Automatic return to the home page

Hello and thanks for the support

I would like to create an automation that, after a certain number of seconds, automatically brings me back to a preset screen, for example the home page.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Hi mssimo,

some more information would be required here to help you efficently.

Which device are you using?
Do you have already a sensor in place?
Do you have already a command in place where you can switch to a specific page?

I am personally running a FireHD tablet with FullyKioskBrowser.
FKB can provide a REST sensor with “currentPage” & “startURL” as attributes.
I have created a template binary_sensor which compares boths and switches to “on” if both do not match.
An automation with a FullyKioskBrowser command then resets to the start page.

The following in secrets.yaml (Storing secrets - Home Assistant) :

fkb_deviceinfo_firehd_gang_1: http://192.168.XX.XX:2323/?cmd=deviceInfo&type=json&password=XXXXX
fkb_command_firehd_gang_1: http://192.168.XX.XX:2323/?cmd={{ cmd }}&key={{ key }}&value={{ value }}&type=json&password=XXXXX

The REST COmmand:

rest_command:
  fkb_firehd_gang_1_cmd:
    url: !secret fkb_command_firehd_gang_1

My Sensors:

        data:
