Action tiles and grouped lights (please help)

Rachel 3 weeks ago in Panels (dashboards) updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 3 weeks ago 1

Hi everyone

Im currently working on a AT layout for a tablet. ive got everything working fine BUT ive got a slight issue with the reporting from i think Smarthings to Action Tile or it may me the Hue lights

When i add a single bulb it work fine lets say game bar 1 and game bar 2 (hue play bars) when i add them as a separate button in AT they work fine. HOWEVER...when i try and group them, the reporting doesnt work. Ive created a virtual switch called Virtual Games Room, ive tired from within the ST app under the smart lighting area and ive tried creating an automation rule but none of the groups want to work.. what am i doing wrong as this is the biggest area thats stopping me from finishing off the project

Hi Rachel, there are several ways of creating automations to control a group of lights with a single tile. One of them is described here:

Another great resource is the Trend Setter SmartApp.

ActionTiles is only able to see device states as seen by the SmartThings Platform. Please confirm whether your light grouping automation actually works in the SmartThings mobile app.
