I have recently been down a large rabbit hole with my favorite home automation software, Home Assistant. You can expose as much or as little of your smart home to the wider internet or move everything off the cloud and keep your devices local behind a firewall and separated from your main network and a VLAN.
I'm not interested in ligating this at the moment; what I want to write about today is Home Assistant dashboards.
What are dashboards?
Dashboards are just that; a place where you can collect different aspects of your Home Assistant instance using Lovelace cards that display that information in a visual way.
Or the UI, as it is called. ↩︎
Can you please just show me examples??
Sure! Here are a few of my dashboards in Home Assistant below.
Office on the Home dashboard
Smaller dashboards of note
I have dashboards in the sidebar I am currently configuring.
Home and device stats
Energy monitoring stats
Have an interesting dashboard?
I'd like to hear from you! You can send me your dashboards at dashboards at Suburban Smarts dot org.
