Sorry if this has been asked and answered before… I searched but could not found any clear answer on this. Most threads is about using an tablet and a browser, which I do as well…
I wonder if I could make use of these spare Rpi 3B´s ´ve got, and then a 22" FullHD montiors connected to the monitor using HDMI. Then run some software unattended which will show happanel from my openhab server on the monitor in FullHD (full screen)?
The Rpi would have to run WiFi, but I guess thats not the main issue… The problem is the software to use and perhaps how to set it up. Since Im´no good at Linux I need some advice and howto on this one. I´m convinced it´s possible, and probably have already been done by someone.
Why I need it to show Habpanel is because I have created an SVG floorplan with several items for openhab… I would like this montior to become somekind of main-home-monitor of the house. Notice, its not suppose to be an controller of anykind, just a screen showing the habpanel (SVG).
This is an need to have feature, and therefore the main question.
A nice to have feature would be, if I could use this Rpi as an audio sink from the openhab server, and passing on voice TTS. (I´m using Google TTS). I know this would require speakers to the monitor or perhaps using the audio output of the Rpi.
Another nice to have feature would be, if this Rpi could be a chromecast device as well, and a Google Home device, so it could receive voice commands. But this is probably not an easy task, and most probably impossible. At least the Rpi would need an mic.
A way to handle this, is to install a Google Home device close to the screen, and it would sort this matter. This I intend to do for an start. (already got the spare Google Home device as well).
As mentioned, I´m convinced someone has already done something simular… I just cant find any threads about it. Hopefully someone knows or got ideas on how to.
