I have smarthings with 20 light switches/dimmers, main door lock, 5 motion sensors, garage doors, 2 ecobee thermostats, etc.
[not relevant for the question here] I also have harmony , rachio irrigation controller.
I also have a few google home mini but they are just for fun. My definition of home automation is that I don’t have to click or say something to make it happen otherwise it defeats the purpose. So, there are motion sensors and schedules set to do things automatically.
I am planning to install a power meter, a water meter, water shutoff with leak sensors and some security cameras.
My question: I would like to put a nice big screen of TV (may be 32 inches) in the hallway that will be visible from kitchen and living room. This is not a touch screen TV and I don’t care about people clicking on stuff to turn them on or off (there are plenty of switches/buttons and google home for that). My main goal is to show charts and “information” for power consumption, water consumption, status of garage doors (if it can be a picture, the better), locks and several other things. What does everyone use to show a hi-tech interface? ActionTiles/SmartTiles is one option but it does not look that impressive for what I am trying to do (may work great for a small tablet). The snappier it can look with colorful charts and widgets, the better!
Is anyone doing something similar? I run a small 24x7 windows server and I am open to installing something there, if needed, for this project.
