Welcome to dingus.dk

On these pages I write a bit about my various electronics/computer projects and other fun stuff. I started writing in Danish on this website, but since I am mostly getting response from non Danish readers, I am going to switch to English.

Home Assistant IHC Viewer – not “just” a viewer anymore

February 16, 2021

The Home Assistant IHC viewer version 2.0 has had a lot of changes:

  • Most importantly, it can now be used to add/remove manual setup of entites. (no more manual editing of the ihc_manual_setup.yaml file)
  • It support multiple controllers.
