Here’s a good link with a few examples.

I like your theme (dark grery in the background) how you do that?

looks amazing @jimpower. Quick question; when you turn your lights off does it change on the image that you have shown i.e. of the house?

very nice!
how to get the dark border at the base of the pictures in the picture-elements cards ?

You make it yourself on the actual background picture, or you could use a transparent strip image as another element in the picture element, its up to you!

I made it myself using paint, the easiest way would be to use the image in a picture glance card and take a screen shot of that then use that as your background image :slight_smile:

Could you share your code regarding TV remote (numbers) interface.

Hi,

this is my approach to picture-elements:


All values are generated by Netatmo sensors.
Darker background under icons is realized with Photoshop.

Thank you for your reply. Last night I figured out this and implemented Harmony remote using picture-elements.

Here is the post.

Started to fiddle around with lovelace and wanted to share an image on how versatile the picture-elements card is for putting in a lot of information on a small footprint.

Here is “state cards” for me and my wife.
It’s really nice to be able to have multiple “layers” of images to mimic diffrent states.

Lovelace code for one of the cards:

id: home

Thanks for sharing! That one is great Copying straight away

That’s quite interesting, Thanks for sharing!

Would you mind also share the configuration for input_boolean.matte_charging and the battery images?

Also, for the proximity, did you had to create one per-person for the home zone? I guess so unless I am doing something wrong, if I set one proximity for home with both device track it just provides the closest one, not both, so presumambly (well, this is what I did), you need to create a proximity entity per persone for the “home” zone, right?

Cheers :slight_smile:
