Welcome to dingus.dk

On these pages I will 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. I am not going to translate all the older posts on the website, so use google translate and see if it makes sense.

IHC Viewer for Home Assistant

May 10, 2018

This is a custom component for Home Assistant that will give you a tree view of the IHC project directly within Home Assistant. You can expand the tree and get the resource ids to be used for manually configuring your IHC setup in HA.

NOTE: The IHCViewer component does not work in the newer HA releases – a function to add custom panels has been removed, and I have not had the time to find out how to do this another way. (IF anybody know please tell)

Improved MAXCube support in Home Assistant

May 10, 2018

I have made a pull request to Home Assistant with the option to configure the update interval for MaxCube. It should be include in the next HA release. (Or you can get it from github if you can’t wait)

I have been using this now for about 2 months, and not had any issues with reset of MaxCube (See my previous description of MaxCube) I have been using an update interval of 5 minutes.
