SmartTiles.click is live!

It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies… ActiON Dashboard was in the making for over 6 months. It started as a curiosity, just a toy. It grew with demand, and evolved with the SmartThings community. Driven by the overwhelming support of the community, I envisioned a product that would augment the SmartThings platform with an elegant and accessible user interface. The software that is released today is a product of the entire community, hundreds of users who gave it a chance, provided feedback and tested it in every way imaginable.

Thank you, SmartThings community!

Today, I launch SmartTiles.click to give ActiON Dashboard a home! This site will house supporting information and knowledge base. Most importantly, ActiON Dashboard can now be installed via a web service, so you never need to deal with any code again! Instances of ActiON Dashboard that are installed this way will be automatically updated with latest code. As usual, the source is available at GitHub.
