Community Highlights: 16th edition

What did you think of the release last Wednesday? A lot of cool things have been added! But there were also a lot of great projects shared this week from the community and we have selected the best for you. So here’s the 16th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights!

Do you want to share something for the next edition? Information on how to share.


Blueprint of the week

You’re leaving home and oh dear! It turns out that one of your lights is on 💡 What if you then receive a notification with an option to switch off the light, without having to open the Home Assistant app first?

With the blueprint from vorion you can easily get started to create your own actionable notifications, give it a try. Read more about it on the community forum or install this automation in your instance with a click on the my button!

Google Home

Long ago it was possible to read the alarms and timers from your Google Home in Home Assistant, due to a change in the API this was unfortunately no longer possible.

But thanks to a new custom integration from leikoilja, it’s now possible to integrate alarms or timers that you have set up on a Google Home device. For example, you could switch the lights automatically in the morning based on an alarm clock that you have set.

Tempometer Gauge Card

Are you looking for a card to spice up your existing gauge card? Then try the tempometer gauge card made by SNoof85.

Lovelace Dashboard

This week also a Lovelace dashboard and this time that of agneevX, the nice thing about this dashboard is that it’s designed from a mobile first principle. Which means that you make a design / dashboard for the smallest screen (mobile) and then work out step by step how it will look on a larger screen (desktop).

You can find all his code in this repository on Github.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

finally google home timers!!! again that is lol

ditto!, and that mobile notification blueprint looks pretty nice.

I’m enjoying these community updates. I thought I stayed pretty close to all-things-ha, but I always find something new in these. Keep up the good work Klaas!

the best dashboard is still dwains-lovelace-dashboard. That would be something for the next community highlight.

Ok nice one this highlight !! (i read them all, but its the first with things im gonna use!)
In fact, there are 2 in this one :slight_smile:
Havent used blueprints before, but this one looks very nice !
The google home alarms ! Been looking for that too !

Thumbs up with this highlight ! Hope more will come :slight_smile:

Thx for the heads up on my “work”. It’s a very light card compared to much advanced cards we can find. Hope that people won’t wait on too much of this card.

When committing something and it is not in the next community highlights post does it mean it was not interesting enough or maybe coming later because there are to many things committed?
