Restart the app. When you select icon, app will download plugin. After that you can create layouts and add device. Nice and easy interface.
After creating room, drag and drop room name to room, and you will get all devices assigned to room placed there too
@milandjurovic71 I swear I did this a few times. Closed the running app in the Background (Android), but this time it worked! So thanks for fixing that for me
(Keeping SmartThings limping along since 2013.)
The button (little house icon in upper right) keept appearing and disappearing before I could click it. After opening and closing the app (Android) a few times, I was able to catch and click it, start making my map, and now the button seems to be persistent.
I’m seeing the new Home ICON on all of my Samsung Android devices, but not my iPad iOS yet.
On my Galaxy Tab it appeared, then disappeared the next time I opened the SmartThings app. Then after a few app restarts, it re-appeared. Anyway, checking it out now using the bigger Tablet screen.
Came up with three ways to build the floorplan.
Take a picture of your floor plan.
Arrange rooms and walls.
I’ll going to use the third option which seems to provide an intense configuration layout.
So, I’m guessing this new feature should be synced between devices since it’s showing on the Home page…(update, it does sync between devices)
Update: Of course it uses existing rooms configurations. Unfortunately, I don’t use the rooms that way since I use rooms for different device types instead of actual rooms, like all Cameras, all Motion Sensors, all Multipurpose Sensors, all Lights, etc…
While I was playing with it, it allows hiding devices in the room in the device layout.
I’m not sure I’m willing to change yet. I know it’s just a brain conditioning thing, but when I’ve done it so long one way, it’s hard to consider changing, but then I would think it’s better than the favorites list…
I really don’t like favourites pages. Especially when apps insist on populating them with a big tile reminding me that I can add favourites. I just feel that favourites pages should exist outside of the app to stop you having to open the app at all.
Definitely some over eager programmers because after setting it up, when I changed the view from All Devices to just Lighting, the Home GUI shows a ‘lite glow’ for the light when it’s On! (grin)
When I tap on a Device in the Home GUI, it brings up a popup with the device’s name and the switch button so I can turn the device On/Off. I would have rather it just toggled the device On/Off when tapping on it.
Tapping on a Room shows a mini status popup showing number of the devices in that room, average temperature of devices in the room, and the number of lights on in the room.
Similar to the ‘lite glow’, when selecting the Temperature view, the Home GUI shows a pusdo Heat Map ‘glow’…Very nice…
Similar thing. The Home ICON is available on my Samsung S22 (Android 13) and Samsung Tab S6 (Android 12), but it’s not on my Samsung Tab A7 Lite (Android 13). The only difference I’ve ever noticed about the Tab A7 Lite is that it runs Samsung’s ‘fragmented’ One UI Core instead of full One UI since Samsung’s Good Lock features are not available on it.
