Request: Change Tile Color Based on Reported Temperature

Hi do you think is possible to have a option to title change the color by the temperature?
Just an e.g. below 65F change to blue/ 65-72 green/over 72 red

Thanks for the suggestion, Emerson!

I’ll leave the topic open to community feedback. We use community feedback as a key component of how we prioritize what we work on, so the more people that show interest in a topic, the more likely it is to get prioritized. :grinning:

Could be changed by the Humidity too or other variables. :grinning:

Love this idea! Much like battery tiles that can color code based on level, do the same for temp and humidity. :+1:

Temperature, yes! Humidity, yes! How about also: Lux?

Would changing color based on Lux primarily be for a Hero Attribute tile?

Yes, that’s exactly how I would envision it, changing color when configured as a Hero Attribute tile. However, now that I think about this idea more I’m not sure what the color scale should be. That is, what color Lux 0 would be versus Lux 10,000. Perhaps something like this?

Is it possible to set color of a tile by value?

Hi @Tomas_Smedberg, you can currently specify tile color based on the defined active/inactive state, ex: on/off, but not custom value. Can you please provide more details for the use cases so we understand the needs better? It’d also help others who may be interested to comment their needs/feedback as well. :grinning:

Hi @Tomas_Smedberg I’ve merged your topic in with a similar request. As James noted, it would be helpful if you could provide more details on your use case.

It seems like the primary use cases we’ve seen so far are around changing tile color based on Temperature and Humidity values, though there has some been interest in other attributes (eg. Lux) for use in Hero Attribute tiles.

I was thinking of doing a visual tile for our indoor CO2 levels. Something like green, orange, red .
Could also be for visualizing when temps get to hot/cold or something like that as you mention

Hi Tom I know the topic here is other, but may I ask you what kind of CO2 sensor do you have?
