A dashboard made by Homey (Athom) might be (not far, far away, but:) on it’s way!

I too was fiddling arround with HA last week. Was getting into the whole MQTT stuff to talk to homwy so yeah that would be great to get some tutorials

A dashboard is almost standard. It’s like having a meal. It is not enough that it tastes good, it also has to look appetizing. Apparently Athom has not yet understood this and is forcing us to use Home Assistant. So you can drive your customers into the arms of the competition.


Wait for Athom, or build an app to connect Homey to all dashboards available in the world. I chose the latter :crazy_face:


Ik ben er ook bang voor… niet om flauw te doen maar ze kunnen niet eens een beetje-dashboard genereren met de tegels die je nu in de app lijst hebt staan. Alleen aan/uit of de kleur licht kun je zien. Als ze nu eens beginnen met andere sensor-waarden te presenteren in die tegels dan heb je al iets. Zelfs Apple kan dat met Home.app.

Als je een dashboard wilt, dan moet je aan de slag met Home Assistant. Het nadeel is wel dat alles net niet overal werkt en je dus wel met houtjes en touwtjes de boel aan elkaar knopen bent.
Ik begrijp dat Athom zegt dat iedereen wat anders wil. Aan de andere kant zou je best een drag and drop dashboard kunnen maken. De elementen zijn er bijna allemaal al, de waarden ook. Alleen gaat het om de interface. En dat kan Athom ook: gezien de nieuwe webapplicatie.

It has been a while since they came up with a ‘new’ product (the Pro was not really revolutionary so to say) They can’t just rely on the revenue of the one product they sell and a bit of income from the back-up subscription do they?

I’d be happy to pay some money to purchase a premium device to mount on the wall and maybe even a few amount to maintain upgradable UI and widgets.

they could even develop their own smarthome devices to co-exist to generate more income.

for me, progress is a bit slow and even declining a bit imo. Other companies increasing their smarthome slice of the pie.

I’ve just installed HA on my NAS and tinkering a bit with it, if I (a compleet noob) can get this working properly and manage to setup a nice dashboard that works for me I will probably spend my money on some other hardware to work along side Homey. maybe even putting it to rest forgood but time will tell.

I support the suggestion of easy integration to other already made dashboards. No need to create a GUI of the dashboard.
As I do not have a nas or PI at home, the MTQQ suggestions are a not obvious, and they also end up complicated and a lot of devices/steps that can fail.
So, sa homey app to create integration to a already well established dashboard, and I will be happy.

Do your screens fresh after being off? I use two iPads for this bu i manually have to restart the browser (or refresh it) each time the iPad is activated. Only then devices refresh.

Met homey.dash en deze lokaal draaien, middels de micro web server app, en wat tweaken, kom ik een heel eind v.w.b. de sensorwaardes (zonder eerst een tile te “longpressen”)

Try to force the browser to start with cache=0

Like “homeyurl/?cache=0”?

Allright I’ll try that. Thanks.
Just so I know; what does this do exactly?

Yea, I would like a customizable Homey dashboard

Can’t help you with the command, but if that works it works.
Preventing the use of cache forces the browser to get the most recent data, instead of showing what’s already stored in cache ( = temporary storage)

Unfortunately not. After closing the iPad it holds the last cache when you open it again. So, if a light has been turned on afterwards it shows as off on the iPad. But I’m using Chrome on the iPad so i don’t know if it’s an iPad issue. The Homey app shows instant changes, even if the app was open before closing the iPad.

Just some extra info; even HomeyDash refreshes when something changes. That’s also a browser dashboard. So I don’t understand why this isn’t working.

Please stay on topic and keep this thread about if you would like a dashboard from Homey and what you would like to see in it.
I suppose it’s better to discuss problems and questions with/about other dashboards in the respective topics.

So keep ur hopes up!

This is what I use. I created it myself to fit my needs.

The whole thing is hosted on my Synology NAS. I would love to see something official, but until then, I will keep improving my own version.


I stil miss the app imperihome.
Worked simply and well.
I see really beautiful creations passing by on the forum. But there is a lot of work in it. Here in the kitchen, a homeydash also runs on the nest hub, but it is nowhere near a dashboard as aboven.

Looks really nice, can you share the source code with us?

New dashboard would be nice
