I am Paulus Schoutsen and I work on privacy focused smart homes. I do this by building Home Assistant. I started the project in 2013 and now it's one of the most active open source projects in the world! Besides that I also work on ESPHome, ESP Web Tools, Improv Wi-Fi and more.

My work evolves mainly around keeping the many running. Reviewing contributions, working on the core architecture, documentation and fixing bugs.

If you enjoy what I am doing and want to support my effort, consider subscribing to Nabu Casa or becoming a sponsor!
