This is where i’m going to draw the line, and lets keep discussing the possibility of a dashboard made by Athom.
Discussing if it is a mandatory thing is just an opinion and is different for everyone, that is with every (Added, or removed) feature.
But lets just keep it friendly, we are all here (I hope) to have a good time and help other people.
This is really clean and beautiful, Bas! May I ask what frameworks you are using to create this dashboard?
On-topic, I’d like to see something out of the box from Athom, but in the mean while I am happy to create a custom solution using Grafana, NodeRed, Prometheus or similar. I’d like to see relevant sensor data like inside / outside temp., el-price forcast, weather forcast, calendar, where the family members are, and be able to trigger a few flows.
I’ve managed to make pretty nice dashboards in HA. But actually I don’t look at it very often, as I noticed. The crafting is the most fun haha. I find it useful if I can quickly switch certain groups of lamps, curtains, etc. But all those statuses…
It’s really very personal, so a dash should be fairly flexible to arrange.
My modified Homeydash also still functions fine here.
Thanks hehe. It runs on a second hand NUC (8 to 10 yrs old, 8GB dualcore), running linux Debian 11.
I installed VirtualBox and imported the HA image for it from the HA website.
It runs 2 instances, one instance is for testing and trying to break stuff.
The NUC was E50,-
You can install VirtualBox or VMware on your regular computer windows system, then download & import the ready to run HA image, and start fiddling right away.
Install MQTT Hub + MQTT Client on Homey, and MQTT Broker on HA.
Optional, install Home Assistant app on Homey, when you want to interact with HA devices from Homey.
When things are connected, HA starts to build a dash by itself with all devices (and will continue doing that with new devices).
Then there is Dwain’s dashboard, which is also full automatic, but editable.
This is a good tip. I’ve tried to set it up, but none of my homey controlled devices are visible in the HomeHabit app. mqtt is set up and all my devices are seen by a mqtt browser, but I get nothing in HomeHabit. Do you have any tips, or guides you could point me towards?
I do not use thermostats myself, but tried to figure it out.
A solution I found is to set it up as a dimmer.
Add it in the mqtt integration the thermostat as a dimmer and ad the widget as a dimmer.
Than you can select the style up/down. Maybe set a minimum and maximum temperature.
Maybe not the nicest solution, but it works.
And else you have to ask the developer.
