I have published the
Virtual Switches Mc-(SOS) driver on my shared channel.
Installed on your hub and perform search nearby.
A virtual switches main device will appear
Enter the device and make a driver change to
Virtual Switches Mc. All your virtual devices will move to that new main. Delete the
Virtual Switches Mc-(SOS) driver from your hub
I’m going to leave this driver in the channel in case it happens to more users
Please, tell me if this worked for you

It appears that latest ST app update did remove the option to select ENABLE or DISABLE in multi-switches when selected in THAN for automations.
Could you confirm this change? Because this kills your “mirror” solution.
** device uses your multi-switch driver.
In Android app working fine

@nayelyz, @niquini … opening this discussion for this issue: App iOS version 1.6.89 issue
@Mariano_Colmenarejo another user is asking if its possible to add assignable action to virtual dashboard driver, when switch is on to do something, like for buttons. It would be only single action, not 3.
To my knowledge, that is available for buttons only, unless you know the way of adding that without loosing current capabilities. This way, he would like to cut down on number of routines.

I thought I read that button actions counted as routines. I might be wrong but I see them in my automations list.
Might still be a better user experience, though.
**New version of Virtual Switches Mc, which is renamed
Aplicaciones Virtuales Mc:
At the request of users and reading in several posts about the need to store variables resulting from automations and admit or pass data from third parties, such as sharpTools, webcore… I have added:
Virtual device with 5 free text fields, with presentation for automation conditions and actions
Virtual device with 5 number fields, with presentation for automation conditions and actions
The utility can be several:
Replace 5 virtual devices, which are used as intermediate steps of automations, for only 1
Pass values of variables resulting from another comparison dynamically
Pass text data or values that can be read by other third-party applications.
I do not use webcore or other similar apps, others can tell if it works for them and what for
Update will be done automatically and does not affect to devices created by previous version

Does this allow for mirroring of color/temp as well?
No, it only sends on-off values

Could switch icon be added to the icon list and would it be possible to see from dashboard which switch is active? I use maximum five switches and it’d be useful to see which is active. This way I could use only one virtual device to run my change my modes and to see which mode is on.
What type of device do you mean, switchboard?
That list of icons is what the app offers for the smartplug category.
I chose that category because it is the one that offers the most icons to change.
We would have to ask smartthings
@nayelyz to offer the complete list of icons to change, regardless of the category chosen in the profile
I could make a multiple mosaic profile for the 5 switch switchBoard.
Doing it for the others would imply adding 4 more profiles

Yes, just basic switchboard, on/off icon. But more important is the dashboard. It’d be really helpful to see which is on. Now it just says any switch is on.
I’ll look at it to see if it doesn’t involve adding a lot of code

I’ll make a report to see if the info of the available icons to change can be added in the docs but that will depend on the review.
So far, the only related info I’ve seen published is the one in the post below, so, not all categories have the option to change the icon:
Hey there everyone!
@nayelyz thank you for the tag!
It appears to me that the available options displayed are based on the OCF Type being used by the device as @milandjurovic71 mentioned. However, I want to get this information confirmed to be one-hundred percent sure so I have escalated this to hopefully provide additional insight to you all.
Changing icons is currently possible for contact,multi-sensors, lighting devices, and SmartTags.
Note: Some device types such as door locks and motion sensors, currently do not have the option to change icons.
I also wanted to provide the numerical count for the options available to be selected for Icon changes.
Switches/lights - Displays 8 options to select.
Outlets - Displays 16 options to select.
Contact Sensors - Displays 5 options to sele…
I have modified the driver so that the
SwitchBoard, 2 to 5 switches, to show the switch or switches that are On in the status. (S1:On S3:On…)
If all are off then show
“All Switch Off”
If all are on then show
“All Switch On”
It only shows in the mosaic the Switches that are On, those that are Off are omitted. In this way, combine all the combinations in a simple mosaic. (S1:On S3:On S4:On S5:On)

Is it possible to add color/dim level mirroring? That is my primary use case. I would think a very common need as well.
It can’t be done, or I don’t know how to do it.
You can’t pass values to other devices directly, and with automations you can only do that with attributes that have fixed options, like on and off.
When it can be values between 0% and 100%, like level, it is impossible with current automations. Or make 100 automations.
With the Rules API I figure it can be done, but I have no idea about that
