@kelbot Exactly. I feel like a lot of home automation was dreamt up for a studio apartment in SF, not for roommates/ spouses/ kids/ the internet being down 🙃
Sounds like you have a good plan. Eventually it is possible to get everyone on-board. For me it took "dial M on the rotary" which sets the movie scene in the living room.
@kelbot Moslty lighting automation based on times and my location. I’ve also got a bunch of little homemade buttons to control everything.
I try to set everything up so I never have to use Home Assistant directly for controlling anything. If it’s more cumbersome than flicking a light switch someone will and break the system.
@kelbot Home Assistant is great! I've been running it for years.
They're doing an excellent job of making everything easy.
Found a draft post about a project I've been working on for 8 months. I really need to get better at documenting these projects in *real time*.
