add echo button to actiontiles

A11eycta00 2 days ago updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 19 hours ago 1

Hi there. I am fairly new to AT and it is great.

I have a few of the large echo buttons that do a routine when pressed. Is their a way to get them on AT as a tile at all?

Open intent url with-in Fully window

KDay3 yesterday at 11:09 a.m. in Configuration & Settings 0

I'm new here so if I am in the wrong place please direct me to the proper sub forum, after much troubleshooting and searching online I have not found an answer.

I have licensed Actiontiles & Fully Kiosk, I want to open one of my apps using intent url with-in the Fully window yet regardless of my settings in Actiontiles using "My shortcuts" and "Tile settings",and Fully's many options, nothing is giving me the result I am looking for.

My cameras via Blue Iris UI3, my weather links etc. all open with the Fully Action Bar visible, but my Smart Life app via intent url (example: intent:#Intent;launchFlags=0x10000000;component= etc. : structure) opens in a new window without the top bar visible. I have tried all three "Tile Content" settings and all produce the same result below with Smart Life app - "Alarm Host".

Thank you

The Security tab with-in Actiontiles as a shortcut intent url is how this is done.

Top bar vanishes and the tablet status bar is now visible, although in Fully I have the Action bar set, even in Kiosk mode.

  2. https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12/topics/4847-show-me-your-panels-gallery-2

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.

More details (Release Notes) about ActionTiles v6.10.0 (enhanced Theme Builder) are at:  

https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12/topics/7072-release-v6100-enhanced-theme-builder-backgrounds-transparency-gradients-minor-touches-fixes

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! 😉

Android 13 has broken Fully Kiosk on Samsung Tab

TheLAD 1 week ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 days ago 2

Recently updated my Samsung Tab A to Android 13.  Since then, screen does not wake up on camera motion or sound or touching the screen.  Only current solution according to FK tech support is to have the screen stay on 100% of the time.  I am worried about that burning the screen.  In the mean time I have resorted to just using Chrome to display the AT panel.  To facilitate ready access, I removed PIN protection on the lock screen so I only have to swipe to restore AT panel when the screen saver comes on.  Anyone have a better solution?

How are you adding your music players to ActionTiles?

Sidney 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated 1 week ago 46

I was just wondering how everyone else is adding their music players to ActionTiles.

I am using an app called Echo Speaks that is added to my SmartThings as a Smart App.

I can control the Echo's Play, Stop, Pause, Volume and Skipping.

Right now, I can only control the Volume of the Fire HDs.


The individual Echo Tiles also show up in their respective Room Panels.  So when I go into the Living Room Panel, the 'Echo - Living Room' tile is in there as well.

How do I add the SmartWeather tile?

Brian Beaird 4 years ago in Things & Capabilities updated by hallgatag 1 week ago 48

I see where I can add individual sensor values of the weather tile (temp, humidity, lux), but how can I add it as a whole in the same way SmartTiles did? I'm sure I'm just missing something here.

iFrame Tiles - working sites

Kevin1 1 year ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 weeks ago 28

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.

iPad Kiosk app? Wake on front camera motion?

BigSlade 3 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Apple updated by Corey Kruse 3 weeks ago 13

I tried to search the forum for this answer, but could not find anything.  I was looking to create another smart panel for my house and have an iPad Gen 2 laying around and figured I would try to repurpose this.  Unfortunately I can't seem to find anything like Fully Kiosk that will wake up the screen on motion.  From the show me your tiles post I know there are a lot of people using iPads, so what are you using?  Or is the display just always on?  Thanks in advance.

tileset status inheritance

Ross H 4 weeks ago in Panels (dashboards) / Notifications & Sound updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 4 weeks ago 1

Is there any way to change the status/color of a tileset icon when any of it's member icons changes status?  For example, I would like to put a single tileset icon on the main screen for Windows and another for Doors and to have the status of those icons change when any of my windows or doors are open.  This would radically reduce screen clutter.

tinyCam Pro Android App web server: Stream RTSP and Wyze Cam to ActionTiles!

Geewiz 3 years ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Matt Pierson 1 month ago 144

After attempting to stream using Blue Iris (CPU on the server went through the roof), and not having any success using some of the other methods found here on the forum, I decided to give tinyCam a try.   


There was another post that made a passing reference to the tinyCam webserver, so I installed the app on my Nexus 9, setup webserver and am now able to stream one of my outside security cams to a media tile.




Here's the media setup panel...




The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to address any of the other three cameras.  There is supposedly a parameter to select a camera, but it's not working for me.   Here's the request parameters from the Tinycam webserver API...


Perhaps there are others using tinyCam Pro Webserver that might share their experiences...

FIXED: See Answer for details! What happened to jggdev.com Weather & News for Media Tiles?

949BFN 4 years ago in Media Tiles / Weather & Traffic updated by Ilias Konstantinidis 2 months ago 36

Any idea what happened to this website? The weather forecast url for AT worked very well, but it disappeared a few days ago.


The website displays a notice 

Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

Answer

Thanks to everyone for your validation of this migration of @jggdev's tools to ActionTiles's Cloud in Beta mode!!!

But even bigger, super, thanks to John (@jggdev) for his creative and innovative development of this, sharing it with ActionTiles's customers over the past several months, and now licensing it to Thingterfaces LP, the makers of ActionTiles.


We caught and fixed a couple bugs and noted your comments for possible future tweaks, and perhaps eventual new features.

While we might do a "bulk migration" of all the existing http://jggdev.com/* Media Objects in our database, you are now welcome and encouraged to self-migrate.


Please note that stability is not guaranteed. This is a "bonus feature" of ActionTiles. All usage is subject to ActionTiles's Terms of Service as well as any terms associated with the original scripts and/or JGG's website. ActionTiles takes no responsibility for the content provided. Please do not use copyright protected sources.


To migrate:

  1. Replace this portion of your Media Tile URLs: "http://jggdev.com/atiles/" with "https://mtg.actiontiles.com/"

To use:

  1. Instructions for the 3 different generators (weather, news, and calendar) and their optional parameters, currently still reside at: http://jggdev.com  ; but will be moved soon to an ActionTiles KB Article on http://support.actiontiles.com

  2. Please set the Still Image Media Tile "Refresh Rate" to greater than 900 seconds; preferably 3600 seconds or more (1 hour).

Example:

Please do not use the Beta URL anymore - unless invited. We may disable the beta server at anytime.

mjpg stream not showing

Roger S 2 months ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 months ago 3

Dear All,
Having failed to get tinycam pro to stream cctv to a mediatile, I thought I'd try iCatcher Console (www.icode.co.uk). This is a cctv software with webserver. I can successfully open a browser page to a static jpg image of a stream from the iCatcher webserver, as follows :-

http://192.168.xxx.xxx/image.jpg?feed={1D276D4B-D259-40A4-BE20-6BFB2D580B3C}&quality=50&uniq=1621166943410/image.jpg


however, using this link within a mediatile gives no result, just says invalid url.  I have tried this with & without passing the user/password parameters. Any ideas please?

Kore running through AT via Fully Kiosk Browser PLUS edition

gomezcarsonk 2 months ago updated 2 months 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 6 months ago updated by Sidney 2 months 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.

Does Nest Thermostat work with AT?  I got the doorbell camera to work, but I don't see the Thermostat.  I added the Thermostat to smartsthings and can see it there...but when I try and add the Thermostat by adding the devices from the location, the Thermostat doesn't show up.

Solution: Fire, Ring Doorbell, Fully, and Action Tiles

Willis 4 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Amazon Fire updated by DanNZ 2 months ago 188

I have seen a lot of questions related to the Ring Doorbell and Kindle Fire...I figured out a workable solution:

Sideload the Google Play Store onto the Fire (I used the instructions at https://www.howtogeek.com/232726/how-to-install-the-google-play-store-on-your-amazon-fire-tablet/ )

Use the Play Store to install the Ring Doorbell app

Use the Play Store to install AutomateIt


Setup 2 rules in AutomateIt:

Rule 1:  On notification from Ring, run the Ring App

Rule 2:  On notification from Ring, run the Fully App with a 1 minute delay


AutomateIt will notify you that it needs permission to monitor notifications.  Allow that permission.


Start Fully, ring your doorbell, see your front porch, cheer, wait another half minute or so, and Fully restarts, conduct victory lap...and profit.


If you have motion detection turned on for the doorbell, this will also show your porch if something trips the motion sensor.
