Im trying to be a little more involved in the Openhab forums.
I started with openhab since last year, so im using it for around 1-1.5 years.
I had no idea how to use code and how to make things with soldering etc.
My father in law introduced me to openhab and helped me to code and to learn how to solder.
Since then a learned alot and i am proud of my setup nowadays. So i like to show all off you my setup.
This is my Wall Mounted Tablet:
This is my sitemap:
I choose to use a Kiosk app for the tablet and display the sitemap trough the URL.
In my opinion the openhab app doesnt look as clean as this. I hope in the future it will look better.
BTW im a big fan of the sitemap in Openhab, HABPANEL looks (for me) very chaotic. The sitemap is much more cleaner for me.
When walking in front of the tablet it goes on automatically trought the front camera that detects movement.
I used little trics (Like visibitlity) in my sitemap to keep it clean.
When spotify is playing there appears more settings and the album cover.
This also helps with HTML images that dont work outside your house when youre on the cloud connector. I used visibility option in sitemap on those images connected to my presence item. So when presence is off, those images disappear.
I use the lights scenes alot, i have a small studio and the tablet is in the center of my house.
So when i go cooking or need big lights the tablet is the first thing closest to me to turn the lights on or off.
When leaving home or coming home i use a presence item to turn everything on and off.
I use the ARP bindings for this so Openhab knows when my and my girlfriends phone connected or lost connection with the router.
Because of that i have no need to turn any button, i just leave my home and after 4 minutes (expire item) everything turns off (Computer, tv and all the lights)
Hardware i use:
- TRADFRI smart lights, movementsensor and hub (Ikea)
- SONOFF Basic and Wall contacts (Soldered and put ESP program on it to use them with MQTT)
- WLED Led strips (New kind of ledstrip soldered on Wemos D1 to control every led)
- Google Home Mini (Almost dont use this anymore because of the walltablet)
- WITTY boards with DH22 sensors to see temp, humidity and light in house)
- Chromecast binding
- Exec binding
- Expire binding
- HTTP binding
- MQTT binding (1x)
- Network binding
- NTP binding
- Samsung TV binding
- Spotify binding
- TRADFRI binding
- Wake-on-LAN WOL binding
- Weather binding
The next steps in my project are:
- Temperature control (Still not sure how to implement this cause im in a rented place)
- Doorsensors (to make the Presence group more smarter)
I hope you guys liked my introduction of my system.
If there are questions about coding feel free to ask.
Here are some more pictures of my home and system

Added Custom CSS code into sitemap:
Added grafana graphs for home sensors:
