Battery Tile Color Change

Derek C 10 months ago in Configuration & Settings updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 months ago 5

Is there a way to get a tile that shows battery level to change to a different color when the battery level is low?

Derek, when battery level is <= 25%, it's intent is set to Accent. When it's <= 5% the intent is set to Warn. The intents colors change according to Panel Theme.

Hi Alex,

When you say "Alarm" do you mean "Accent" - there doesn't seem to be an Intent called "Alarm" - so what I'm finding is that my flat batteries show as the same color as my motion sensors when active, which doesn't really make sense.

Yes, I meant to say Accent and Warn. I corrected the post above.

Ok.- so I have a theme where 'Accent' is green. This works great for door open/close, motion sensors, doors open etc. But For batteries I would want <25% to be some other color like yellow and then red for < 5%. 


There doesn't seem to be any way around this because the Theme is set on the Panel, but if I could set an override theme on a specific TileSet, I could create a different theme for my batteries where Accent is yellow and it would be great. Do you think this is doable?

At the moment, it's not possible to override these intents for battery tiles.

There's a popular request to allow for Tiles Intents to be assigned based on numeric values of sensors, which also applies to batteries. I made a note of your comments here.
