Dashboard


#1

Hi all,

In yesterday’s email update from Athom they mention that they run dashboards on Homey and use Chromecast to display these on a TV. The Chromecast part I get, but from my knowledge it’s not possible to create dashboards on Homey using it’s data from sensors etc. I know HomeyDash is there but doesn’t really do what I am looking for, so my question is twofold:

  • Can I create custom dashboards with Honey data? For example showing temperature development over the last X hours, door sensor status and notifications on packages that are being delivered.
  • If not, what will the possible with Homey v2 with regard to creating dashboards?

You can cast a website to the chromecast


#3

They said they use homey and Chromecast to stream dashboards. thats something different then saying we create a homey dashboard.

Thats something you should ask athom directly


#4

Yes u can. Try Grafana


#5

I’m also looking for this, And the app homeydash and the site homeyda.sh are not what I want.

How do I get data from Homey to show in Grafana? Can I connect Grafana directly to Homey? Or how do I get the data from Homey in an external database?

Well, take a look here.


#7

Just an example of some Homey stats:

This looks really nice but does require an external NAS to run Prometheus on, which can get quite technical and should not be necessary with the Homey infrastructure.

Can someone from the dev team tell us a bit more on what will and what won’t be possible in 2.0 for dashboards?

Hi @Sanderrr just some info for you, and i know sounds a bit strange but qustions directly to the devs should be asked directly and on the forum.

Read this welcome post here on the forum.

So then I hereby invite the honourable mr @bram to this topic :slight_smile:

Hi @Sanderrr

You dont need an NAS or really any device in your own network, im running prometheus at microhost.com. it wil cost you 2,5$ a month and works fine.

example of my dashboard:

Thanks, will have a look! However, I think this is something Homey should support way easier then it is now, and free! Hope that @Bram can shed some light here.

i love to have an dash like this also and tried to understand how this works. I have downloaded prometheus into homey. I don’t see anything usable. Then i went to “docker” to try and understand what this is. You realy have to be an IT expert to understand this. Its a new language for me. To bad that these things are so dificult.
