It’s been posted several times that a “newcomers”, “start here” or whatever document, post, or thread would be good. I am sure something will come about sooner rather than later.
Most Iris users are not exactly new to HA.
So the question is, should this documentation cover HA newbies with 1-5 devices or people transitioning from another platform with 50+ devices? Because I believe the latter is what Iris users are. The official documentation, videos, wiki threads, and forums in general will help the HA newbies with 1-5 devices.
I keep pointing to the official documentation and the wiki threads because they took me from my first device ever (plug outlet) to 50 devices without many issues.
And look at some of the complex rule chains some Iris users are asking for help with. This isn’t exactly newcomer type things.
The thing is this shows that with Iris users it isn’t trying to teach them to drive their first car... it’s trying to teach them how to drive a manual car after they have drove only automatic for years. The stress of having to move in such a short time and trying to do too much too fast makes things worse.
Example of this is Zwave inclusion and exclusion, it’s hard to help someone when they won’t read the official documentation covering it.
Me, myself would rather have the limited HE team to spend their time finishing Dashboard 2.0 and the mobile app. When the official docs, etc, etc cover the bases enough to get the ball rolling.
