I’m having a bit of my kitchen redone so have the opportunity to implement a panel for my OH install. I’ve been trawling the forums for HABPanel and PAges examples and starting to get the picture.
I had an idea but cant seem to see if it is possible…
Is there a way for the panel to automatically pop up / go to a page on the changing state of an item?
Real life - when someone presses my doorbell, it triggers a switch item to ON, and I have a rule to announce the doorbell has been pressed etc.
Is there a way to then get the pages to show the door camera, (also an item), automatically? I’ve found ways that you can click on a widget in pages and get the camera to pop up, but it would be neat if it could do it automatically, and then ideally pop back down after x seconds / switch item sets OFF…
I think HABPanel has a way to switch to a given page based on the state of an Item. I don’t think MainUI supports that. But you might be able to get something to work using Tasker and AutoInput and possibly AutoNotification (assuming the tablet is Android). Then you could send a notification that Tasker picks up (via AutoNotification perhaps if stock Tasker can’t handle it) and triggers AutoInput to navigate to the desired page.
In MainUI it is possible to control the status of a popup, side panel or modal sheet with an item state. It is not possible, to my knowledge, to navigate to an whole new page. There are a few threads that discuss this, here’s one of them:
