SmartSense Multi

Hello i have a question is there a way to have 2 tiles for the SmartSense Multi
one for the door and one for the temperature ?

Not easily, but yes. I’ve wanted to do something similar as well. The technical details are as follows:

Create a smartapp that subscribes to the multi
Create virtual devicetype that has the tile info you want to see
Create a child device that mimics the feature you want to get info from and send on event to that virtual tile.

A long way to get around the UI limitations in devices, but hopefully a more elegant solution will emerge.

Also, you can use the dashboard ui from the main app by installing “doors” and “temps” via the built in smartapps that will give you a view of the state of doors and a view of the state of temps. This would be outside the things view.
