Community Highlights: 25th edition


The 25th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights! Some interesting things popped up around our community, which we thought was worth sharing.

Also, keep an eye out for the ESPHome release next week Wednesday. We’re going to have some great announcements!

Blueprint of the week

Are there more people who turn their lights on and off at certain times when they go on holiday?

This week’s blueprint is that of timgiwo, who created a blueprint that can repeat the behavior of your lights from the past week, so it seems like you are still at home. 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!

Slider Button Card

Mattieha made a button card that also included a slider, so you could, for example: switch a light but also immediately adjust the brightness with the slider. Useful for those who want to keep their dashboard compact.

Floorplan Dashboard

This week again we have a new Lovelace dashboard for the necessary portion of inspiration 😄 This time the one from theone11 who has a dashboard with a floorplan, definitely recommended to take a look at the repository because there is a lot of explanation on it.

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.


Between the community submissions, we came across a nice project that works with ESPHome, it’s a sensor with which you can monitor your own homebrew, for example, the alcohol percentage and the temperature. Cheers Alexander! 🍻
