You have one option…
You can use toggle icons… so that the state changes… you are correct in saying its not true… its only true when you only control it from the tablet… but it looks cooler…

Nice to see that my topic is fianlly kicking off :wink:

ImperiHome and HABPanel are indeed the kind of dashboards I was thinking of, would be great to have a nicely looking and fully functioning customizable dashboard for all devices connected to Homey. I would then put this on 7"/8" tablets and mount them to some of the walls in my house.

Any word from the developer of HomeyDash about his ambitions for 2.0?

I am also still waiting on a good dashboard, HomeyDash is horrible, i need to set the whole dashboard on the tablet because everything saves locally.

I do have a nice screensaver already for my dashboard: It is free and nice to see the weather https://dakboard.com/

That would be awesome! Could you share the details of how you made it?

I’m developing a mqtt communication ‘gateway’ for Homey. When this app is installed, all Homey devices and their capabilities are shared over mqtt (iot communication protocol) in a format which HABpanel understands (the Homie Convention). The MQTT Gateway app is currently in alpha status (=experimental). If you want to test it now, the app can be installed via the athom-cli. Eventually it will become available in the Athom app store (patience). When installed, all Homey devices will automatically appear in HABpanel as channels within a ‘Homie MQTT device’. How to accomplish this, can be found on many openhab fora. Finally the channels are linked to ‘things’ (the devices within openhab) which can be added to a custom dashboard or be controlled from one of the many openhab interfaces. Of course equal results can be achieved for any application with the ability to communicate over mqtt (e.g. I’ve seen some working Android & iOS app dashboards already).


Some work in progress on a new dashboard: [CONCEPT] HEIMA for Homey (Wall Mounted Dashboard)


Just stumbled across this via Pinterest, looks awesome


But what is it?

I think it’s just a concept idea, someone designing what could be a dashboard
