Major Release!

Big exciting Feature! Custom Theme Builder (i.e., custom color selection per Panel and per Tile Intention - not “per Thing” or “per Tile” or “per Tileset”). Includes the ability to copy the built-in ActionTiles Themes or your own existing Themes as a starting point, export and import Themes as a JSON clip in plain-text (or a downloaded .json file) for sharing with fellow Customers.

A Theme is of a set of colors for the Panel background, Tileset Titles, and the elements of Tiles for each of the 4 Tile Intentions. Themes may contain more properties in future versions.

Changes

  • Custom Theme Builder.
  • Capability Voltage Tile.
  • Carbon Monoxide, Smoke Detector: treat “tested” state the same as “clear”.
  • PIN Code Pad appearance, Input (Tap) progress indicator, and improved performance.
  • Inter-panel fade animation changed to black (no white flash when using Panel Shortcut Tiles).
  • Other various performance improvements and bug fixes throughout the app.
    .

Please let us know what you think of Custom Theme Building and the other features and tweaks in this Release! :blush:

Theme Builder has an “export / import” (as plain-text JSON) function, so you can easily share your creative Themes with other folks. We’re sure to build a library of these somewhere :thinking:.

Excellent, looking forward to having a play with this over the weekend.

How do i import the theme?


#5

Importing the theme from copying from here isn’t working. The “add” button doesn’t become selectable:

So I manually entered and then copied it out and and pasting in worked. It seems that copying out of the forums and pasting into the editor doesn’t work. Must be something in the character sets used in the forum.


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #6

Oh… sorry about that @RonV42; and thanks for reporting the behavior!

Indeed, the forum seems to be converting standard plain double-quotes " to open/close quotes “”.

That’s actually easy for folks to prevent when sharing Themes, but hard to remember!

When sharing a Theme here, be sure to surround the theme-text with triple back quotes ``` on a line by itself, before and after; like this…
image

{
  "accent-tile-background-color" : "white",
  "info-tile-background-color" : "#3675C4"
}

I have fixed the original post.

(The Viking AKA "Holy Crap You're a Giant!") #8

@tgauchat I have an audio device integration for a 6 zone amp using @redloro’s great device handler/smartapp for the Russound multi-zone amplifiers.

Before I manually create virtual switches to control input sources for each of six zones and then tie them into WebCoRE, is there a way for ActionTiles to set a source on a device from a tile? Example: Tap the switch for the Living Room Speakers zone, get options to select source.

The DTH exposes the sources and WebCoRE can see them, but I don’t need automation with this so much as I want to get visual confirmation of zone selections.

We’re still keeping this “low-key”, so a simple text note here for now:

If you have a Fire Tablet, please visit Home/Library/Cart (ie, the Amazon Appstore) and search for “SmartThings”. Using that search term is critical, as we are building up Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

No - It isn’t a Christmas miracle (no Samsung SmartThings apps still), but that search should reveal - wait for it - legendary ActionTiles! Please install it and add a positive Customer Review (about the ActionTiles web-app y’all know and love) to help get it to move to the top of the results.

This App is optional (as other FireOS compatible browsers still work fine… Silk, Firefox, Fully, side-loaded Chrome…), but using published Appstore format App should really help our growth and lay a foundation for more features.

Kiosk “PLUS” Licenses (for certain optional premium features) will be slightly less in price than Fully PLUS. Details will follow. We have to build an add-on License item (in progress).


BTW: We’re also in Play Store as standard Android version. A little harder to find. Your searches and Ratings + Reviews are super valuable there, please. Review ActionTiles itself (not just this Android Webview Kiosk “wrapper”.

In the Play Store, searching for “SmartThings” alone might not find it, but “SmartThings dashboard”, or “ActionTiles” or … be creative and see what comes up, please.


Fire Tablet Setup Script for ActionTiles [BETA UPDATE 12-4-18]
(Tony Fleisher) #12

@tgauchat glad to see an app for this.
Any plans for the app to support multiple tabs or similar? (i use tabs in Fully to allow switching between multiple panels)


(Alwas) #13

When do you think it will be possible to change a tile colour? Or has it happened already?


(Ron Talley) #14

I can say that ActionTiles is freaking awesome and more than worth the buy in price. I have 10 Tablets running it throughout the house and it really took my Home Automation to another level.

I run Fully Kiosk along with DAKboard. Pictures display as a screensaver along with information such as news feeds, weather and calendar alerts. When I walk up to a Tablet, ActionTiles pops on in all its glory.

I sometimes feel like I’m rich even though I’m about as poor as most!


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #15

:blush: … Alex and I cannot thank-you enough for the compliments, Ron! We’re blown away when our Customers are blown away.

Our new Play Store and Amazon Appstore Apps are built on the Fully engine, so they have the “wake on tablet camera motion detection” and “screensaver URL” options (PLUS upgrade licenses will be required - at a slightly lower price than Fully charges).


You probably have left a Review / Recommendation somewhere? But just in case:

We need 5-Star Ratings / Reviews / Recommendations on Facebook, Play Store, and Amazon Appstore.

The value of sincere and enticing endorsements is priceless! Just a rating isn’t as valuable as a short paragraph.

Thank-you tremendously,
Happy New Year!
…Terry.

Individual Tile customization is still limited to 4 Intentions (per the applied Theme).

Our Release Notes (including history) can be found here: https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12-actiontiles-forum/categories/51-release-notes/topics


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #17

The ActionTiles Kiosk App offers multiple open-tabs as per-tablet PLUS feature (same implementation as Fully).

Like Fully, swipe from the left edge of screen for the Kiosk Settings pages.

Enable pop-ups, and optionally enable the Address Bar to see all the tabs … but then you lose “full-immersive-screen”.


(Rob) #18

As I have had a bit of free time on my hands recently :grin: I have integrated Domoticz (running on a pi) with Smartthings hub using @dudz40 fantastic integration. I get temps coming through from my Oregon thermometers and can control my Somfy blinds just fine from within the smartthings interface. But if I create an ActionTile for the blinds the tile behaves bit strangely. You have to press the tile more than once for it to operate, it shows up as a switch (displays open close not up and down) and appears to have a dimmer slider. Of course the device is using the domoticzBlinds CDH and I know ActionTiles can only deal with some devices.
Has anyone else attempted this before and have a solution? I have fiddled about with creating a group in Domoticz and pushing that into smarthings as a simple on off switch but wondered if someone has a better suggestion?
Thanks in advance!

I had recently purchased actiontiles using the 18.12% off and was playing around with the kiosk features such as auto turning on with movement using the camera. It had in the background saying a kiosk plus license was needed but I couldn’t find where to buy it. Tonight I saw an update was available so I installed and now that functionality is gone. How do I get it back and how do I get the kiosk plus license?


(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #21

Hi Drew… Unfortunately, we were not able to come up with licensing scheme for Kiosk-PLUS Features that wasn’t very convoluted, confusing, and probably frustrating to customers who current expect all available features for the current license price. Maybe someday we’ll figure out how to organize this.

But no worries… You can get all the Kiosk-PLUS features by downloading, configuring, and licensing the Fully Kiosk Browser that is very popular with ActionTiles Customers.

  • If you use an Amazon FireOS tablet, please find the special “FireOS” version in the download area of https://fully-kosk.com

  • If you use a regular Android device, you can use the Fully Kiosk available in the Play Store.


Sorry about the confusion - but trust us, it’s better this way. The diversion would have driven us nutzo and hurt customer service.
