So this is great if you have a wallmounted iPad as a dashboard and don´t want the screen to be always on. I searched everywhere for this but did not find any solution. Until yesterday ! I saw a post on reddit with a simple, yet brilliant solution.
You need this:
iOS device. I have an iPad with iOS 14 that is wallmounted.
One motiondetector compatible with homekit (or any other sensor working with homekit).
Sensors in homey can be used in homekit with the homeykit app.
In the Apple Home app set the motion sensor (or any other sensor of your choice) to send you a notification. This will trigger the display to turn on. In notifaction settings, turn off notification sound for the home app.
Go to settings for guided assess mode. Select how long the screen should stay on in guided access mode.
Open your dashboard of choice and then activate guided access mode with three clicks on the homebutton. DONE.
Now everytime the motion sensor register motion it will send a notifcation, the screen will wake up. But the notifaction will not be seen beacuse you have activated guided asstiance.
ATT: You might have to delete your screen password and set the screen to be always on in the screen settings for this to work.
Simple yet brillant I cant find the post on reddit but i want to thank the guy comming up with this idea.
