A lovely new login web page

The login web page of Residence Assistant has been redesigned to be extra fashionable and
match the
latest redesign of the Residence Assistant onboarding.

When Residence Assistant detects you might be accessing it through your native dwelling community,
it means you might be in your trusted dwelling atmosphere; you may be greeted by this
lovely new login web page, which resembles how most platforms, like Home windows,
macOS, Netflix, and others, deal with this: by displaying your person profiles.

Additionally it is a lot smarter! It really works seamlessly with trusted networks,
and when dwelling, we routinely keep in mind your login. So, no extra forgetting
to verify the “hold me logged in” checkbox. 👊

In fact, when logging in from exterior your private home community, we are able to’t do that
as that will give away privacy-sensitive details about your system
and who’s in it. So, if you end up exterior of your private home community,
the login web page will ask on your username and password, similar to earlier than.

Oh! And now you can change the language straight from the login web page! 🌍

New design for the thermostat card

Residence Assistant 2023.9 launched
a beautiful new entity dialog for thermostat entities. On account of that, many
have been asking for the same design for the thermostat card. Properly, right here it’s!

There may be nothing you must do to make use of this new card. When you improve to this
launch, the thermostat card will routinely use this beautiful new design.

We took it one step additional and added help for options. Options are
further performance which you could add to a card, beforehand solely obtainable
for the tile card. This launch provides help for options to the
thermostat card as properly!

For the thermostat card, it permits you to add HVAC mode buttons and presets.
By default, these options are hidden, giving it the cleanest look doable.

Oh! The identical design has been utilized to the (de)humidifer card, in fact,
together with its respective tile options 😎.

Screenshot showing the same styling has been applied to the humidifier card.

Numeric enter function for tile playing cards

The tile card may be very highly effective, and @JosephAbbey
is even extending it this launch by including a brand new “numeric enter” function.

The numeric enter function works with all quantity entities and quantity helpers.
It permits you to management the quantity entity from the tile card immediately
and gives the selection to make use of it as a slider or as an enter with up/down

Screenshot showing two tile cards, one showing the button variant, the other displaying a slider.

Choices for the default dashboard

The default dashboard now has choices that can mean you can change its conduct.
Now you can configure the default dashboard to cover sure areas,
disguise entities that don’t belong to an space, and the choice to cover the
power abstract card.

Screenshot that shows the new options available for the generated default dashboard.

When choosing Areas, you possibly can select to cover the areas but in addition change
the show order of the areas by dragging them round.

A primary step in making the dashboards configurable, however above all,
it provides you extra management over the default dashboard, particularly when you’ve
simply began with utilizing Residence Assistant.

When including a brand new dashboard, we added a dialog much like those we present
whenever you create new automations or scripts. It provides you the choice to begin
with an empty handbook dashboard or create a brand new default dashboard.

Screenshot that shows the new dialog you get presented when creating a new dashboard.

Historical past dashboard displaying long-term statistics

The historical past dashboard did get some love from @karwosts this launch; he
added an enormous enchancment to all the graphs proven there.

Beforehand, the graphs would solely present the state historical past, restricted to a couple days,
till the info is eliminated. This isn’t at all times very helpful, for instance,
whenever you need to look again additional in time.

@karwosts got here up with an answer for this, and the historical past dashboard now
combines the state historical past with the recorded long-term statistics to supply
insights into the previous.

Screenshot showing a history graph over a longer period of time.

The precise and darker a part of the graph line is offered by the state historical past
(like earlier than), and the long-term statistics present the left and lighter half
of the graph line (and is thus downsampled hourly knowledge).

When you have manually modified the days to maintain earlier than purging
recorder in your system, think about eradicating that customization. With the
long-term statistics and new function, you almost certainly don’t want it anymore,
leading to a smaller database and, thus, sooner and smaller backups.

Extra to-do!

The primary iteration for help for to-do lists was added within the final launch,
and there was continued work on this function on this launch.

Initially, there are two new companies obtainable. A much-requested service
to record all objects on a to-do record
and a useful service to take away all accomplished objects from a to-do record.

It’s good to see integrations including help for the to-do record function.
For instance, the CalDAV integration now helps including to-do objects to your
CalDAV server, and with Picnic and OurGroceries now you can handle your
procuring record. Within the case of Picnic, it would even lookup the product you add
of their retailer to your procuring record and add the product to your procuring cart.

Additionally, when viewing a to-do record from the Residence Assistant interface,
you possibly can copy/paste or bookmark the URL, which can at all times deliver you again
to the identical one—a small however very useful enchancment.

Re-import blueprints

This launch provides the flexibility to re-import the blueprint from the supply from
which you initially imported it. The newly downloaded blueprint will overwrite
the present blueprint, offering a easy “replace” function for blueprints.

For those who use Blueprints, for instance, those
created by our unimaginable neighborhood,
you might need seen that whenever you import a blueprint, it won’t replace
when the creator updates it. The one choice you had was to manually modify the
YAML of the blueprint to make it match the most recent model revealed
by the creator. To make this final bit simpler, we added this re-import capability.

Screenshot showing that the overflow menu of a blueprint now provides the option to re-import an blueprint.

A useful function that can make it simpler to maintain your blueprints in
sync with the most recent model revealed by the blueprint creator.
