How to use new SmartThings Scenes with ActionTiles

At the time of writing, ActionTiles is only compatible with Routines in SmartThings Classic mobile app.

We will offer direct integration with Scenes as soon as it becomes available.

Meanwhile, this easy workaround allows SmartThings Scenes to integrate with ActionTiles.

Step 2) Create the following Automation using the New SmartThings Mobile App.

Step 3) Authorize the Virtual Switch with ActionTiles. Then, add a Tile, it could look something like this:


3.1) Optionally, customize the Tile

  • Select custom icon
  • Set Tile Intention to Accent for both ON and OFF
  • Change header
  • Hide footer
  • Assign PIN Code

Then, the Tile could look something like this:

Congratulations! You have successfully set up a Tile that activates a SmartThings Scene. This is only a temporary workaround until the official integration is available.
