Ovio | An alternative native app for Home Assistant

Ovio | An alternative native app for Home Assistant

For the past two years I have been working on an alternative app for Home Assistant. When I got into home automation I was quickly drawn to Home Assitant, however, I would have liked a more opinionated UI. I then decided to start a little experiment that grew a bit out of control.

Since it is opinionated, the Ovio app is less customizable. This comes with the advantage that setting the app up is quick.

Please be aware that the app is in an early stage and bugs may be present, if you find some please let me know!

:bulb: | Easily control your lights

You can easily control multiple lights at once and quickly set the right atmosphere by selecting one of the 12 pre-made light scenes.


:thermometer: | Control your thermostats and covers


:musical_note: | Media in a single panel

Control your media/shows/music from a single panel.

:lock: | Security Overview

A single place for your home security. Control your alarm with biometrics, see recently activated sensors, and lock/unlock your doors.


:brain: Drag & drop automation canvas

I created a canvas on which you can visually create automations. It integrates natively with Home Assistant automations. For the time being a limited amount of triggers and actions are supported. Let me know which triggers/conditions/actions you would like to see the most!

The video below gives a walkthrough!
