Other Updates & Bug Fixes

  • Details pending.


  • Added anonymous tracking to enable counting of concurrently active dashboards. These statistics are needed to assist in server capacity planning. — Data is strictly for SmartTiles’s internal use only.
  • If you delete the SmartTiles (Connect) parent SmartApp, all 5 child dashboards will be destroyed and cannot be recovered.
  • The ability to install SmartTiles may be disabled in the next 2 to 6 weeks. To ensure you have the ability to create dashboards, avoid full uninstallation or removal of “SmartTiles (Connect)”, even if you are not currently using it.
  • Development is underway of the SmartTiles V6 platform. No release date has been determined. Within 30 to 90 days after V6 is stable and released, we are required to disable all past version SmartTiles instances, including all Version 5.x.y.
  • User Support Policy is published at this link on SmartThings Community.

Single dashboard legacy versions (e.g., v5.4.2 or SmartTiles [0]) that were installed via website, will be updated automatically Feb 1, 2016. They will continue to appear as a standalone SmartApp instance separate from “SmartTiles (Connect)”. We encourage you to install “SmartTiles (Connect)”, once for each of your SmartThings Account “Locations”, even if you currently only need a single dashboard. The “Connect” SmartApp takes no resources until child dashboards are defined and active.
