[BETA] Homey Custom Tiles

I’m unsure if I have done something wrong or there is a limitation with the Homey Image Tile? I have tested the API’s using a gauge and they work and am trying to display a Homey Insight chart. I have set up a camera (advanced virtual device) using Device Capabilities app. When I click on the camera (device) it shows the insights image in Homey. I use the device url in Homey Image Tile but no luck - is blank. Can Homey Image Tile display an image from the advanced virtual device?

If you are referring to the Insights Graphs app from the Homey community, I believe displaying the image directly from the Insights Graphs apps would be better in this case. I wrote up some instructions in the original post:

In theory, if the Advanced Virtual Device exposes the Insights Graph image like a camera, you should be able to use it with the Homey Image Viewer custom tile… I would need more information on how you have things configured and how the AVD device is exposing the image though… still, the alternative direct approach linked above is more streamlined

Thanks very much Josh. It’s so simple after exploring a variety of methods. Really appreciated.

Updated the code for flows to also get advanced flows:

<script type="application/json" id="tile-settings">
      "schema": "0.1.0",
      "settings": [
        {"name": "token", "label": "Token", "type": "STRING"},
        {"name": "homeyCloudId", "label": "Homey Cloud ID", "type": "STRING"},
          "name": "isFavoritesOnly",
          "label": "Only Show Favorites",
          "type": "BOOLEAN",
          "default": false
      "name": "Homey Flows"

Thanks for sharing! I’ll have to give it a try. :star_struck:

From a quick glance, one thing I noticed is that the executeFlow() always calls the /advancedflow path. Does that actually work for the regular flows too? Otherwise it would likely need some logic to determine what type of flow was clicked and which type it needs to execute so executing the regular flows would work too. :slight_smile:

To be honest, I didn´t try to execute any regular flows… I don´t have any at the moment to try directly. I will look in to it though. Also, if you do it before me, feel free to edit the code and update! (I´m very new to this and self learned so it might not be perfect)
