Community Highlights: 19th edition

The 19th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights! Some interesting things popped up around our community, we thought was worth sharing.

Amazing to see how many reactions there have been after sharing the internship progress, we have seen many cool things and if you have any input you can still share this of course! ❤️

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

Blueprint of the week

This week’s blueprint is that of delphiki, with which you can plan on which days of the week your vacuum cleaner should start cleaning and at what time. Try it out! Read more about it on the community forum or install this automation in your instance with a click on the My button!

Lovelace Dashboard

Also this week we have a new Lovelace dashboard for the necessary portion of inspiration 💡 This time it has become that of Make_Itt_Work, where he also processed the telemetry data from his car in the dashboard. Now we are of course very curious how that works? 😄

Take also a look at the original post on Reddit. Would you like your dashboard to be in the community highlight? Drop it on Reddit and maybe I’ll pick it out for the next edition.

Vacuum Card

Besides being able to automate when your vacuum cleaning robot gets started, you probably also want to show the status of your robot in Lovelace. Then try the vacuum card from denysdovhan, with which you can show that in a beautiful way and there is support for the well-known models that are now available on the market.

OpenTTS 2.0

Maybe the name still sounds fairly unknown to you, but OpenTTS is an add-on, which gives you the possibility to use multiple open source Text to Speech systems. So that you can eventually have text spoken on: for example, a Google Home speaker. synesthesiam recently released a new version of OpenTTS and you can install it as an add-on in Home Assistant.
