This card uses the Material 3 theme D06, TealBlue

This card shows you some possibilities to apply JavaScript to the animations section

The card seems like a standard, simple card, but isn't due to some Home Assistant functionalities and the possibilities of using either an icon or an entity picture for the person.

The use of JavaScript to fetch the zone's Icon, to do some state dependent color changes and taking care of the "use entity_picture yes/no" setting are nice examples of the possibilities that JavaScript adds to tools. It are just a few lines, but very powerful!

It also takes care of fetching the icon of additional zones (ie not the home zone).
