I’m current running Home Assistant 116.2 as an UnRAID container. Over the last year, I’ve set up several home automations and played around with the Lovelace UI: Ive got the following thing in my homse:
Eufy security cameras
2 wifi plugs
several z-wave switches
myQ garage door
2 firetv sticks
other media streamers
Anyway, given all this stuff, and the lack of an integrated place to control everything, I’ve decided to get more into HA and set up a dashboard. I have a Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2 tablet and I’ve loaded the fully kiosk browser (free version for now), and I can point that to my default Lovelace UI and I can see the potential. I think this older tablet will work for this and it does have pretty good resolution. Agreed?
When I see the slick dashboards people have, I can tell that this is not done with the cards in the default Lovelace UI. I cannot figure out how to make these cards behave beyond doing basic things. I assume custom cards are needed to create these nicer displays? If so, what are the recommended custom cards? How are people making such impressive dashboards? Or is it driven by custom themes?
Any advice or guidance appreciated!
