Virtual Switch to control child switch tile buttons?

After lots of searching I’m still trying to find a way of setting up a virtual switch to control one child switch tile buttons inside a device?

I’ve got a TV device with multiple tiles inside for power, mute, HDMI etc. I want to control each of those buttons from a virtual switch thing that can be controlled remotely by IFTTT which I use with Google Home Assistant (voice commands).

Any ideas, pointers?


Leeo, a basic b*****s device type

Convert your Device Handler into a new Composite Device Handler (i.e. Parent/Child DH’s.) This will allow each child device to be “seen” by all other SmartApps, including Amazon Echo, Google Home, IFTT, ActionTiles, etc…

Brilliant this new composite device handler (parent / children) might just do what I am after. I’ll give a try later on.
