Widget - Switches only?

Hello everyone, just switched to HE due to WebCore being dropped by ST. Loving HE so far, wish I would have made the switch sooner. I actually really like the simplicity of the app.

I like to have widgets on my phone's home screen to quickly push scene buttons, such as 'goodnight'. I created a virtual button for my 'scene' (which is actually in rule machine), but it seems you can only create widgets for switches. I know I can make a virtual switch for a scene, but it's not really proper and isn't on/off. Anyone have any other recommendations? Thank you!

If you like to tinker, look into KWGT Kustom Widget Maker. Have been using it for over a year and once you set it up, it's rock solid...

Not sure of the capabilities, haven't used Hubitat widgets yet on my phone. But one option aligning with what you mentioned would be a virtual switch with "Enable auto off" set - so on is like pushed, and it automatically resets to off after a set (short) time

Wow this looks pretty impressive/powerful. Going to take a while to learn but I'm in!

Your widgets look great, and I can understand most of them. Except these three - are you really rebooting your network gear so often that you need a widget on your phone? :joy:

No, but for lack of inspiration I couldn't think of 3 other tiles that I might actuate routinely from my home screen when I created the widget, and never went back to update the widget once I completed it. Everything in the house is automated :slight_smile:
