How to Install Custom Apps v1

From Hubitat Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

The Hubitat community has developed some great apps to help you automate your devices in new, cool ways. Once you have the code, you can install them here:

  1. The developer of the app will normally post a link to their app code. Follow their directions to get to the source code. Select and copy it.
  2. From the home page of your Hubitat Elevation™ Web Interface, click on Apps Code in the menu bar.
  3. Click on the +New App button in the upper right corner of the Apps Code page.
  4. In the blank text field, paste the code.
  5. Click on the Save button in the top right. When the "modified" goes away, your app is saved.

You may experience an error in this step. If you do, your app will not save and it will not work. Please contact the developer of the app in the forum. It is usually best if you take a screen shot of the error to help them diagnose the problem. Once the code is fixed, come back and try again.

Loading Your User Developed App

Once your app has successfully saved, you will need to load it to your Web Interface before you can use it:

  1. Click on Apps in your Web Interface
  2. Click on the Load New App button
  3. Scroll down and click on your new app in the User Apps section

That's it. You're all set to create glorious home automations with your new app. Don't forget to thank the developer on the community forum for their hard work.
