Fix in BETA

Tile for Sound Pressure Capability

Joel Waxman 6 years ago in Things & Capabilities updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 6 years ago 20

SmartThings recognizes sound pressure (loudness, SPL) devices, such as the Netatmo Weather. It has an indoor sound level meter. I would like a Tile for that.

Discuss & Vote

Please send me the location id + device id for this Netatmo Weather. I will see if I can do this for this release.

This feature request is best handled as part of the Beta program.


If it is standard, why isn't it available in the Panel setup? Here it is in the device.

That message was to Alex.  😉

Joel:  Just to clarify...

I was saying that it is already a SmartThings "standard Capability" which is the first requirement for us to consider adding it to ActionTiles as a Tile type. There are a lot of Device Types with ad hoc / custom Attributes and Commands, and we really, really, hesitate to go down that road. Not an issue in the case of SPL.

Alex where do I find the device ID, the location ID is Avalon Road

OK I see all my other weather station info on my ActionTiles Panel just the sound is missing. Understand now.I hope you can figure it out.

This capability is not implemented as a Tile, yet. There's a couple of exotic capabilities that we didn't do.

Is there a chance it will be done? Or just something for future? Thanks.

Could you give me a sense of value range for your sensor? Any decimals?

What's the unit of measure?


Sound meter

Ranges from:

35 dB to 120 dB

I haven't seen decimal points, but all their other sensors do have it.


Works Perfectly. Thank you. How about adding the Outdoor Air quality measured in PM 101 (USG) , DEW Point, and Feels like,  not sure if it is part of SmartThings covered things?

Thanks for testing!

I don't believe ST supports the other capabilities. We don't have the framework to support arbitrary device attributes, but we are brainstorming about possible solutions.
