Thinking about getting my dad something smart home related.
Some background info:
He's very receptive to new tech.
He was at Berkeley in the 60s. If you know, it should tell you attitude towards things like Alexa. He has a Model S and specifically no Auto Pilot.
Anyway, my parents just had a massive solar panel installation done and he's a retired electrical engineer so he loves majorly geeking out over stats and so forth.
I was thinking about actually getting him a hub. How do those with solar/alternative energy integrate? Definitely not at all going to be full smart home but I'm sure he would love automation of Tesla charging, automation of pool pump, energy monitoring, and configuration of some lights and things like that when they are out of the country (retired life).
