Repurposed old tablet into Dashboard


#1

Looks great on my Nexus 7. Need to find a mount for it and get a couple more tablets for media room and upstairs now.

Thanks for sharing James. What do you think about having the top nav bar hide if you use the fullscreen mode from the ... overflow menu?

That way you get an even more immersive experience and better use of the screen real estate.


#3

Yeah, I’d like to hide the top nav bar if in full screen mode to get more space for the tiles.


#4

What browser are you using?


#5

@Jeffrey_Vingin it’s Google Chrome.


#6

Looks good @James. Do you have to continuously log-in after long absences or does it persist the login forever?


#7

@Frak_N, I am still in the middle of installing the permanent wall mount, so I don’t think I have run it long enough that I was asked to re-login. (I had ran it for a few days continuously without re-login though.)
Need to look into how long the cookie expires.


#8

@Frak_N the sessions should persist until you explicitly sign-out.


#9

I would like to remove the top bar too


#10

Got the recessed outlet and mount installed last night. Using Fully browser on Fire HD 10". Looks pretty good.

Still working on colors and such but have 3 imbedded dashboards for lights, sensors and larger views of camera’s. I ended up placing this today. Its not permeant yet bc I might get a FHD10 on prime day :slight_smile:

The last update came at a great time as I was about to buy AT. I have not looked at the rules engine but on the list to play with.

Keep up the great work.


#12

Looks awesome! I like the layout with the cameras/media around the corners. Thanks for sharing - and thanks for all the feedback!


#13

2 questions.

I have a sonos and when i added it to ST tile it doesnt let me control it. I really liked that In AT.
Also, see the thermostat colors. mine arent triggering ‘active’ and changing colors. They should change when ‘cooling’ and ‘idle’ right?

Thanks

Media Device tiles are on the list. What kind of tile layout and controls did you have in mind?

I don’t currently have the thermostat tiles report an active state, but that would be straightforward to add. Your thought is it would primarily be reported based on the state of cooling/heating vs idle?


#15

I would like to push play on Sonos tile and start last played music. Tile that has a play button. Anything more is bonus. Skip/ff/volume etc.

It would be nice to activate a color when running and different when idle and really cool a different color when heat.
