  • make horizontal-stack cards act as horizontal

I have some button-card on a horizontal-stack, but act like vertical stack yet…


Wanted to say act as vertical. :stuck_out_tongue: There are some rendering issues for now on the horizontal stack card, so this alternative was put instead.

Is there any way to use the Ariela device tracker to replace google_maps in the as a tracker? Google location sharing is horrendously slow, some times as much as 15 minutes. I want to use something that updates more frequently and thought the Ariela device tracker would do the trick. I haven’t figured out a way for it to show up on the map within HA. I also don’t want multiple device trackers running that suck my battery dry.

Hello all,

If anyone want to check what lovelace cards are currently supported by Ariela, the list can be found here:

Thank you.


Reporting a lovelace camera issue:

  - name: Weather Radar
    platform: generic
      - type: vertical-stack
          - type: picture-entity
            entity: camera.weather_radar
            show_info: false

Shows an empty card but tapping on the card to get its details, I can see the weather radar displayed in a small icon next to the information.

Also, can there be an option (didn’t see one) where I can manually send GPS coords rather than waiting for motion to happen? I tried setting it to 1m and walked around my home but it didn’t send anything and I may not be going outside today to test otherwise :slight_smile:

EDIT: Sorry, I think I posted this into the wrong thread, I think it should be over in the Ariela thread, sorry.


No worries,
Please use the contact option from Ariela, and also it would be nice if you can include a screenshot of the issue / screenshot of how its showing in HA server.


Just sent it, hopefully it makes it to you.


Thanks, got the info.
