If just status, there is the Magic Mirror 2 device which you could configure to use the MQTT Floor Plan module to show devices and their status. You can build this as just a display and use it to show pictures instead of making it a two way mirror.

    I believe you want more than status, but figured I would mention this option since you stated status at a glance above. It is not off the shelf either, so I recognize it is a long shot.
    You are right, I'm trying to find or make a device which I can use to control, but the controls will be configurable from HS, i.e. (but with hard buttons)

    [QUOTE=risquare;n1415517]Elon Musk just demonstrated early stage brain implant so the evolution is clear
    I have now GH appliances all over including outdoors. iPhone app doubles as and if needed. For me the keypads and framed tablets on the walls are things from the past.
    /QUOTE]

    I have 7 GH (3 of them in main living room) - still I need a device to see the status at glance, and for kids/wife/guests.

    Keypad
    Touchscreen
    Voice
    Brain

    So HS9 will be controlled by brain. I personally went through the first three in the same order in the past 15 years. I have now GH appliances all over including outdoors. iPhone app doubles as and if needed. For me the keypads and framed tablets on the walls are things from the past.

    Hi, it is from Amazon,
    $74 android 10. I had few others tablets that I tried, but software version didn't work with HS.
    Let me know if you need more info.
    Best regards

    Previous attempt worked fine, but tablet started acting up and touch screen was not responding. Will post pictures shortly.

    We have CBus lighting and eDLTs (pictured in your original post) . Ironically MQTT is used to interface CBus with HS in both directions. It works very well and is reliable (see cgateweb on GitHub) . I have some 'virtual' CBus groups that are used to control zwave devices as well as triggering events/scenes etc. Basically CBus and MQTT achieve most of what you are asking for in your OP, as well as allowing HS to control our lighting, blinds, skylights, extraction fans and our heating system via CBus thermostats.

    Switches are a different thing. I use a lutron system that is tied into HS, but the switches are nice to have, esp when if HS runs into a problem. I like a system where essential functions can run in a non-automated mode as a failsafe, but can be fully integrated into automation for both status and control. As someone said recently, automation isn't about remote control, but integration of sensors and actions...
    Yeah, that's the idea - the switch should be self-contained (non-automated) - but HS will receive the events, will change the button labels (or/and icons) depending on scene.
