Sorry, no support for actions and stats in visual config yet.

Typical example of using this card in YAML config would look like this:

type: 'custom:purifier-card'
entity: fan.purifier
stats:
  - attribute: filter_life_remaining
    unit: '%'
    subtitle: Filter Remaining
  - attribute: motor_speed
    unit: RPS
    subtitle: Motor Speed
actions:
  - name: Silent
    icon: 'mdi:weather-night'
    speed: Silent
  - name: 25%
    icon: 'mdi:circle-slice-2'
    speed: Favorite
    xiaomi_miio_favorite_level: 3
  - name: 50%
    icon: 'mdi:circle-slice-4'
    speed: Favorite
    xiaomi_miio_favorite_level: 7
  - name: 75%
    icon: 'mdi:circle-slice-6'
    speed: Favorite
    xiaomi_miio_favorite_level: 10
  - name: 100%
    icon: 'mdi:circle-slice-8'
    speed: Favorite
    xiaomi_miio_favorite_level: 14
  - name: Auto
    icon: 'mdi:brightness-auto'
    speed: Auto
show_name: true
show_state: true
show_toolbar: true
compact_view: false

Here is what every option means:

Name Type Default Description

entity string Required An entity_id within the fan domain.
show_name boolean true Show friendly name of the purifier.
show_status boolean true Show status of the purifier.
show_toolbar boolean true Show toolbar with actions.
compact_view boolean false Compact view without image.
aqi object Optional Custom entity or attribute for AQI value.

actions object Optional Custom actions for your purifier cleaner.

aqi object

Name Type Default Description
entity_id string Optional An entity_id with state, i.e. sensor.current_aqi.
attribute string Optional An attribute which should be used to get AQI value.
unit string Optional An unit of measurement to display.

stats object

You can use any attribute of purifier or even any entity by entity_id to display by stats section:

Name Type Default Description
entity_id string Optional An entity_id with state, i.e. sensor.purifier_aqi.
attribute string Optional Attribute name of the stat, i.e. filter_left.
unit string Optional Unit of measure, i.e. hours.
subtitle string Optional Friendly name of the stat, i.e. Filter.

actions object

You can define custom scripts for custom actions or add shortcuts for switching modes and speeds via actions option.

service string Optional A service to call, i.e. script.clean_air.
service_data object Optional service_data for service call
speed object Optional A speed to switch to, i.e. Auto, etc
xiaomi_miio_favorite_level object Optional A favorite level of the operation mode Favorite for Xioami Air Purifiers. speed is required with this option

The card will automatically try to figure out which one of actions is currently active. The action will be highlighted when:

  1. It’s a service.
  2. entity‘s speed attribute is equal to action‘s speed.
  3. entity‘s speed attribute and favorite_level is equal to action‘s speed and xiaomi_miio_favorite_level correspondingly.

Animations

I’ve added an animation for this card to make it alive:

How did I make this animation? It’s a long story…

  1. I took original gif file from here.
  2. Then I tweaked image levels to make the background black and purifier white.
  3. Then I inverted colors on the gif.
  4. Then I’ve split the gif by frame.
  5. Then I removed the background of the image frame by frame using remove.bg.
  6. Then I upscaled each of those images using icons8.com/upscaler.
  7. Then I put up all of those images back in a single gif.
  8. Profit!

Archive with images from all of these steps can be found here.

Supported models

This card relies on basic fan services, like toggle, turn_on, turn_off, etc. It should work with any air purifier, however I can physically test it only with my own purifier.

If this card works with your air purifier, please open a PR and your model to the list.
