Home Assistant Config by ntalekt

Be sure to ⭐️ my repo so you can keep up to date on the progress!

This is my Home Assistant configuration which is running on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Hassbian. When starting with home automation I found many well documented configurations and drew inspiration from them in order to achieve my automation goals. I wanted to share my success with the community and hopefully help others on their journey.
