The dashboard is the simplest way to interact with you projects. After you make a widget you can choose if you would like it displayed on your dashboard.
I also created my own webpage to control my lights with the look I wanted. As you can see below I also made a widget that will dim my bedroom lights. While I optimized this page to my liking, all that is required to have your own control page is to save the script in a text file and save it with an html extension.
