We are not planning on interfacing directly to various non-SmartThings platforms (be it Plex, Wink, Vera, Home Assistant, ...) at this time.


If someone develops a conforming "Media Controller" Device Type Handler for Plex for SmartThings, then ActionTiles's Media Control Tile will interface with it.

I was able to do it a couple different ways... Once I document it, I will post instructions.

please share how you did this! I've been trying to figure out ways to incorporate Tautulli into my dash. This seems like a better approach. Thanks in advance!

This is actually using Tautulli at the moment but I am planning on building out full support just to Plex.  Will post here again once I start beta testing.

Fantastic start. I love my Plex so any integration to Actiontiles would be much appreciated.

Hey Jon, just thought Id check to see where you are in the project? I love the idea but havent seen any updates and starting to worry this has died?

Where did you leave off on this project, Jon? I'd love to get this working on my setup.

This had much development love this but no news on how its done :(

Jon, will you be posting the instructions to get PLEX as a tile on the app?   i love what you did and I'm a huge fan of PLEX

I would love this for JRivers Media Center too.

Cool reference, KamHouse...

ActionTiles only works with official, published, standard Device "Capabilities", so I pulled the list from the link. Switch and Music Player are supported, so ... give it a try? The extra Commands are not available in ActionTiles.

capability "Switch"
capability "musicPlayer"

command "scanNewClients"
command "setPlaybackIcon", ["string"]
command "setPlaybackTitle", ["string"]
command "setVolumeLevel", ["number"]

I have done this by using trakt.tv widgets URL to display the banner of newly added items to my Plex server. Adding that URL to ActionTiles Media Tile as a GIF URL. Here is the trak.tv info: https://blog.trakt.tv/widgets-45fd35dba354
