LCD Widget

Cool little “Always-on” dashboard.

We recently got a new addition to the family - a Bearded Dragon for our son’s Birthday. Little “Spike” is a cool dude, but kinda picky about the temperature of his vivarium.

I added some Xiaomi Zigbee temperature sensors to his enclosure, and wanted a quick and easy way to check the temperature without having to get my phone out.

These little temperature displays grab information from Home Assistant and display it on the woodwork of his tank. Awesome!

What’s more awesome is that the screens only cost me about £2.50. Add a wemos D1 Mini at £1.50, some wire and a 3D printed enclosure and this is a pretty cheap display!
