[APP][Pro] Advanced Virtual Device (Device Capabilities App) with Unique Text Status Indicator

This one?

You need to select the Status indicator in the Homey Mobile app.
Goto device properties on your phone, and select the status indicator.


Ok thank you, it works wonderfully!

Here’s a flow + devices you might like, to import!

A very stable, nearly finished version!

Templates can be order, filtered and made favorite.

You can order by Likes, Favorite and creation (date/number).
These templates are accessible from AVD creation, AVD repair and App Settings for Flows:

New, also in live:
In AVD (and The Flow Export), when you export, there will appear a new button:

When you press the Goto Topic button, there will be a pre-typed message in your clipboard, and you will be send to the bottom of the topic-site, so scroll down a bit and there is your reply button.

Press it, paste your clipboard, alter the header, description and picture and you’re readyto: Post that Flow!


Now in Test:
A when Status text/number changed flow card.

And a bit of a messed up App Templates, i was working on that…


Pff, finally got all views on all phones and devices the same and working correct.

Old iPhone settings are also working, only have some issues with the old ios Create Device.
Ill work on it later.

Hi Arie,

DC v2.6.39-test

I just imported this flow

But somehow, the variables don’t get presented as variable everywhere, but their ID is shown instead. The variables were created fine by your script

Here’s a Var ID check, it returns a just created variable, used in the flow

Okay, ill fix this.

Because looking at you picture, it show that the reference ends with ]] but the dont open with [[, so somewhere i have made a replacement error.

Somehow the new device stays unaltered when importing this device:

App v2.6.39-test

Restarted the app, tried several times, created a new AVD before every import.

I also tried with an edited AVD device myself, the new AVD does not get altered after exporting and importing the TEF and use a new AVD as clone

Resolved in nieuw test version: 2.6.40

This is not an general issue ( for me, everything works fine).
Please send me a diag after App restart and lets continue in in PM.

Hi Peter,

Is there any way to get rid of that leading 0? Show if I want to show the time in the tile, it will only show the time like: 22:15
Instead of: 0 22:15

In the Web App, yes you can replace it with a Dash (-) by using the Set Status Card with Number and leave number empty.
But it will then show nothing in the Mobile App.

Athom (might) be working on it, i have had contact about the difference in Web en Mobile App en asked that, since the need to straigten the difference out, the nicest thing for users would be that units wil be displayed with an empty value if the value is empty.

And it could be done, because there normally are no apps that leave the capability value empty. Athom didn’t even know about the difference between Mobile and Web when a device capability value is empty.

But we will have to wait and see.
As a developer, i cannot do anything about how the numbers + units is displayed. Only Athom has the ring of Power for that! :wink:


Ok, Arie. Thanks again?

Hello @Arie_J_Godschalk ,

Thank you again for your exceptional work. I wanted to know if in the area surrounded by my previous message it is possible to put only text without a number. I would like to indicate the states of my vacuum cleaner for example “docking”, “charging” etc…

Thank you very much!

Edit: I just saw that Dennis had the same question I believe.

I hope it will be, lets see what Athom makes of it.

This is A Petition!

For Everyone who wants a Text Status Indicator (as Device Tile) without a zero or dash in front of it, HIT the Like button of this post/message!
