Frequently Asked Questions

My device(s) don’t show up in the Widget?

For a device to show up in IndigoWidget, you must make sure that any devices you want to see and control have “Display in Remote UI” checked (turned on) in the “Edit Device” pane.

Also, there are problems handling devices, action groups, and variables that have quotation marks (‘ or ” ) and commas (,) in the title. At this time, it is recommended that you remove these characters from your device and group names.
