Community Highlights: 27th edition

The 27th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights! Some interesting things popped up around our community, which we thought was worth sharing.

But first I have one more announcement. My internship is (almost) over and I’m happy to say that I passed and completed it with a good grade. That also means that this community highlight is the last one from me as an intern, time will tell when the next one will appear.

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

Blueprint of the week

![](upload://laxW40s3fqX5zPNuVspYWHAstt9.svg)

This week’s blueprint is that of bfranke1973, who has created a blueprint with which you can receive a notification when a device loses connection with the network. 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!

Love Lock Card

Do you ever accidentally turn on a light or switch? Then try the love lock card made by CyrisXD. With this, you can create a card that is locked and you can unlock it with, for example, a pin code or a simple click on the card.

Lovelace Dashboard

This week again we have a new Lovelace dashboard for the necessary portion of inspiration 😄 This time the one from swake88 who is improving his dashboard for use on a mobile device. If you want to know more about it, check out the comment part on Reddit.

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

Statistic Tools

Home Assistant has a number of tools for working with statistics, but the question is how can you best approach this. Carlos has written a very good guide on how to get started and how to make cards that use this data.

Got a tip for the next edition?

Have you seen (or made) something awesome, interesting, unique, amazing, inspirational, unusual or funny, using Home Assistant?

@klaasnicolaas thanks for all your work over the last 20 weeks as the very first intern. You’ve went above and beyond and did an amazing job at everything that came your way, including building ESPHome devices and designing and 3D printing cases for it. It is a pleasure to have you around!

I am very sure that the energy project that you spearheaded will be received very well when it launches soon :sunglasses:

Cheers,
Paulus

@klaasnicolaas, have you seen @swakes’s Security Dashboard preview? That looks amazing. I just cannot wait when he will share the code of it.

If you missed it:

Removed the reaction @ame3x, it’s a bit out of context to respond this way / not related to this topic. If you have any problems or need support please open a new topic.

Yes I saw, looks cool!

In regards to the LoveLock post, very cool. But what i would really like to know more about are those cards for heating and cooling tthat have a start and end time. Anyone know what those are ? @CyrisXD ?
