Add the following to the top of your UI configuration file.

Custom Lovelace Card Configuration
|show||string list||required||[motion, sound, snapshot, battery_level, signal_strength, captured_today, image_date]||all items are optional but you must provide at least 1|
|hide||string list||[title, status, date ]||Hide this information from the card.|
|top_title||boolean||false||Show the title at the top of the card|
|top_status||boolean||false||Show the status at the top of the card|
|top_date||boolean||false||Show the date at the top of the card|
|image_click||string||['play']||Action to perform when image is clicked. Remove attribute to play last recorded video when image is clicked.|
|door||string||entity_id||Useful if the camera is pointed at a door.|
|door2||string||entity_id||Useful if the camera is pointed at a door.|
To get the
show items (except
snapshot, which needs nothing) to work correctly you need to enable the corresponding
sensor. For example, to get motion notifications working you need the following binary sensor enabled:
binary_sensor: - platform: aarlo monitored_conditions: - motion
The following is my front door camera configuration. Please remember rename the
type: 'custom:aarlo-glance' entity: camera.aarlo_front_door_camera name: Front Door show: - motion - sound - snapshot - battery_level - signal_strength - captured_today - image_date top_title: false top_status: false top_date: false image_click: play door: binary_switch.front_door door_lock: lock.front_door_lock door_bell: binary_switch.aarlo_ding_front_door_bell door2: binary_switch.front_door door2_lock: lock.front_door_lock door2_bell: binary_switch.aarlo_ding_front_door_bell
You don't need to reboot to see the GUI changes, a reload is sufficient. And if all goes will see a card that looks like this:
Reading from left to right you have the camera name, motion detection indicator, captured clip indicator, battery levels, signal level and current state. If you click the image the last captured clip will play, if you click the last captured icon you will be show the video library thumbnails - see below. Clicking the camera icon (not shown) will take a snapshot and replace the current thumbnail. (See supported features for list of camera statuses)
Clicking on the last captured clip will display thumbnail mode. Clicking on a thumbnail starts the appropiate video. You can currently only see the last 99 videos. If you move your mouse over a thumbnail it will show you time of capture and, if you have a Smart subscription, a reason for the capture. > takes you to the next page, < to the previous and X closes the window.
See hass-aarlo for general Aarlo documentation.
