A significant new feature of ActionTiles is that Things from multiple Locations can be added to the same Panel(s) — mix and match — even if they are Locations in separate SmartThings Accounts!
This is currently something that is essentially “impossible” in SmartThings own App, and in Alexa, and other SmartApps.
We hope that Customers with multiple Hubs/Locations find this tremendously valuable.
And, well… such Customers have made an investment in multiple Hubs ($80+ each) and usually that means extra Thing hardware too. That’s a bit of the logic behind our thinking: ActionTiles’s value to the Customer is somewhat proportionate (or maybe extra-proportionate) to the complexity of a Customer’s environment and the budget they are allocating to their smart home(s).
We’ll always be looking for ways to make ActionTiles an affordable, great, but business sustainable, value.
Per Location pricing is the Introductory license model. There may be different options in the future. Needed to start with something that’s simple and a good deal for the majority of households in our market.
