I’m considering replacing my original iPad Air (late 2013) with something a bit faster. I did however get a refurbished model 1 year ago due to a home-button not working properly (5-year warranty) so I now have a unit which is effectively 1 year old, with excellent battery life etc, but it’s starting to get way to slow for my use.
That’s when I thought I might be able to use my old iPad Air as a Dashboard, but I’m not sure where to start. HomeKit etc. from Homey doesn’t really work that well, same with Google integration (lots of devices that didn’t work very well on Google Home app.
Grafana looks interesting, but is not really for adding buttons etc AFAIK.
I’d like to get temperatures, be able to change a (virtual) thermostat, maybe open/close balcony windows (and see state) custom icons for closed/open.
Suggestions? Something that can be ran fullscreen on iPad as well? “Sleep” until someone’s nearby/touches screen?
