Unsolved Ext-screen switch on off a smartplug of home assistant?
First of all… what an amazing project! I really like it! This really helped me with the Magic Mirror!
So now i use it for me and my family! And i really live it!
Anyway! I have got a question. I use for my setup a raspberry pi and a old lcd computer monitor. The module really works great! It stop outputing the screen… but in case of climate etc etc. I think it is maybe also good idea to turn of the monitor. So i bougt a cheap smartplug. That i also want to connect to my Home Assistant setup. But nevertheless Is there a way that i can switch this smartplug (directly or maybe via home assitant) so i can also switch of the monitor itself?
Thanks in advance!
Hi, I have no solution actually.
EXT-Screenis not really ready for this
but it’s broadcast
EXT_SCREEN-POWERto all others modules
Maybe it’s a way to read this notification and send instruction to HA with API
Ho bugs! That is quite a good idea! I can make this api call myself (i gues haha) but maybe can you help me with the (other modules to read) or pinpoint me to some sample code ( i am not that good of a coder :S . But most of the time i think to diffivult about stuff.) Thanks in advance!
Kind regards! P.s. i really enjoy your work! It is nice!
(I also connected with an other module Home Assistant to the screen. So i can see some parameter like temperature on the screen!!)
