Smart Home = Home Assistant
|In the meantime, you can always take a look at my other HA config repository and give it a
You will probably think, what is Home Assistant!? Well Home Assistant is a open source home automation platform that puts local control and privacy first. Powered by a worldwide community of tinkerers and DIY enthusiasts. Perfect to run on a Raspberry Pi or a local server.
To inspire others I have set up this github and update it regularly with new code. Be free to use code from this repo for your own Home Assistant environment, keep in mind that you can not always copy everything line by line. If you can not get out, you can always contact me.
This is by the way not my first Home Assistant configuration that you can find on Github. Since this year I have a second Home Assistant installation, you can read all about it on the website www.student-techlife.com and you can find the configuration/repository here on Github.
Recently I switched from a raspberry pi 3B+ to an Intel NUC. I noticed that the Pi for my house was no longer powerful enough to run all processes. That is why I invested in an Intel NUC at Christmas 2018, which is now smoothly running after a long transition in the 2018-2019 Christmas holiday. I also switched from hassbian to Home Assistant - Supervised in docker.
My HA Server
Below my server setup on which I run Home Assistant:
- Intel Baby Canyon NUC7i5BNH - Inside it 16GB Ram, 500GB SSD and running Ubuntu Server LTS.
- Using the Hass.io installation.
- Aeotec USB Z-Stick - Z-Wave Plus
- Deconz - Conbee 2
- RFXCOM RFXtrx433E
- P1 cable
Curious about what kind of hardware I have in my Home Assistant system? I have a list: Check it out (Last update: 30 April 2020).
Grafana gas/energy consumption dashboard
I have built my own dashboard in grafana for my gas and energy consumption, which I can call through an iframe panel in Home Assistant. If you want to know more about this, take a look here.
Every Sunday at 3:00 am an automation makes a snapshot of my installation. In the past it happened that the sd card of my Pi became corrupt and I lost everything. That's why this backup is also made locally on my Synology NAS automatically and this is fully automated. (Inspired by: @adonno)
Apps to control
Nothing is better than being able to control your own smart home from your phone or tablet.
