Show Off Your Dashboards!

THAT'S GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you!

I absolutely LOVE that dash board it is really awesome. Would love some guidance in doing something similar. I am really new don't even have any devices set up yet. I am still trying to see how I can connect to MyQ Garage Door. I have bought several smart devices i am planning on installing this weekend (8 Lutron switches, Lutron Remote switches and a Schlage Connect smart lock)

Any guidance offered would be so very much appreciated.

Not sure about MyQ, but I own the Nexx Garage door opener and although it's not supported out of the box by Smartthings, Wink or Hubitat, it's pretty easy to create a virtual switch and use IFTTT to control it.

Thanks

I am a real newbie on this. what are the steps if you would in setting it up?

I assume there is a selection for IFTTT

What are the things you need?

IP address I assume

Mac address?

The MyQ code I found allows for logging into the MyQ account so thought it would address it through there.

Thanks

Any chance of a teaser image? =)

Nope....you don't need to know any of that stuff....the apps all do that behind the scenes. First you need to get yourself an IFTTT account and link it to Hubitat. Instructions for that can be found here:

After that would simply need to create a virtual switch in Hubitat and link it to an self created applet in IFTTT, below is mine using the Nexx Garage and I created a separate one to open. (Note: My virtual switch is named: "Garage Door Sync"

There are some really awesome dashboards posted on here and it's great seeing everyone openly share them. Many of you have done some really amazing things with automating your homes.

Call me old school or even paranoid, but I am not a fan of disarming an alarm determined by a sensor that could be lost or stolen, so I prefer a pin to disarm. I really liked the live weather and camera feeds that some of you have incorporated. Several of the local weather stations have already migrated away from a single image of the 7 day forecast and are now using interactive html components, and I am concerned the last couple of sources might change their format in the near future. For the cameras, at first I was thinking iframes on pages hosted on a computer to allow me to combine them with my HE dashboards; however, in the event of a power loss I prefer to have a minimum number of devices on the battery backup and that computer is a power hog.

Those three things drove me to take a different approach with my dashboard. I created an android app with a transparent background so that I can see my clock and weather widgets :slight_smile: . Once the app is opened it is instantly pinned and requires the device pin to go back to the home page. Since there is technically a background the widgets are not accessible which is nice for security purposes, so all functions are limited to what is displayed in the app. I am currently just running two cameras and duplicated them for the time as a placeholder for future additions. The keypad on the second image is actually laid on top of the HE dashboard. There are transparent buttons that cover the system status and Alarm Off buttons. Once the correct pin is entered the button over Alarm Off is removed for 5 seconds to enable the user to disarm the alarm. The Alarm Off, Home, and Away buttons are virtual buttons in HE that change the status of the HSM. The HSM status is redundant, and I will probably use that space as I add more functionality to my system.

Very nice... You'll be happy to know that HSM and Modes will have a pop up keypad to enter a numeric pin to change either.

Here's a quick preview of what this looks like in the upcoming Dashboard 2.0 release:

More to come soon about Dashboard 2

A 3d button?! Hmmm

how about the #1 reason preventing me from using the built in dash... actual thermostat tiles?

Of course we wouldn't rewrite dashboard basically from scratch without doing a thermostat tile.

At first I saw clocks, now all I see is the back end of legless pigs. image LOL

Damn! Coffee through the nose is painful!

I like the soapbox derby car icon. I have to find a use for that one.
