Layered Tiles

With the removal of SHM support by SmartThings and current inability to access STHM it would be great with we were able to have layered tiles or put another way, a tile display based on a condition.  The old SHM tile used to display the current SHM status in a single tile.  The current work around using modes requires the use virtual switches to change the location mode and in turn sync the mode to change the STHM status.  When using the mode tile option in ActionTiles it just displayed the current mode in text format.  It would be great if we could have the ability to set conditions within the tiles so when a particular mode is active it will display a tile image and tile color.  Basically emulate what the SHM tile functionality/look used to be.

Hi Mike,

We may need to go down this route, but I'm hesitant to develop this due to reliability concerns. The original SHM tile worked flawlessly. Any emulation is very fragile.

Have you seen this article that describes how to use virtual switches to integrate STHM? This workaround allows to use icons and colors:
