Best Capability for a number

bscuderi 11 months ago • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 11 months ago 2

I have a custom device handler for my device that uses the following custom attribute..

 

attribute "RPM", "number"


This just displays as a tile in my device handler that shows the current RPM value of my pool pump for example 3,450 RPM.

I would like to get this into action tiles on my display in a way that best presents that information. My question is what device capability, that action tiles supports, should I change this to in order to best present my information? I'm not dead set on using my custom attribute and do not mind if it's something strange or nonsensical as I just want it to display right on action tiles. I tried power use and temperature and some others but then it displays on a tile that says watts or degrees F which looks funny.

thanks for your help bud I found changing the device to device.carbonDioxide was the golden ticket for displaying the number value as I had hoped!
