?

Action tiles and grouped lights (please help)

Rachel 6 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 1

Hi everyone

Im currently working on a AT layout for a tablet. ive got everything working fine BUT ive got a slight issue with the reporting from i think Smarthings to Action Tile or it may me the Hue lights

When i add a single bulb it work fine lets say game bar 1 and game bar 2 (hue play bars) when i add them as a separate button in AT they work fine. HOWEVER...when i try and group them, the reporting doesnt work. Ive created a virtual switch called Virtual Games Room, ive tired from within the ST app under the smart lighting area and ive tried creating an automation rule but none of the groups want to work.. what am i doing wrong as this is the biggest area thats stopping me from finishing off the project


Elements Theme Customization

John Yaglenski 6 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated 6 months ago 2

Hey All:

Looking to customize a theme - and actually really like the simplicity of the elements theme - but when I go to build out my own in the theme creator - I can match up the colors etc of Elements (I just want to modify them slightly) but my locks which appear as RED blocks in the elements theme just come up as the "Normal" color in my theme.  

Why is that?  What makes the door locks RED in the default theme?  I actually like that as they stand out - but would like them to be orange instead.  

I'm sure as a relatively new user, it's something I'm just overlooking.

New SmartThings Home Monitor status incorrect

rsg123 9 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 7 months ago 6

When I change the alarm status in the ST app, it doesn’t reliably change the status in AT. If I change the status of the alarm on the AT panel, it always correctly changes the ST alarm status. Can someone please give my settings a glance to see if I’m doing something wrong? My kids have set off the alarm a few times since the new ST app migration because they see the panel and it indicates disarmed.


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

Nic 4 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by EmpireHome 7 months ago 30

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!
