It’s been a while since I did a blog post. I didn’t realise how long until I saw the last update! Well since May 2021, I’ve moved house, tweaked my technology stack and added some new bits.
This is what the house looks like now:
- Alexa – Voice Control
- Flic – Physical Control
- Home Assistant – The glue
The technologies now in use are:
|Plugs / Light Strips / HA Zigbee||Sonoff||Yes|
|Lights / Buttons / PIR||Hue||Yes|
|Heating||Tado / Tado TRVs||Yes|
|TV Remote||Logitech||No – EOL|
|Button / H&T / PIR||Shelly||Yes – Testing|
|Lights / Plugs||Kasa||Yes – Caravan|
|PIR||ESPHome||Yes – Limited|
|Christmas Lights / Bulbs||Tuya||Yes|
|Automation||SmartBot||Yes – Limited|
|Ambilight||Govee||Yes – Limited|
|AirCon||Sensibo||Yes – Limited|
Everything is currently working well and there are very few issues.
In time I will write another post about some of the technologies and routines that I now have. Including the whalesong motion sensor when you’re in the cloakroom!
