Since the rtsp support seems to be on hold for now I had to return the second camera I ordered on Amazon. But I managed to make one of my old camera work.
PLEASE list the exact brand for your camera here if you can confirm it works for you. This will help others with the new purchases.
Please list the http mask (URL format) you used.
Amazon purchase link also very much appreciated.
Feel free to add sreenshots to your camera tile too.
ActionTiles release 6.11.0 has been rolled out on March 28, 2020.
Window Shade Tile
New Tile type is available for devices that confirm to the official Window Shade Capability. This new tile works great with Ikea FYRTUR Blackout roller blinds.
Auto Reload App
Automatically reload the application after a period of inactivity. This is helpful when you wish to refresh Media Tiles or Video Streams if they become unstable over time.
This option is set per each display device, available under App Setting.
Confirmation notifications for Tile Actions are removed. Only error notifications will be shown.
This change was reverted due to user demand.
Major infrastructure updates
ActionTiles continues to invest in infrastructure maintenance to insure performant and secure operation of app. The back end changes for this release are mostly transparent to the end users. If you are experiencing any issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for most timely assistance.
Thank you for enjoying ActionTiles!
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.
Media tile that can be configured with two or more URL’s such that the tile rotates among the multiple images every ‘n’ seconds. Would enable rotating among multiple video cameras on a single tile, or rotating between video camera and weather images, for example.
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!
Hubitat integration is now ready for Public Beta!
We are opening up registrations starting today. You will be able to use the Hubitat Elevation platform with ActionTiles for an extended period of time, free of charge, while we iron out any kinks that come up. When the integration will be deemed stable, a standard 14-day free trial period will begin after advanced notice.
Make sure that your Hubitat Hub has the latest firmware built 126.96.36.199.
The use of ActionTiles platform is subject to our Terms and Conditions. A license will be required to continue using the Hubitat integration after a trial period. The licensing fees will be similar to SmartThings Locations / Hubs.
Continuing from very popular first 2 Galleries of Panels:
Here's a place for Customers to share your Panels and related stories. This content may be copied to other sharing services like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc..
NB: Inquiries about the techniques used to create the particular Panels, frames, etc., may be spun off by the Moderator into new Topics or Help Desk tickets to avoid too much threading here.
The biggest changes and new Features of this Release are the enhancements made to Theme Builder (and thus, much more powerful customization of Panel Appearance). On a related note, Tiles also have new Animations and Effects options!
I've pasted a snapshot at the end of this Post showing off some of the new Theme Builder.
Be creative - Go Wild!
We have had many Customer requests to allow Panels to be more vibrant, cool, textured, and fabulous. The new options in Theme Builder make this possible. You can use Google to find "wallpaper" library websites - many of which allow hot-linking of the images as a Panel Background Image. Tweak the opacity/transparency value of the Tile Background Color (for each Tile Intention) using the Color Picker, to decide how much of the beautify background to show through. And/or you can strategically use more Blank Tiles as windows to parts of the background, such as the blossoms on a tree branch, or the moons in a fantasy solar system...
Share your Creations, please; as Comments:
Help inspire Customers to dive into the Enhanced Theme Builder. Let us know what wallpaper gallery websites you find attractive. Many of the images on such websites are completely free of restrictions for personal use.
Thousand thanks, everyone. Looking forward to seeing your Panels with just simple bits of flair as well as a few which will surely be incredible works of art. - No pressure! 😉

I would like to show a portion of a website as a tile. The location of this content will be always in the same place of the website.
If possible I would like it to refresh every minutes or so
The website is to be logged in to see the content, but I don't mind letting the tablet or whatever to remember my login.
Use: I would like to show current Solar production, this stat is shown in my solar portal dashboard.
Is there any way to adjust the in tile font size? not the tile title size but actually in the tile as seen in my screen shot, the temp and status "78º idle" are crazy tiny and there's a lot of space in the tile to make it larger and easier to read
Is of this writing, it appears that Google devices (Cams, Thermostat and the Hello video doorbell) are now officially integrated with SmartThings and does indeed appear in the devices list within the SmartThings App.
Can anyone confirm is all device integrations i.e. Cam, Doorbell and Thermostat are up and running on ActionTiles and if yes, what the experience is like, any limitations?
Specifically, will I be able to see embedded live video feeds within ActionTiles?
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.
- 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 ¶).
Im looking into getting a Ring Pro doorbell but would I be able to add the live feed into action tiles?
Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, the Ring Pro uses a closed video feed locked to their cloud, and thus it cannot be accessed by ActionTiles.
Here's a reddit that discusses the issue:
But more up to date; SmartThings Community Topic:
We recommend that customers encourage their camera providers to provide video feeds in standard LAN (local area network) accessible formats.
Thought I would make a topic for known working sites for everyone to add to their ActionTile panels. I'll start off with:
* fast.com - internet speed test
-simple and works, just use fast.com
* windy.com - beautiful weather map with wind streams, radar etc
-set the view you like, then use the top left menu at windy.com, 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.
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'. Supported commands: [setShadeLevel, refresh, ping]
ActionTiles experienced a partial outage on August 3, 2021 at approximately 7pm MST.
For the duration of the outage, ActionTiles was unable to process and update device events. Connections from hubs was gradually restored over the period from 12:30am to 5am on August 4. The outage affected all users (both SmartThings and Hubitat), but did not result in any loss of data.
The root-cause of the issue is under investigation. We will take measure to prevent this from happening in the future.
I added ActionTiles to the home screen on an iPad. However, when open it, it always shows a bar on the top of the interface with "Done" "app.actiontiles.com" on the bar. I cannot get rid of them. Any idea how to remove them so I can see full screen?
