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

I thought it might makes sense to put this stuff somewhere without needing to ask a question each time in this forum :slight_smile:

edit, this would be a case for in the wiki :slight_smile:
if needed i’ll be happy to help you populate it

thanks again

Okay, but to make it more easy for people, i have created a Wiki on this topic, post 4:
[APP][Pro] Advanced Virtual Device (Device Capabilities App) with Unique Text Status Indicator - Apps - Homey Community Forum

And for a overview page, you might also look at the original fontawesome pages:
Font Awesome - there is plenty of overview and search capabilities over there.

Hi @Arie_J_Godschalk

I have a laptop which sends user data and some other Windows variables with Curl to Homey. I have a virtual Laptop device with a few sensors. These sensors get populated based on the variables it receives from the actual laptop. One received variable is the name of the user that’s logged in. The icon for this sensor shows a person.svg all the time. Is it possible to change the sensor icon when the value changes. For instance to an icon which a X?

And do I understand correctly that the max of different icons that can be used for all devices together is 80? Is that because of memory usage?

Hey Dennis,

No, icons cannot be changed except for within the settings.

The only way you could do this, is to remove the capability and add another capability with another icon.
Technicly possible, but this would really be way to heavy for Homey to do, and it would mess up flows that are build on default cards, etc.

No, for devices/AVDs, each AVD gets it’s own (custom) icon.
You can have as many as possible.

But, yeah, currently, for fields (capabilitities) on the Sensor or buttons tabs, there are 80 “slots” with icons you can pick from and that you can customize.

It’s because of the hugh app.json, because there are a lott of posibile capabilities for each posible icon.

Hi @Arie_J_Godschalk

Thank you for clearing that up!
