What did you build/automated today (with pictures)?

Great. I’m gonna check that out

Thanks! Post it as a separate thread in Tutorials and Solutions and it will get more notice.

ALL REGEX are crappy and poorly written. These are just fine and honestly, refreshingly easy to read.

not right now I don’t. hopefully soon

ok so bought allot of 433 door/window sensor, but even with the cheap price its seems overkill to put on each window (two some for some windows)
how can we improve? :slight_smile:

i found out that you can connect a bunch of them to the same sensor
the addon is something like 0.50 cents
, so where i have a number of windows, that i don’t really open something like roof windows, it can be really helpful for alream systems ,it will help me for sure

Same enhancement done here but I opted for a mechanical switch and attached a short screw and a roller. Here is a picture. Working well for over a year


Finally some tiles over the kitchen bench:

Got plenty of buttons on the wall now. :slight_smile:


This is insane. In EU those are 20€ each. Above are approx +100 of those. 2k€? You must have a cheaper source … tell me please.

102 to be exact. 34x3. 4 pwr supplies. Sorry, no cheap supply. Forked out, but great fun :slight_smile:

That’s a classic :slight_smile:

If you’re going to do something, do it BIG

Do I dare show the picture of your kitchen to the client I’m working with currently… Ummmm ???

that looks very cool.

Can they be wiped down? i.e. can I use them as a splashback (well) behind a stove?

That is GORGEOUS. You’ve given me an idea for the kitchen in the new house I’m building :-).

wow just wow can you do a video :slight_smile:

If you zoom in on the stove, you will see we have a sheet of glass behind our stove.
The tiles can we wiped down with a damp cloth, but guess they are IP20 only.
The fit between tiles is not water tight.

Also just order another sheet of glass for behind the sink.

@Gad_Ofir, will make a video when the current pile of dishes are done :slight_smile:

Go for it! :slight_smile:

Now here’s a thought…

Are touches still detected by the panels when they are behind the glass?

Tried it out just now, and to my surprise they are!
But only the part of the glass that make contact with the tiles.
On the right hand side, lower part I have a 1mm gap, and in that area they are not detected. Not surprisingly. The glass is 6mm, Optiwhite.
You have to press quite hard though, so a more natural place is the ones with the center just outside of the glass. I currently have 3 tiles assigned to wall on/off, Tiles behind stove to 100% or all to 30% and one for turning on or off the down-lights under the cupboards.
Note that a down-light licking straight down the tiles will not look good. But all gaps between the tiles disappear (visibly) as soon as the tiles are lit.

Now that’s an excellent answer.

Thank you for taking the time to experiment and document your findings. :+1:

Great idea with the tiles…reminded me of this…

Squid :squid:


Ah, screens. I like it. Maybe next time… :slight_smile:

I’ve just signed off a project for a client who is using openHAB2 as the UI for his entire home.

The back bone of the property uses Velbus hardwired modules, for timed events, lighting, heating, ventilation, window blinds, Sonos & architectural LED lighting control.

Strictly speaking, OH is remotely controlling 3 seperate LED controllers, but as far as his family is concerned, EVERYTHING is controllable from Velbus glass panels.

I thought you might like a sneaky peek at the really fancy stuff.

So here’s a video that shows the >7100 RGB pixels in all their glory.

I’ll do something more with the video in the future, but for now, just take a peek and see what can be done with a little bit of imagination and some amazing suppliers.

*** Update ***

I’ve made a short video of just the staircase if anyone is interested.

I’ll not be making a how to video, but I’m happy to arrange for stairs to be made to order.
