Proper WebCore presence status integration

Hey all! 

I was kinda upset that ST doesn't provide a way to capture the proper presence status that could be displayed in ActionTiles so being a developer I've created my own web service that shows a real status vs just "Present" or "Not Present."

You simply setup a new piston in WebCoRE that passes the current location to a small web service which takes the status and dynamically creates a Tile that you can display by using the Media Image Tile.

Here's an example of how it looks on an ActionTiles Panel:

Some features:

  • You can upload a pic for the icon or use a system one.
  • You can choose any background color to match your existing dashboard.
  • You can set any tile size to match your existing tiles.
  • Status is updated as fast as you need it. 

I'm currently adding the final touches but would love to open this up to the community!


That's awesome!  WebCoRE presence (android) hasn't been working well for me though.  Let us know when we can try it out.


WebCoRE has been dicey for me too lately so not sure if it's a global issue or not.

Should have something for you to test in the next few days..

Checking on this. Can you share your piston and code?  ST presence is less than adequate
