Special thanks to @WyzeDave for taking the time to answer questions from people (even if you ignored all the highly upvoted questions about the Home Assistant Integration already having most of the work done for you already, so there should be no reason not to just copy the opensource code and make it official and fully functional :slight_smile: ).

I totally agree with your sentiment. This takes a lot of work, and is very thorough. @carverofchoice is amazing.

Thanks guys. I saw how useful the last one I did was for a lot of the mods/mavens to use as a reference to other people with helping out the community’s questions (you guys do awesome work, consider this a part of my thank you to you all for all you do to keep this a good environment).

It definitely is a lot of work to compile it all, but thankfully I can do a lot of copy and pasting to help make it easier and more accurate (I’m not typing it all out thankfully). :slight_smile: Then I try to rearrange some of the answers to be semi-organized and near other similar answers. I’m sure others could’ve improved the organization a lot better, but I figure the important parts are all there: 1) exactly what Dave said, 2) Link to the original source 3) some slight context regarding what he was responding to. -I also like having these things as a reference here in our favorite forum much more than having to go over there. I do still appreciate the gratitude. :slight_smile:

@WyzeDave Dave, for the love of all that is good in the world, PLEASE add app-wide Landscape Mode support for tablets (iPad in my case). The natives are restless, as you can see in this thread. I was one of your very first customers (Jan '18) and brought the issue up very early on, primarily due a disability that makes it extremely difficult to continually rotate my iPad 90°. Others with attached keyboards, etc., need Landscape support for different reasons. Thanks.

Thanks for this. I read an article on this last night but couldn’t find it this morning.
