Home Assistant ConfigurationAnchorage House -
This repo contains the working Home Assistant configuration for Anchorage House. Below are links to the devices currently being used, blog posts, and other HA enthusists that provided inspiration and configs to help build this config. All of the code is free to use.
This is V4 of my config.
Major Changes in v4:
- Moved to Lovelace UI
- Started migrating to packages to better organize sensors, scripts, and automations
- Continued work to streamline the config
- Anchorage House now tweets throughout the day - @anchoragehouse2
- Due to a required garage door opener replacement the GoControl ZWave Garage Opener has been replaced with Chamberlain MyQ
General Information about Anchorage House
Hassbian is the flavor of Home Assistant powering Anchorage House. Currently it is running on a RaspberryPi 3. I also have a Ubuntu Server that handles running some other things like my 433mhz data collection, and Splunk for Home Assistant data analytics. And Smartthings is currently is used as a dumb hub handling most of the zwave and zigbee devices.
The old configurations are stored in branches for anyone that wants to see the previous iterations. However, the only branch guaranteed to work with the current version of Home Assistant is master.
Read about the continuing work to automate everything over on my blog. But be warned, it really hasn't been updated in a while. Feel free to reachout if you have questions. I love this stuff.
One last thing. Everything in this configuration is a combination of the things I want out of a home automation system flavored with the inspiration from other using Home Assistant. In some cases I took someone else's idea and made it my own, or I just completely stole it. So I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge those that inpired this journey. If you like what you see here, please checkout their configs as well. I owe them thanks for sharing their work.
