Smart Home


I started my smart home in 2015 by purchasing a couple of GE Link bulbs and their hub at Home Depot. I mounted my tablet on the wall and created a floor plan screen using the Tasker app for Android. Next I added motion sensors and comeras. In 2016 I stumbled on Home Assistant. It is an open source project with goals of integrating itself with as many products and services as possible while still keeping it simple enough of a program that no programming experiece is required. I started basing my new smart device buying decisions on what works with Home Assistant and as a result, currently literally every smart device I own works with Home Assistant. This gives me a lot of freedom and flexibility. Almost anything you can think up can be done with Home Assistant or it's add-ons.
