🔹 Browser_mod - turn your browser into a controllable device, and a media_player

Hi!

Is it possible to change the width of the popup window? for example, double.
With “large: false” option is too small, and with “large: true” option the size is too big :slight_smile:

Thanks for your help!

That’s what style is for

New feature!
Entities can now be disabled. Either per device or globally.

Not released in HACS yet, but can be installed if you select the master version.

Thank you, it works great!

With this new feature group.all_lights now only holds my actual lights, fixing my automations. Great!

Also… I did not know you had Browser Mod on HACS. It isn’t mentioned in the readme as far as I can see, so because of your comment I now also installed it through HACS. I like it.

:man_shrugging:

on the home assistant companion app (onto my ipad tablet) the app crashes / closes when i try to call the service browser_mod.debug.

I’m not sure if I can clear the cache overthere but i completely uninstalled and reinstalled the program and it is still not working.

the plugin is working fine on other devices :slight_smile:

Anyone an idea?

Kind regards,
Stijn

I can’t reproduce this problem on the Beta 2.0 version of the app.
Do you get an error in your log?

In the beta app, there’s a button at the bottom of the settings page to Reset Frontend Cache. I can’t remember if there’s anything like it in v. 1.5…

Thanks Dino, finally got it to work.

Oh, wow. How did I miss that? I was looking for a header HACS or something :grin:.

Hi Thomas,

I’ve had a major update from the companion app and after going to the initial setup (first time the new companion app has launched) the problems seems to be resolved :slight_smile:

kind regards,

Hi @thomasloven

I have multiple displays with different resolution so I have made several “Home dashboards” specific to every device and I’m hiding the other home tabs which are not needed to that device. On other tabs like “Heating” (which are the same to all devices) I’ve placed a “Home” button with a browser_mod.navigate service to navigate to the Home tab specific to that device.
Example:

tap_action: 
  action: call-service
  service: browser_mod.navigate
  service_data:
     navigation_path: /lovelace/1
     deviceID:
         - 6asf58ff-a5554f8c

Is it possible to have multiple navigation_path for every device. To be more clear: if deviceID = 6asf58ff-a5554f8c go to /lovelace/1, if deviceID = jhgjhgjhg-hgjhgjhg go to /lovelace/2 and so on.

Thank you

@thomasloven first thank you for this component. Looking for a bit of advise:
I’ve tried to remove the media_player, light and sensor with different combinations of this, but they (entities) keep showing up:

devices:
  ed89012f-bbbc6923:
    name: JP-PHONE-INT 
    disable:
      - light
      - media_player
      - sensor
disable:
  - all
prefix: "browser_"

thank you

Did you install the master version from github, or the latest release in HACS?

Uff not sure about the initial install, but I’ve definitely been updating it from HACS since the las 5 or 6 revisions.

Then it’s not included yet. It’s an unreleased feature on HACS as of yet.

@thomasloven thank you for your time. I’ve pulled from master now and works as you indicated.

How can I monitor the battery levels? I am using fully kiosk and can see them under the sensor but how can I monitor just the battery? I want to set an automation to turn on and off a plug when the battery is at 20 and 80%

Loving brower_mod, but I had an issue a couple days ago. I have been using Fully Kiosk Browser as my alarm panel on a samsung tablet. When I came home I noticed my entry MP3 sound was not playing. After some troubleshooting I realized the device ID had changed. Is there any reason why the device ID for a Fully Kiosk Browser would change?
