Send URL shortcut command without opening a new page?

Isaac Bergman 5 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Max R 3 days ago 31 1 duplicate

Can you add an option to Shortcut Tiles Settings, so you can execute a URL command in the background without opening a new window?

For example, I have created station preset buttons and volume controls in ActionTiles, but when the URL is sent, the server returns a device/command status response message which I don't care to view, and is annoying since I have to navigate back to the panel via the Android back button.

Perhaps a "Don't open a window" option would do the trick?

Outdoor temperature from Weather Underground to replace SmartWeather Station

Steve McVey 2 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 week ago 1

I have been using the SmartWeather Station tile from Smartthings on my 8" Fire tablet and it is still working but it only updates every three hours, which makes it useless since the temperature can be vastly different in that range. I'm looking for a way to replace this functionality and simply display the current outdoor temperature sourced from a Weather Underground station a few houses away. Given that SmartWeather Station is no longer supported (True?) is there a replacement for this seemingly simple function? I have seen forecast and weather map tiles but not plain old temperature. Bonus for humidity, lumins, barometer, etc.


Hubitat Safety Monitor Status HSM

brumster 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Jackg 3 months ago 8

Hi there, 

Has anyone managed to get the HSM Status of a Hubitat hub onto a panel? If so, how? I've got WebCore if that helps?

Thanks :-)

Hide Tilesets Using Configurable Status

Jeff 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by cobee 4 months ago 3 1 duplicate

I would like to be able hide a tileset based on whether or not I'm home, or if the home security is in alarm. I would like to enter a PIN/password to reset the alarm. It would also be nice to have a tileset be view only until a PIN is entered to allow changes.

Something just changed?

TheLAD 8 months ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 7 months ago 16

This morning, several of my tiles were grey with small "?" in the middle.  Have not seen this before.  Nothing changed in the last few weeks.  When I touched some of the tiles, they resumed working, but some are still showing grey with "?".  Getting same behavior on both my Samsung Tab A and my iPad.

Ecowitt Air Quality Sensor Attributes from Hubitat to Actiontiles

Bruce123 9 months ago in Panels (dashboards) 0

Currently, I can see the air quality CO2, PM2.5, PM10, AQI, Temp, and Humidity in Hubitat tiles, but in ActionTiles, I cannot access PM2.5, PM10 and AQI.  Any idea how I can get these attributes from Hubitat over to ActionTiles?

Smoke alarm

lee nesss 5 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Markus 12 months ago 6

I've added a Z-Wave Smoke Alarm to Smartthings. The icon shows a smoke alarm on the ST app, which is great. On the AT maintenance panel, it shows a smoking cigarette, which is fine, but the panel display only shows a question mark. 


Panel Background transparent

Jer Granzy 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) updated 12 months ago 2

Is there currently a way that I can make the Panel Background transparent?  I have tried to add a comma after the last RGB number and in the preview it shows as transparent, but that actual panel does not when loaded.

MJPEG feed loading delay

I am currently using VLC to encode my RTSP camera feeds from Unfi Protect so that they are usable on AT.

The issue I am having is that if I refresh one of my dashboards, the feeds will take 20-40 seconds to load. When using these Cameras to check all is ok around my property it can obviously become quite frustrating with such a wait before getting a live view.

Is anyone else experiencing delays with this?

I am using a server with plenty on resource for VLC.

I am having the delay with all devices whether it be edge, chrome, android tablets running AT app. Even tried safari on an iPad.

Activity Event history for Things, Tiles and Panels

Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Event History updated by Jer Granzy 1 year ago 61

I have created this Topic as a home base to discuss this Feature Request Idea which has been coming up a few times on the Forum and Helpdesk.


  • The SmartThings App offers a "Recently" tab when you look at the detail of a Thing or a Room.
  • SmartTiles has an "Event History" Tile which listed activity (status change) events for all Tiles on the entire Dashboard in a single list, ordered most recent to oldest.
  • SmartTiles allows developers to pull at most 7 days of activity history directly from their Cloud.
  • ActionTiles launched without this feature.

Why not already in ActionTiles?

  • One major factor in prioritizing what Features to offer at launch date was feedback from our tremendously helpful and valuable Beta testers. They used the product for months ... longer than we anticipated, since we found their ideas and recommendations to be compelling enough to implement some of them before launch.
  • Beta Participants have a private section of the Forum where they opened and discussed Idea and Bug Topics. We also sent out individual polls.
  • Event History was among the lowest popularity of all Feature requests.
  • They are a diverse enough group that we weight their opinions highly. This open ActionTiles Support & Ideas forum will bring us even more information to help prioritize.

What's the Current Plan?

  • We recognize that this feature may be "under-requested" at the present time, and yet would be highly valued by some customers.
  • Like every feature, it presents some challenges to implement. There are lots of design decisions to consider... We are already brainstorming!
  • When we're ready, we'll start with something basic, and then add enhancements based on your feedback.
  • Let's start by using this Topic to capture your Topic Votes and an open discussion of how you would personally use and value activity event history feature(s).



how to toggle off smartthings home monitor "arm" tiles when selecting disarm.

drew571 3 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 7

Hello.  Very new to AT but trying to dig in a bit.  I have Smart Things Home Monitor, using the new app, and have figured out how to set virtual switches to arm and disarm the alarm system from AT.  My question is, how do I configure AT to turn off the Arm Away or the Arm Stay switch when I select Disarm.  Is this possible?  Is it possible if I disarm it from my smart things app as well?  would like it to sync.  right now the Arm switches always show as "on" even after I've disarmed the system and i have to manually turn off the Arm switches.

Location Mode Tile Displaying Incorrect Mode

xdreamwalker 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 1 year ago 13

I have noticed that my Mode tile does not always show the correct mode. It seems to happen when SmartThings has switched from Away to Home.

A screenshot shows that AT shows Away, but ST shows Home.

I have tried to change the mode using the AT tile, the tile will show home, but after a refresh of the page it shows Away again. The ST IDE Log shows this after I try to change the mode to home via the AT tile.

Add Today's Calendar Events to Tile

Angie G 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Keith Hume 1 year ago 15

I'd love to have the ability to add a tile that would bring in today's events from a calendar like Google or outlook. Could this be added as an enhancement?

embedding panel into iframe - shortcut issue

Bryan Mack 3 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Chad B 1 year ago 2

I am developing a panel for my rec room. I use a few different actiontiles panels within iframes of a website I host on my own domain. Everything works swimmingly except for shortcuts to apps on the tablet. These shortcuts (in the screenshot, my shortcuts are "Darts", "Sonos", and "Roku", which open their respective apps on the fire 10 tablet) work just fine when I view the panel directly via actiontiles app or URL -- but once I embed the panel to an iFrame, those 3 shortcuts simply do nothing any more. All of the other buttons retain their functionality. Any ideas on how to get the shortcuts working?  I'm using Android Fire 10 tablet and Fully browser.

Sports scores

jpozzoli 4 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Mike Reuben 2 years ago 5

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


Hi Brian,

There no direct way to implement this functionality. However, you could create a Media Tile and link to an image that displays the score and have the image refresh periodically.




Add Dexcom CGM Data - Great for T1Ds!

Donnie Iorio 3 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by parac 2 years ago 1

Hi everyone!  This one really is only going to be good for T1Ds (like me) or parents of kids with T1D that also wear a CGM. 

I set up Nightscout on a Heroku instance and have it iFramed to my ActionTile panels, including the one I have in my Tesla.  Really great for awareness, and you can set color thresholds to help keep me in range.

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

Nic 6 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by leftofdead 2 years ago 31 4 duplicates

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!
