Recipe riddle: which device to use to get the recipe to work?
Andy I'm trying to create a recipe including shortcuts such that I can rename it.
It sounds easy - any advice? Which device?
Right now I have a recipe set up perfectly, except that I cannot change its name. (It is a lifx bulb, and the name change doesn't change the name that appears on the remote.)
- Dummy Accessory
- Create a custom recipe
These don't allow shortcuts.
I've tried a Tuner, deleted all actions and set the slider to show only the Shortcuts - which works on the App, but the remote runs the recipe without showing the Shortcuts.
What can I do? Any advice?
By the way, here's the three part solution that I found. Maybe this will be helpful to someone else.
1- Device set up for Lifx light. (Recipe name cannot be changed - is always LIGHT)
2. Random device added. I used a Tuner. Deleted everything from the launch recipe except Use Controls (for the Tuner). Then created the various shortcuts I wanted, for Lifx and for other odds and ends that I wanted.
3. Created a custom recipe. Used the icon of choice. Named the recipe as desired. Then used the controls from #2. Named #2 a name that I liked as the header for the Shortcuts pages. (Couldn't use the controls from Lifx because then the header on the Shortcuts pages would have read LIGHT.)Reply
