I just learned about MySensors a few days ago and am finding it to be an interesting project. What caught me was a youtube post where someone built an 8 channel sprinkler controller with a display. I am thinking of trying a few things as I have some spare arduino mini's, 3 volt regulators and NRF modules in my parts bin. In my reading on this, I saw something that said that sensors can relay information to other sensors in the network. One thing I hadn't seen in the "Build" section of the site was anything on LCD displays. If the sensors can send information back and forth between themselves, it seems logical that one would have LCD displays in the network to be able to view sensor information in different places. There are plenty of graphical display shields as well as the popular 44780 based character displays out there, that it seems these would be a good fit for this project.
IF this is already in development, my apologies. As mentioned, I have only been looking at the project for a couple days.
Welcome @dbemowsk, great to have you here!
The only things in the build section with a screen are display and time and scene controller but there are several nice projects in the forum:

The project I saw on youtube that led me here was this one:
In this project the user had used a 44780 based backlit LCD with an I2C module attached. I like some of the ones that you have like the in wall LCD switch/scene controller. That looks pretty promising and looks like it could be adapted for other things.
Thanks for the links. I am going to have to try some of these things out.
The comments on Youtube link to https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/153/irrigation-controller-up-to-16-valves-with-shift-registers where you'll find a lot of discussion. Happy reading
