I have a sensors that has both Temperature and Motion (Ecobee Remote Sensor). On the Things screen in the long list of devices, I really want to be able to show both the motion status and the temperature.
I’m open to any method that will work. I’d prefer to have the color represent the motion status and of course a text label for the temperature. But I’d also be open to an icon in the left column for motion and the temperature on the right.
So far I haven’t been able to find a workaround that will let me pull this off though.

SmartThings makes this frustratingly “impossible”.
I quote that, because, well, folks here in the Community have surprised me before and come up with extremely creative ways to accomplish stuff.
I think a Tile can only base it’s color on very simple attributes (i.e., a specific value or the closest value in a range). Thus, if the Value of this Thing has to be Temperature, then there’s no way (that I can think of) to use the color: to represent Motion.
Or … well… the only crazy idea that comes to mind is if you added an artificial attribute such that “0 to 100” = temperature, no motion, and “101 to 200” = (temperature+100), with motion. The two ranges = two different colors.
