Ezlo Dashboard Alpha version

How you mean?

In the Imperihome app or in the new Ezlo dashboard ?

Here was a demo video of my Imperihome dashboards made 6 months ago now, so it has changed some what since.

Ezlo Dashboard

I haven’t got that far yet, the custom icons were not working.

And there is a bug where you now cannot select any devices or scenes from a Vera Plus.

Do you think we will ever see GUIs that look like these in Ezlo ?

Imperihome is good in terms or its functionality and ease of use.

And that would be a good starting point for you to reach feature parity with Imperihome.

However will you go above and beyond and allow users to create more professional looking GUIs ?

of course…even better…got very interesting ideas…

Yes!

OK that sounds promising.

In the short term I would be very happy with an Imperihome app replacement for my new Ezlo controller.

But if in time we could use some layouts and designs like these more professional looking GUIs and place our device buttons and scenes that would be awesome.

What plans do you have for Audio Visual devices ?

I think most Vera users will be using lower cost Logitech Harmony hubs or Broadlink RM Pro hubs to control their AV gear. Global Cache IR control as well I would think.

Personally I really need the current 3rd party Harmony plugin to be ported over to the Ezlo platform.

Obviously most of your users are in the budget DIY end of the market, we are not all rich and cannot afford high end AV control systems or HDMI matrix distribution devices, if we could then we wouldn’t be using Vera, we would be using Crestron, Control4, AMX and the likes etc.

Did you see the screen shots in this Home Remote thread ? Regarding AV device controls.

The Home Remote system automatically generated those remote control screens for my Logitech Harmony hub activities, I didn’t have to do anything, other than change a few button commands here and there. I just added my Harmony hub devices in to it and it did the rest which was very good and unexpected.

Also here I have tweaked an existing template I found for controlling Kodi Media Center PCs and I changed its look and design somewhat from the original template to match in with my theme.

I’m lost, do I have to use the dashboard app to build a dashboard in the Mios app? That can’t be true… I’m testing the Mios app and do run into issues but I have seen some nice lay-outs there. Can you please explain why there are two apps for having a dashboard. I expect the Mios app to do this on its own.
What Android version is required to use the apps? Edit I found it must be Android 8.1

Where have you seen these? You have a link? There are no nice layouts currently.

Seems at the moment you have three different places you can start to create your Ezlo dashboards.

  1. The “new” Mios App

Beta sign up here.

  1. The Ezlo Dashboard Configurator App

App links here.

  1. The web based version at: https://edash.mios.com

Then there is the “Dashboard Pro” dashboard which is something completely different again.

That can be seen in the Vera mobile app and also in the Mios app.

While creating a new dashboard in the Mios app you can select from different lay outs (similar to imperihome)

Hopefully they will expand on the available grid layouts and number of tiles on each layout, far too few currently.

Depends on your screen size, I think.
Only for larger (tablet) screens from 8" and up more icons is helpful.

Looks to me that current design is for phones only. Maybe the devteam can also take into account that tablets have larger screens.

Ezlo need far more page layout choices, what they have currently isn’t going to be good enough.

Here are the all the layouts in Imperihome and even then there was sometimes pages with not just the right amount of widget holder places.

Hi @cw-kid ,

Yes, we planned and decided to work on a flexible solution for all of us, but so far creating visually appealing structure is quite challenging, and we want to fix it with themes that can adjust itself for different screen sizes!

We started with 2 different modes and 15 square tiles at the beginning, then I decided to split each square by 4 to give us more resolution and flexibility but it didn’t solve the problem of having 4K screens for example!
Making it responsive is another solution but again it is opening possibilities of bad design decisions made by users, and then we stopped there.

Once we are done with virtual devices and cloud scenes, we will focus on tile customization again.

The Tile settings now appear to have been removed from the app and can no longer be accessed ?

Before I post my feedback, I guess I should ask if this thread applies to the Dashboard I just began trying out at https://edash.mios.com/?

If so, here goes:

  1. Looks fun, and I’m able to get as far as selecting an orientation (e.g. Portrait) and assigning a few devices to the tiles by clicking + and choosing from a list. No problem.

  2. BUT… when I click DONE (there is no “Save” button), it kicks me back to the “Select Dashboard Template” screen, from which I can proceed no further.

  3. Once (yesterday), all of the devices previously available on the Devices & Scenes lists vanished, leaving only “Amazon Alexa” to choose from.

Accordingly, with all these failures, I have not thus far been able to test out the actual Dashboard, but will try again in the future. Seems promising.

And if I’ve inadvertently posted this Feedback in the wrong thread, please ask an Admin to categorize it properly. I’ve honestly lots track of all the new apps and dashboards under development, with a litany of names (ezlo, mios, vera, etc.) that I’m unable to keep track of. So thanks!

Yes it does kinda, its all the same Nativescript dashboard they are developing.

There is another thread for the Web app but either of these threads will do.

When you have devices with the same name “Doorbell CAM Motion” in this case, that are on different controllers, there is no way to tell them apart in the dashboard configurator when attempting to add one to a tile.

One is on my Vera Plus with Vera firmware.

The other is on my Ezlo Plus.

I want to be able to mix and match devices and scenes from different controllers on to a single dashboard page.

Especially whilst we are migrating things over to the Ezlo platform from the Vera platform, as we will be in the situation where we have devices on both.

Also if some devices are not supported on the Ezlo platform, I am thinking about some plugin devices here, then those devices are likely to remain on the Vera Plus controller.

I have used the Android standalone Ezlo Dashboard Configurator app to create this dashboard page.

I have two devices from the Ezlo Plus and two devices from the Vera Plus.

In the Mios app when connected to the Ezlo Plus or when connected to the Vera Plus in the Settings - Dashboard Settings, I cannot see this new “Porch” Dashboard at all for selection to be displayed.
