The 18th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights! Some interesting things popped up around our community, we thought was worth sharing.
Do you want to share something for the next edition? Information on how to share.
You probably recognize it, while watching a movie you need to go to the toilet and you forget to pause the movie! What if you could automate this with a blueprint?
With the blueprint from jfedor you can pause your media player by turning on a light and if you turn it off within a certain time, the media player will continue. Read more about it on the community forum or install this automation in your instance with a click on the my button!
Also this week we have a new Lovelace dashboard for the necessary portion of inspiration 😄 This time it has become that of Crixle, what he has made in the past 5 months. Possibly this design can be used quite well for a tablet on the wall. Take also a look at the original post on Reddit
Would you also like your dashboard to be in the community highlight? Drop it on Reddit and maybe I’ll pick it out for the next edition.
It has been 11 weeks since I started as an intern at Nabu Casa, where I focus on how Home Assistant can be used to gain insight into your energy data and how to optimize your consumption. Time to give a brief summary of what is currently going on.
We are currently trying to design a ready-made Lovelace dashboard, in which all your energy data comes together. You can see a first paper prototype sketch below, if you have input on this topic, please share it with me via the Twitter thread!
In addition, I’m also working on an analog pulse meter, working with ESPHome that you can use to read the pulse LED on a meter. YAML configs for power plugs from Blitzwolf etc.
More information can also be found in the twitter thread below.
