ESPHome Acquisition

Last week we announced that ESPHome will continue under the umbrella of Nabu Casa from now on. If you want to hear more about it, be sure to listen to the latest Home Assistant Podcast in which Paulus explains more about the future of ESPHome.

Uptime Card

For those who would like to show their uptime robot status or other types of binary sensors in a very special way, there is now a new card made by dylandoamaral which is inspired on the uptime status page of Reddit.

Keep in mind that the card is still at an early stage of development.

DIY Smart Lock

Always wanted to make your door lock smarter? Then try the DIY solution from bkbilly, with which you can make your own smart door lock with a stepper motor, 3D printed gears and ESP32, which communicates with your Home Assistant instance via ESPHome.

More information about this project can be found on the community forum.
