I am looking to switch from my Vera Controller to the SmartThings Hub and I don’t understand how there is no iPad App available? We have an iPad mounted landscape in the wall and the SmartThings App doesn’t operate in landscape mode? Are their any other options to control the SmartThings Hub from the iPad?

@625alex Adding thermostat control has been great. Question though, what is the reasoning behind having a separate tile for Heat and Cool? Could you not add a feature where when you click on the Temperature Set Point you would bring up a menu, like you have with the mode tile, and you can select (Heat, Cool, Heat + Cool, Off) i think those are the ones I have with Nest which seam pretty standard for all thermostats. This way I would only need one tile for temperature set point and not two, or having to remove one tile depending on seasonal changes.

It grew with demand, and evolved with the SmartThings community. Driven by the overwhelming support of the community, I envisioned a product that would augment the SmartThings platform with an elegant and accessible user interface. The software that is released today is a product of the entire community, hundreds of users who gave it a chance, provided feedback and tested it in every way imaginable.
Thank you, SmartThings community!
Today, I launch SmartTiles.click to give ActiON Dashboard a home! This site will house supporting information and knowledge base. Most importantly, ActiON Dashboard can now be installed via a web service, so you never need t…
I agree, I think they are working on stabilization issues right now. WIth smartthings not working well, ipad landscape mode is the least of their issues.
