As smart home systems continue to evolve, Reddit user PostAvocado recently shared an interesting project - a 10-inch Home Assistant E-Ink Dashboard. This project uses Bigme inkNote Color+ Lite as the display (10.3-inch E-Ink Kaleido 3 panel), runs the Android system, and achieves seamless connection with the home automation system by installing the Kiosk Browser and Home Assistant applications.
This Dashboard from PostAvocado not only blends into the home environment with its low-key design and e-ink technology, but also integrates a series of smart home control functions through careful configuration and personalization. As a whole-house control center, it not only allows users to directly monitor and control smart devices in the home, such as smart light bulbs, smart sockets, temperature controllers, etc., but also creates various automation scenarios based on the user's living habits and needs. For example, set a "go home mode". When the system senses that the user has returned home, it will automatically adjust indoor lighting, temperature, and even play favorite background music to create a comfortable home environment.
In addition, this Dashboard also has an environment-aware lighting adjustment function. When someone uses the dashboard in a dark corridor, the lights in the corridor will automatically brighten for better reading of information. It can also display real-time data from various smart devices in the home, such as indoor and outdoor temperature, humidity, air quality, etc., allowing users to understand the status of their home at any time and make adjustments as needed.
PostAvocado's creativity not only improves the practicality and aesthetics of home automation systems, but also demonstrates his personal enthusiasm and creativity for technology applications. This project provides valuable reference and inspiration for DIY enthusiasts who are also passionate about home automation.
