Weather Tile and Virtual Sensor Tiles Not Working

John Fish 5 months ago updated by k0jdd 3 weeks ago 27

My weather tile and tiles that depend on virtual sensors just stopped workiing.  Any suggestions?


SmartThings deprecated the SmartWeather device and there's no replacement at this time. The Weather Tile as we know it is probably gone forever. It will be replaced be a native implementation at some point in the future.

The original Virtual devices that were implemented in Groovy are either gone or broken across the board.

To create new Virtual devices under the new platform, please use the new IDE:


Use Action tiles with echo show 15

esalomo 3 months ago updated 3 months ago 2


Did anyone figure out a way to use the Echo show 15 with Action tiles? this would be a great thing to have as I have many tiles in my dashboards so the bigger the screen the better it would be.

I see there are all type of challenges with Amazon blocking any side loading apps on this specific device so I wounder if anyone figured this out and if there is a way to run action tiles on this device?

Media Tiles update interval has been 'sketchy' since about the time of the retirement of groovy

k0jdd 7 months ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 months ago 3

Since around the time of the the retirement of Groovy my static image media tiles have not been updating on a consistent basis.  It does not seem to matter what I set the refresh interval to - I have also tried leaving it blank.

Clicking on them does not refresh them which I also find strange. I can 'force' a refresh by reloading the panel or restarting the browser but that is not what I want.

Any thoughts?


Hubitat - actiontiles stuck on INIT after working fine for many weeks - Initializing SmartApp Version: 6.10+002-Prod

Jay Martin 8 months ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 8 months ago 4

After working fine for many weeks, I went this morning to authorize an additional device in Actiontiles and now the app shows "INIT" and won't go beyond INIT, and I see "Initializing SmartApp Version: 6.10+002-Prod" in the logs over and over. I have rebooted my hub, updated the connection on the actiontiles side, and none of this is making any change.

SmartWeather Station Tile location Authorization issue

johnh1967 10 months ago updated by Feliz Lalof 9 months ago 6

I recently had to authorize my AT panels with my Samsung account. It always seems like there's something new that I have to do with AT, but I think this was a requirement from ST I believe. 

I currently have two ST hubs in different locations with two AT seat licenses. I noticed that once I authorized my (at home) AT with my Samsung account, the SmartWeather Tile app stopped giving me its location and other weather data. 

I looked at the panel with the same SmartWeather tile app connected to the other hub  (different house, different AT seat license) had not been authorized yet, and the weather tile was still working perfectly. Once I authorized that panel through AT and Samsung, the SmartWeather tile was also not working correctly.

I had to authorize my AT with my Samsung account because AT was not updating the status of switches and lights correctly. I am wondering if anybody else is experiencing the same situation.

Lutron Serena Shades issues

rbeckert 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 8

I've added 7 SERENA SHADES by LUTRON to SMARTTHINGS and 'authorized' them. In the ActionTiles app, they appear in LOCATION/HUB DETAILS but when I go to create HubTiles in a tileset, they are not listed.

TonyV 2 years ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1

I have Lutron Serena Shades that worked a few days ago. I believe Samsung did some update and I'm no longer able to control my shades and add a tile with them. I get Error 400: device failed to execute command off, java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Command 'off' is not supported by device xxxxxxx of type 'placeholder'.

Kore running through AT via Fully Kiosk Browser PLUS edition

gomezcarsonk 3 years ago updated 3 years ago 1

Has anyone gotten Kore running through AT via Fully Kiosk Browser PLUS edition? Following instructions I've found elsewhere on this forum I believe it should be working but I'm getting an "App not found for intent" pop up.

So in short what I think I'm looking for is Intent information for Kore if available (or confirmation that it is not available".

Thank you.

Smartweather tile

bluebanana 3 years ago updated by Sidney 3 years ago 15

Is it possible to add more tiles than the ones listed (see attachment). I'm not interested in the weather tile as it is too busy but it would be good to break out the other parameters as separate tiles. The second attachment from the IDE lists all the parameters and several are much more useful than the ones already available.

AT, Fully and Baby Monitor

Steven Atherton 3 years ago 0

Hello, I'm using Fully on an old android tablet to show AT. I have it setup to activate a screensaver to prevent screen burn, which all works fine. I recognise this is probably more of a Tasker question, but thought this a good place to get advice.

I also use the tablet as a baby monitor. When the baby is placed in his crib, Tasker intercepts an android notification, detecting his presence in the crib, opens the baby monitor app and displays the camera.

Everything works well, but Fully seems to still activate the screensaver even when the baby monitor app is open.

Is there a way around this? Maybe a setting in Fully to only activate the screensaver if the Fully app is active, or a workaround in Tasker? I've tried killing Fully when the baby monitor app opens but my device is not rooted so doesn't seem to work.

Any help appreciated
