Timer display Tile - Capability "Timed Session"

rontalley 2 years ago in Things & Capabilities • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 1

I am looking for a way to have a countdown or count-up timer displayed in ActionTiles that is direct correlation with a webCoRE Piston or any other App that can send out timer or schedule information.


I have many Pistons that are on Timers and instead of going in the App and then opening up whatever app that has the timer, I would like to mount a Table on the Wall with ActionTiles and easily have access to various timers.


Example 1. If back door has not been opened for 5 hours Then Nag the family:

webCoRE sets an internal timer counting up to 5 Hours


Action Tile Displays

Potty Time

5:35pm


Example 2. If dryer stays on for 1hr 30minutes then shut off and Nag the family


Action Tile Displays

Dryer

30 minutes and counting upward to 1:30


Example 3. If Kitchen Lights are on and Motion is inactive Then wait 3 minutes Turn Off


Action Tile Displays

Kitchen Lights

-1:15 and counting down

Interesting idea, but this part of the request needs to be tremendously clarified.


... that is direct correlation with a webCoRE Piston or any other App that can send out timer or schedule information.


ActionTiles interacts with Things not with "SmartApps" like webCoRE or "any other App". Such Things could be Virtual (Simulated), but then they have to match an official SmartThings Capability.


There is, indeed, Capability "Timed Session" which, at first glance, appears to be applicable. I don't know of any existing Devices that implement it though. But a great start!
