[RELEASE] Hubitat Dashboard - Android dashboard app

It's actually pretty easy, as the app grabs everything from your hub.
After you install the MakerAPI, there's a list of your devices you choose to add. When you run the HubDash app, using the IP address for the hub, it grabs the devices that you checked in MakerAPI from your hub and displays them.

You can then customize the look after that.

thanks for reply..i did as you mention..

i figure it out now. i have to type device maker id which is hide in side login help....thanks any way.

Ah yes -- I forgot that. I found that ID in the URLs at the bottom.

  • add folder option to manage devices inside folder
  • if icon color is changed, also change text color (main) to match

The folder option lets you select any devices you want to include (or remove) from a folder - another option if using using drag & drop is too slow.

The icon color change refers to when you change the icon color. Now, the text color will also change to match. I'm also not trying to change the color of certain icons either since that didn't work for everything (ie: HSM or app icons)

Is there away for the HSM icon to show it's being armed with the delay, the same way it shows in the HE dashboard?

This is how it should show today. The icon is the same but the text will change once it's fully armed. Is this what you're looking for or something else?

OMG...this is great! Folder option provide a great configuration option! Thanks!

Perfect. Frankly, I hate even asking for anything, when I'm not paying for it. I really appreciate your work. I just moved to HE and this make life so much easier.

@jpage4500 has asked me to coordinate his business affairs.

Send me a PM and I'll provide you our suggested donation levels, and to make it simpler we've decided on bitcoin, gold, and vintage cars of the 20's and 30's (with full provenance).

Unfortunately, I sent all of the above to the Nigerian Prince who has promised a much more lucrative deal. Having said that, once the aforementioned Prince satisfies his responsibilities, I will be happy to send you most, if not all, of the proceeds.

version 1.0.506 (beta)

  • add support for Blink Cameras (arm/disarm, enable/disable motion)
  • better cloud detection logic

The big change here is support for Blink Cameras. I picked up 3 Blink XT cameras for cheap on Amazon Prime day and with a brand new Blink driver for Hubitat I've gotten these integrated into the dashboard!

The driver is still very new and under active development.. but, I was able to get some important functions into the dashboard including arming and disarming the system as well as enabling motion detection an individual camera. Finally, you can open the Blink app from the dashboard as well.



At some point in the future I'd love to add image and video support but these aren't possible as of today.

NOTE: right now the 'armed' state comes from the Blink 'network driver' and isn't set per-camera.. so, you need to include this as well as the cameras in the MakerAPI in order for the armed state to be set.

Tried to sign up for the Beta a couple days ago -- still in progress. Left and tried again. Do you have to approve or is it googly?

weird.. anyone should be able to join the beta version just with the URL

Got it. I left beta progress, uninstalled, reinstalled and added beta, successfully. All updated. Thanks!

Ran across this: Refurbished: Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T580 10.1" FHD 1920x1080 16 GB Black Android Tablet - Newegg.com-9SIA60GBZS8301--Product

Seems like overkill for the dashboard. What are your thoughts. Would this be future proofing, or a waste of resources?

That seems like more towards over-doing it, I think. Unless @jpage4500 is going to start obseleting old Android OS versions due to some issues, you don't need anything special at all to run the dashboard.

I haven't really looked into cheap tablets as I have several old ones around the house, but others here may be able to point you to something simpler/cheaper that will work well.

My sons both have, what I think are 8 inch Tab A that are a few years old. I could hijack those.
