Add Your SmartThings Devices to DAKboard!

We’re excited to announce our new integration with Samsung SmartThings, allowing you to display the status and info from almost any connected smart home device on DAKboard!


To get started, add a new “SmartThings” block to your custom screen. Edit it and link your SmartThings account if necessary. Then, select the devices and sensors you’d like to see up on DAKboard:

Add a single sensor per block, or combine any number of devices and sensors in a block. Optionally set a title and a background in the “Formatting” tab to add additional information and styling!

  1. the ability to see the status of Samsung Smart Appliances would be a game changer for me. I’ve heavily invested in their ecosystem and being able to put that on a smart display would probably be the thing that finally gets me to go full in on a DAKboard centric display.

  2. It’s no good if you cannot tell what sensor you’re looking at. Have I missed something during setup? I added 3 different contact sensors and it gives the status but not the name of each particular one.

    1. Hi, we don’t have a way to label individual sensors yet. In the meantime, you could add each sensor to its own block and then set the block name for each block.

  3. Hi, just had a look at DAKboard as a family calendar. Looks sweet and super simple to get started with!

    One thing that disturbs me though is that both me and my wife is invited to several events and hence they show up multiple times the same day. Ever thought about “stacking” identical events? Would be a great feature!

  4. Is it possible to incorporate data from other sources, such as temperature sensors being read by an ESP8266, Arduino or Raspberry Pi?
    I’ll go Pro if this is possible. I’m currently using Blynk, but that is only for Android and IOS platforms.
