Blueprint of the week


Are you one of those who always leave the doors open?

Then this week we have a nice blueprint for you! BasTijs has made a blueprint that announces through text to speech in the house, that a door is open and only stops when the door is closed again.

Try it out! Read more about it on the community forum or install this automation in your instance with a click on the My button!

Sun card


On our Home Assistant reddit page we also encountered another nice project, namely that of AitorDB. Who made a Lovelace card that shows the position of the sun when it rises, is at its highest point and sets again.

Collapsed card


Is your Lovelace dashboard overflowing with cards and do you want to make some free space? Then try the card made by RossMcMillan92, which makes it possible to collapse entire cards and reappear as a dropdown.

Hyperion - HA bridge


You have those TVs where LEDs are mounted on the back so that the colors of the TV continue over the wall behind it, this is also called ambilight. If your TV is not equipped with this, you can also make this yourself through the Hyperion project. pimw has also written an instruction post about this on our community forum on how to connect the bridge to Home Assistant.
