Lutron Serena Shades issues

rbeckert 1 year ago updated 8 months ago 9

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.

Kore running through AT via Fully Kiosk Browser PLUS edition

gomezcarsonk 1 year ago updated 1 year 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 2 years ago updated by Sidney 1 year 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 1 year 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

Hide and show hub tiles depending on the status?

matoza 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 2

Is it possible to hide and show hub tiles depending on the status?

I have about 15 contact sensors (doors and windows) and I only want to see doors and windows that are open.

For me this is a quite basic function but I can't find any simular in the knowledge base. 

Is it possible to configure any functionallity based on status?

Custom CSS

Christian Persson 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 7

Looking at the forum there was a few years ago discussions on Custom CSS support, has there been any progress to this or any form of roadmap that plans on implementing this?

Or has there been any "unsupported" way of dealing with it from the community even?

Custom Ceiling fan DTH not recognized as fan in actiontiles

Kenneth. 2 years ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 2

I've used this DTH. When I add the action tile for the fan, the slider bar on the actiontile is for the light and not the fan. Is there a way to change that, so it controls the speed of the fan instead of the light? It works fine in smartthings.

I'd like to be able to choose a larger iFrame tile size that 6x6.  Is there a reason it is limited to that max dimension?

Recommended Kiosk App for iPadOS

John Andy 2 years ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 4

I've been working to set-up two iPads in my home as Actontiles Kiosks. I have used the "Kiosk App" and it seemed to work for about a day and now I'm getting "Error 429" when I touch an Actiontiles Button.

Is there a recommended App such that I could use iPads reliably for stationary/wall-mount function and Actiontiles?


A way to display custom messages

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

I'm just now revisiting Actiontiles (I checked out other dashboards about 5 years ago and gave up on it).

I'm absolutely loving actiontiles and the possibilities with outside the box thinking to display what I want.

I need help with a way to implement custom messages.  My idea is to have a virtual switch called "warnings" that will light up (switch on) via webcore when a "warning" is detected with webcore automation.  I then want to display any active warnings and potentially color code them for how urgent they are.  Examples would be "leak sensor detected water under the aquarium" or "server room temperature is 90 degrees" would be very urgent.  "Temperature is above 80 in the guest room" - not as urgent as the AC might be turned off or the door is closed.

The idea is to have the possibility of 0, 1, or multiple warnings displayed at once.

Some ideas to achieve this:

1.) Have a panel called "warnings" that has to be opened.  Within the Panel have a virtual switch per type of warning.  

This would be very annoying creating a virtual switch per issue that could happen.  I would then need to create a webcore routine that triggered each switch at the right time, then disable the switch when the issue is resolved.

I have already created this concept for my Roomba robot for when it gets "stuck" but I don't look forward to having to create virtual switches for all other types of warnings.

2.) Have webcore write to some file that can be display through an iframe.  This would be similar to the request for log history/actions.

This would require the ability for either webcore or IFTTT to add then remove entries after the issue is resolved from some type of file, along with correct formatting.

3.) Combination of #1 and #2 above.  I could create a warnings panel and within the panel have common types of warnings that light up like Water Sensor, temperature, garage door left open and kitty sneaking out.  I could then use option #2 to give more details on which device and more details on the issue.

To give you an idea of the size of potential warnings/issues that could come up and how much we use smart devices we have about 120 devices installed (that is not counting virtual devices) through smartthings.  When you add in alexa and other hubs/bridges we have a lot more.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  

(I plan to post pictures of my display in the gallery soon, still messing around with them).



brendanwheatley 4 years ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 22

I'm new to smart things and now action tiles. I'm having trouble understanding routines. I have selected a routine to create a tile, but I can't make it do anything. I've looked over this forum and can't find anything that talks about what they are in depth. I thought they might allow me to automate things. It looks like there is an area when building tiles to select from different ones, but it is empty. Any help would be huge. Thanks

Hi Brad,

ActionTiles will support scenes, but we don't provide ETAs for feature releases.

This article describes workaround to make Scenes work with ActionTiles right now:

Recent Issue with Video Stream

sean2a 2 years ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1

A few weeks ago I noticed my video streams on a few of my panels are no longer loading. They are set up as MJPGS. When I load them in a separate tab outside of action tiles they load with no issues. I am using the newest version of Chrome (Version 85.0.4183.121).
