First post here, but have been actively using the community for almost everything I need to know to make my dashboard the way I want to use it. Recently I created a “All Lights” Dashboard that has all my smart lights and plugs on it. This allows me to click to a new dashboard and see what is currently on or off at a quick glance.
What I did was created a label over each room to know where each light is located. This got me to think…why not use the label tile as a complete on/off switch for all the switched in that room. So if I wanted to turn individual lights on/off I can, but if I wanted to turn everything on/off with a single tap, I can do it with the label.
I know, I can create virtual switch that can drive this action with rules, but I don’t want an icon on this label. I like the clean look of just the label there and nothing else. I did a search, but could not find anything to tell me how I can complete this. So if someone knows how to do what I want to do, or if this maybe a new feature added to Sharp Tools, please let me know.
How about create a Text Variable and use it as the label tile to display the area, and configure the tap action to open hyperlink with the special $.runRule syntax to execute the rule to turn all lights on or off based on the condition you need?
Thank you James for the reply. Not sure how to accomplish this. I don’t even know how to use the variable part of Sharp Tools. I may need to do some searching on here to determine how to do what you described.
