Set Tile active state or color based on threshold(s) of numeric value

Shawn 1 year ago in Colors Icons Fonts Themes • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 days ago 13 2 duplicates

Any consideration in the future to illuminating the tile(s) based on real time or cumulative energy would be terrific. For example, I use the Aeon Energy Monitor for my well pump system to know when the below ground pump is running or not. When it is not running, the real time energy is 0 watts. When it is running it is 2540 watts.


If the respective panel had a parameter to set that would illuminate the panel when the real time energy is greater than 2000w, then I would know at a glance the pump is running. I think others may find usefulness in having the panel(s) illuminate for various reasons.



AT has been rock solid here, thanks for an amazing product!

This is a great idea!


We had similar requests for other sensors, such as Temperature.

Yup... This pretty much applies to any "numeric value" Tile; the ability to set color(s) according to value ranges. It even might apply to enumerated values (like a Garage Door has: open, closed, opening, closing).

A while back I placed a similar request for solar, green when I'm feeding back to grid, red when I'm pulling from grid... seems this feature could be used across many different tiles.

I think this is a great idea and would apply to many sorts of "value Tiles".


For example, we just received a request to support "UV (ultra-violet) Index" (from Bloomsky weather station device). Certain value(s) ought to trigger the Tile to change color. http://support.actiontiles.com/topics/1521-uv-rating/

I just found this resource for a relative humidity scale and did my own color values for a custom DTE for humidity - would be cool to implement this, too...

This would make the panel 5 times more useful. The ideal would be to be able to choose the (a) default color of the tile in its  "normal" state and the color when in "abnormal" state.

Also, (and sorry for going off topic) will it eventually be possible to use tiles of different heights in the same row? It seems that currently we can only use tiles of the same height in a horizontal line.  

Please check for "Layout" Topics (and add a new one if none is found) for the "off-topic" portion of your comment... Thanks!!!

p0lar: There's no reason or value to asking for "any news"... If there is "any news" then the Topic would contain such news.


Please reference: When are Feature Ideas in the Forum going to be implemented?  Thank-you.

Hi Terry,

It seems that this question has been going on for over a year so I'm wondering how close you are to making it a reality.

Thanks
