This component is great, really simplified a problem I have had automating my work commute.
I have an irregular work commute - by bike, transit, and driving depending on the day to different places. Using variables and beacons, HA can keep track of what transit mode I am using currently (and also, which bike I took because why not).
name: "Transit Mode"
name: "Which Bike?"
I’ve set up Google Travel Times to pull all 3 transit modes from current location to my next work calendar event. HA can then tell me the fastest commute mode, but regardless of which I choose it will know based on what beacon goes with me and can tailor notifications accordingly. If I leave in my car, send driving directions and a photo of the map. If I leave on bike, send cycling directions and a photo of the destination in street view. If I take a bike to one appointment, send me a ‘leave now to avoid being late’ based on the cycling time to get to the next one. etc.
Am thinking I can add a simple ‘alarm’ for the bikes. If transit_mode is Bike, arm an alarm for the transit_bike that is out - get notifications when that beacon only is out of range
Anyways, still some work to do on this but it opens up a lot of possibilities
