Activity Event history for Things, Tiles and Panels

Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Event History updated by Jer Granzy 10 hours 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.


Background:

  • 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).

Thank-you!!!

RTSP to ActionTiles

NIS 2 years ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 weeks ago 3

Hello - I am new to AT but I have found it to be one of the better dashboards for custom smart homing.. Anyway, one of my biggest issues right now is live video cam feeds. I've searched for days, on different dashboard apps as well and it seems RTSP is a huge issue for apps like this. Why don't any of these people support direct RTSP? whatever... the fact is, I am trying my hardest to get this to work even just for one tile and I can't. 

I've got hikvision cameras, provision-isr cameras, even a few other IP cameras however I don't have any of those cloud based garbage cameras like nest or ring because I don't believe in having my security on a cloud where anybody can hack and gain access to millions of account including mine (i wonder where I get that insecurity from.. oh wait, it actually DOES Happen) so I prefer selling my customers camera systems which I can locally grant access and secure and know that there isn't a cloud account that can be hacked thus giving my customer, as well as my own set up a bit more security - in my opinion that is. 

Anyway, I am hoping someone has figured out a solid way to do this because I have a few actiontiles I want to set up with one or two tiles displaying cameras like the front and back door, garage, etc.

I have the RTSP part of it working smoothly and across the network and internet, I just can't figure out how to turn them into HTTP streams or any other method that is supported in AT.


Here's hoping someone has an answer. Thanks in advance!

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

drew571 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 weeks 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 5 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 weeks 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.

Share your favorite Weather Media Tiles?

Den 5 years ago in Media Tiles / Weather & Traffic updated by Sidney 2 months ago 187



This national weather radar is so far my most useful Media Tile. I configured it for 3x2 tile size. Someday I intend to have a front door camera Media Tile.

Answer
  • If the image in a Post has been placed with a full URL link to the original; just right-click and choose "Copy image address."
  • There might be enough clues in the address to find the source website so you can find variations, such as local weather.
  • When posting, if you used the "<>" (HTML edit feature) to surround the URL of the image source with <pre> and </pre>, then the URL will be show in text instead of the image ... or try the "Code" Formatting option (under the paragraph symbol ¶).

Synology Surveillance Station

Justin 5 years ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by BBQ_Dad 2 months ago 11

Hello! First off great app, it's really speedy and I love the setup capability.


Question about video feeds. I live in a world where I have two types of FOSCAM cameras for my house. A C1 for inside and a FI9803 outside. These cameras do not support http streaming via url.


Originally they were not bought for http streaming but rather a tight integration into my synology surveillance station for surveillance DVR etc...


Synology provides a few ways to access a live video feed but I will focus on two:


1. https://[external ip address]:5001/webapi/SurveillanceStation/streaming.cgi?api=SYNO.SurveillanceStation.Streaming&method=LiveStream&version=2&_sid=cVlEBPLYbJaOI1470MGN778701&cameraId=18


This is the url to view a live feed via https. Running this in a browser, however, does not seem to work. Running it in ST does.


2. You can also connect via RSTP.


My question is whether any other users attempted a connection this way as opposed to going directly into the camera?

SHM & STHM options?

CrankyCowboy 2 years ago in Things & Capabilities updated by NicoTxItal 3 months ago 30

So I recently decided to dive into all of "this" (ie. actiontiles, smartthings etc.) It's sort of hard to keep up since things constantly evolve and when you read older topics sometimes those issues have been resolved etc.  I wanted a "dashboard" or "frontend" to interface with smartthings. I only had a couple of conditions that needed to be met. I wanted to be able to control all/most of my "smart devices", I wanted Alexa integration, and I wanted to be able to control my home security via the panel that I chose. I did a lot of reading and it appeared that smartthings with actiontiles would do all of what I wanted. I purchased a ST hub, a actiontiles license and a Konnected alarm module. I've learned a lot along the way and things have been relatively smooth. But here is where I've hit a roadblock...

It looks like actiontiles doesn't (yet) support the v3 new app where STHM is concerned...and apparently, SHM is no longer an option in the classic app (at least for new accounts...it no longer shows up and can't be added). I've seen some workarounds that sort of make the v3 app work by using some virtual switches and the classic app...but without SHM in the classic app, I don't think that workaround works. So that means the Konnected alarm module I purchased won't work via actiontiles (I have it working in smartthings v3 STHM). Are there any solutions to bring it all together given that I can't add it in the classic app? Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks.

TinyCam Pro - Only loads 6 camera's

ayalad1962 7 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated 3 months ago 3

Hi, I am using Tinycam pro on a Fire tablet. I have 8 camera's I am only able to see 6 of the 8. No matter what combination I can only get 6 to stream. I can see the stream of all the camera's in the Tinycam Pro live viewer. I can see all the camera's in My Media. The camera tiles populate in actiontiles but 2 of the 8 are blank, no stream. Is there a limit to the amount of camera's or some setting to allow all the 8 camera's to show? Thanks.

Touch ID instead of pin

derrickho328 4 years ago in Security updated by Ivan Sanchez 4 months ago 3

for secure pins, can we use Touch ID instead of a four digit pin?

iOS
Answer

I don't believe this is possible. There is no Web API to access Touch ID.


If such API appears, I would be curious to investigate if it could be used for AT.

embedding panel into iframe - shortcut issue

Bryan Mack 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Chad B 5 months 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.
