  • User Support Policy now published on SmartThings Community.
  • We appreciate donations of thanks and encouragement which help enable us to provide ongoing user support and continue development of SmartTiles.

The new multi-dashboard parent SmartApp SmartTiles (Connect) can only be installed via http://SmartTiles.click/install
