March 2021 Scene Intagration and breaking changes

Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 years ago in Announcements / Release Notes updated by JPicard 3 years ago 9

ActionTiles released a native integration with SmartThings Scenes in September 2020. However, the SmartThings API was not ready for production and therefore this feature was rolled back soon after. Only a small set of users were able to install it and even fewer still use it today.

The Scene integration has been redone using a different authentication method and will be available to all users in the coming days.

The existing Scene Tiles will no longer function after March 17, 2021. You will be able to replace them with the new version of Scene Tiles alter this week. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. We believe this is the best way to move forward and allow all users to use this feature.



Do we know how long we will be without a working method ?.  If I'm reading the notice correctly the existing method will cease to work on Wednesday,  but we don't have a date for the new method.

You are reading correctly, Jeff. The new method will be in place some time this week.

Great news! Thank you, Alex!

thanks looking forward to it.  I assume it will function in a similar way to the Beta version?

This feature in now live in Production. Make sure to reload the app to get the latest version.

The method is described here:


yes that’s already done and working 👍


When we call a scene, can you display a notification if the scene was completed successfully or not.

Just like they do when we call a scene in SmartThings (checkmark when everything works or display an error message).


Yes, make sure your App Preferences have this option enabled.

I was thinking that Show Confirmation Toast Notification option was needed for scenes (like when we select a device)
