Sonoff NSPanel by ITead - Smart Scene Wall Switch based on ESP32 and custom Nextion Touch Screen Panel Display (non-Pro variant)

Hi Claire, yes in Oz, and no - just using the standard forecast sensor that is installed by default by HASS.

I’m having the same issue. The main weather shows fine but none of the forecast. Hope that API gets updated soon.

I have this resolved now, the idea - smile slowly - first ensure your sensor is working. Note I changed the template to update each minute as seen below, will return this to hour later. So I can see changes, I commented out # forecast, and set the state, temperature, temperature_unit to a string.

#NSPANEL MOD for weather
- trigger:
    - platform: time_pattern
      minutes: /1
    - service: weather.get_forecasts
        type: daily
        entity_id:                                         # change to your weather entity
      response_variable: daily
    - name: Weather Forecast Daily
      unique_id: weather_forecast_daily
      state: "{{states('')}}"                                         # change to your weather entity in this line
        temperature: "{{state_attr('', 'temperature')}}"              # change to your weather entity
        temperature_unit: "{{state_attr('', 'temperature_unit')}}"      # change to your weather entity
        forecast: "{{ daily[''].forecast }}"                             # change to your weather entity

When I could see the Entity in Dev Tools >> States as ‘sensor.weather_forecast_daily’ I then enabled states and Reloaded All YAML, when this showed correctly I enabled temperature and so on.

If you go to his Github ([BUG] HA 2024.4 - cannot display forecast properly · Issue #1209 · joBr99/nspanel-lovelace-ui · GitHub) you will see what the sensor should look like.

Then add the sensor to the panel and the world should be beautiful.

OK - got it working on my end … and totally my fault …

I forgot to do the required directory change and update of Appdaemon stuff …

Once I did the below … all returned to normal

follow instructions in here

Thanks for the confidence to keep troubleshooting. My issue was also my fault. I already had a template entry in my config file and had double entries. Somehow I missed the error in studio code the first time around. DOH.


there is now available 12VDC backplate for NSPanel: Smartavan 12VDC backplate for Sonoff NSPanel



anyone here can help me out please ?

when adding this line: app_dir: /homeassistant/appdaemon/apps
to the appdaemon.yaml my nspanel stops working.
yes the nspanel files are in this folder but it doesn’t work.
Getting all kind of weird appdaemon errors like:

Hello Everyone,

I am a self confessed noob at templates and I know I have the wrong syntax below.

But can someone help me with the right coding to display the sunrise time on the screen. The string works in the developer tools.

      - type: cardEntities
        title: Weather
          - entity: sensor.sun_next_rising
            name: Sunrise
            value: {{ as_timestamp(states.sun.sun.attributes.next_rising) | timestamp_custom ('%H:%M %p') }}

Some guys at NSPanel HA Blueprint figured it out, works with any esphome config :slight_smile:

16MB PSram can now be pretty useful for BLE and stuff.



Also still preferring and using the stock UI, now it has a black wallpaper option as well to use.

A 1-color background would be quite easy to implement. And even if we want 3 or 4 different colors. :wink:

By the way, I’m one of those guys who set the PSRAM… Finally. :wink:

Hi all,

I’ve installed the NSPanel in my room and set it up as a termostat. Now I see, that turning heating on (relais 1 or 2) increases the sensor temperature, without the room temperature is changed (device is getting hotter?).
After heating is off the temperature normalizes again (device cools down).

Is there anything I can do about it? I don’t want to use external sensors, as this may not be reliable…
