While I was away on holidays my TP-link devices stopped communicating with smartthings. When I got home I tried to get them to work and couldn't so I re-logged in to Kasa (TP-link) through smartthings. I was able to add the switches and plug back into smartthings but needed to delete the old plugs/switches. In doing this, I lost all of the automations that included these devices and had to delete and re-add all of them to my actiontiles panels. Was there an easier way to get them working in smartthings and actiontiles? Has anyone else had issues with devices losing connectivity with smartthings?
Hi, My Actiontile setup has been on Brians video recently and I made a reply on his YouTube channel but I thought it could be good to post my setup here as well. My setup is as follow: Hardware: Lenovo TAB4 10 inch Android tablet Software: Fully Kiosk Browser, DAKboard and Actiontiles The Fully kiosk browser is the app that ties DAKboard and Actiontiles together, it is a highly capable app but I only use it to be able to have a screensaver mode where DAKboard can be on display. Dakboard is a customizable display for photos, calendar, news, weather and more, I use it for a our common calendar that me and girlfriend have setup in Google Calendar. Every time we want to put something up on the common calendar (DAKboard) we simply assign the calendar entry to our common calendar instead of our personal calendar. Beside our common calendar there is also a five day weather forecast on display. You can have much more shown but I think these two are the ones that for us makes most sense to have on at all the time. Lastly Actiontiles that brings our entire smart home together, it is basic and functional. I tried to add some weather live cameras and other stuff but in the end I opted for a clean and symmetrical layout. If you notice in my Actiontile set up, the icons for lights have different meaning, if the light bulb is pointing downward the light is in the ceiling and if the light bulb is upright it is a light that´s floor standing or on a desk. Philips Hue Light strips under the bed are shown as a strip and the blinds in the bedroom are arrows pointing upwards or downwards. If the windows is closed there is on type of icon and if the window is open there is another icon and color. My two large tiles in the center is two scenes, one for turning all the lights off (LAMPOR AV) and one too turn the lights on (LAMPOR PÅ) One tip that I shared on AYL Youtube channel is as follows: ""A tip for making it easier to design your ActionTile is to have two browser windows open at the same time you configure your ActionTile layout. One browser window arranging the tiles and one browser window, scaled to the appropriate tablet size, to see the result.""

Just thought i'd share my ActionTiles setup, only had ActionTiles for 2 days so not sure I'll keep the current setup or change it. I'm using a cheap fire tablet, web browser called Fully Kiosk Browser (google play store) to display the First Screen you see. When the screen times out it goes to a webpage that i setup on a site called DakBoard The DakBoard pics can be set to change every couple of minutes, you can setup fully kiosk browser so that when it sees motion it goes to the main page which i have setup as my ActionTiles page. When it stop's seeing motion it go's back to the Dakboard page. Here are the pics. The Good Morning button runs a smartthings routine that turns on the coffee pot (wife's got to have her coffee), turns on the kitchen lights, turns on the TV (using harmony hub for that and the Logitech harmony connect smartapp to connect it to smartthings), sets the smartthings smart home monitor to Armed/Home, opens certain blinds in the house, unlock the front door, ect.. Oh and i also have it set to turn off the screen when its dark and turn on the screen when its light. (i got that tip from FrankE, Thanks frank). Oh and i used a program called tasker (google play store) to look for a push notification from stamrtthings app if the smart home monitor is in alarm mode to lock the tablet. It requires a pin code to unlock it after that. This keeps someone that might have entered the house from using the pad to unlock doors, ect...
