Making my home smarter

I have taken a real interest in smarthome technology the past years, it's very exciting to see my programming reach real life things. I recently moved to a new house and needed a new hub. So I've setup a home assistant hub at home and created this new dashboard in react. And yes, these buttons actually work! It's still a work in progress and the buttons will be more relevant in the future, this dashboard is still just a test, and I'll have different dashboards for different screens at a later point.

Mixing Home Assistant with API's

In addition to showing statuses of items at home, I have also added useful api's like the local weather and Ruters api. This makes having a screen in the entry of my home very useful, as I can see when the next subway leaves or if I need to bring an umbrella.
