Show Off Your SharpTools Dashboards!

How did you get the rooms different on each device as the prime dashboard? I presume you just pick The dashboard you on each unit And leave them that way.


I created 3 dashboards. Each has it’s own URL. It is a good thing to have tiles that are specific to the room/home location for each panel. The “copy” feature is useful to create the same function across dashboards,


What do you mean by Unifi Status Page… i.e the main dashboard of unifi or something else?

Yes, the main dashboard of unifi so I can quickly see the status of all my AP’s

Could you post how that looks?

also is that just a URL to the Unifi Dashboard or are you utilizing API?

Here is version 1 of my screens. Running a fire tablet 8 latest version.

  1. Using Josh’s post on settings for a stock fire tablet side loading fully kiosk for fire tablets

  2. I design the screens on a desktop along with Chrome browser is mobile mode. Press F12 and then for a fire tablet 8 use 961x602 for the screen size. Josh also has a post able doing this.

Excellent post, @Kent!

Those are some really great examples and it’s awesome that you linked to the threads where you learned various tips and tricks! Super helpful for other people who are trying to learn!

The rule with the doorbell being rung triggering Fully Kiosk Browser to change to a dashboard with the doorbell image full screen is brilliant. Nice work!

Love the dashboards @Kent

Here is my “Kitchen Dashboard” on an HP Slate 21 Pro–still in progress. Planning on adding navigation to other dashboards on the left hand side.

Here is my “Deck Dashboard” on an Fire HD 7–still in progress. As above, planning on adding more “sub dashboards” and navigation to it.
Home Dash…

Light Dash…


I’m really digging the light color scheme!

And I find that using big tiles on the 7" tablets like you’ve done makes it much easier to use.

I found that by changing the default tile scaling I could make a clean interface that fits will on the Fire 10" screen. What browser are you using for the Fire 7"?

I am using Fully Kiosk for the Fire tablet.

Hey guys. This is actually my very first post on any community… Ever. I have had vivint smart home for a few years. I love the security. Hate the smart home. So recently I got smartthings and research led me to sharptools. By trade I’m an electrician, I have the hardware install down pretty darn well. I’m loving learning how to automate everything and learning the software side. I have a fire 7 inch in my front room and an old 10 inch samsung note tablet in the bedroom.


Not the best pics. Didn’t want to exit out of fully kiosk to take scteenshots on the devices so I just took photos with my phone. Next step is to learn to hyperlink vivint into the dashboard amd get myself some sonos speakers. I have Google home, but trying to get that integrated is beyond my capabilities right now.


Nice work, @Alex_Burrows! Glad to hear you chose SharpTools as the place to make your first community post ever!

Those skills as an electrician are much desired here when people are trying to wall mount their tablets. Other community members have told us that running power to their tablets is one of the things that brings them the most hesitation.

You might be interested to know that Makes by Mike has some neat power options (and mounts) available:

I do admit my skills as an electrician do come in handy for wall mounting! And that link is perfect, thanks Josh! I’ve seen his tablet mounts on Amazon but it’s nice to know he has his own website and the power supply options.


One thing to note about the mounts mad by mike is that they are a 3D printed mount and mine was a raw 3D print. So you can see the lines and markings from the printer. Using a combination of 80 grit, 120 grit, 225 grit and wet 1000 grit sand along with a primer/filler and then a good white gloss spray paint job you can get a good looking finish.


That’s good to know Kent, thank you!

Here’s my dashboard. I did a full write-up with screenshots and photos here:

SharpTools is amazing!


@Mads_Kristensen, thanks for sharing. Love the color and layouts of the sub-dashboard design. :grinning:
