Button Configuration[edit]

This screen allows you to customise the visual look of your button and also what devices it displays on, which allows you to tailor Home Remote for each device you run it on.

Alpha[edit]

The default alpha of a button is 10%, but you can adjust to any level from this slider. For fine slider control, tap either side of the drag handle to move it in increments of 1%.


Color[edit]

The color you select here will be the color of the button on the Today Screen, or on any of the other version of the app use; Apple TV, Apple Watch or Pebble Time - The OS X version of Home Remote - Activator does not display button colors. The color will be changed by the amount of alpha you have selected. If a button is deemed too light to display white text, then the text color will change to black automatically.


3D Touch Action[edit]

If your device supports 3D touch, and the action is not a spacer, then you will be able to turn on 3D Touch for it. iOS allows you have a maximum of 4 actions available with 3D Touch. They can be activated by 3D Touching on the Home Remote app icon on the iOS home screen and selecting the desired action. The iOS app will open and the action will be executed, after which time the app can be closed.


Show on Today Screen[edit]

This option defines whether the action you are applying it to will appear on the Today Screen. This is useful if you have actions that you only want to be triggered by a Beacon Attribute, a Geofence Attribute, Scheduled Attribute or a Multi Action.


Show on Watch[edit]

This option defines whether the action you are applying it to will appear on the Apple Watch or Pebble Smart Watch.


Show on Mac[edit]

This option defines whether the action you are applying it to will appear on the OS X version of Home Remote - Activator.


Show on Apple TV[edit]

This option defines whether the action you are applying it to will appear on the Apple TV.


Apple TV Top Shelf[edit]

If the Home Remote app is on the top row of apps on the Apple TV , any action that has this option enabled will be available to call from the "Top Shelf" on the Apple TV when the Home Remote app has focus, similar to how films and TV shows appear when the Movies and TV apps have focus.
