Thought I’d drop a few lines to say hi and maybe kick off some conversation.
I’ve been dabbling on and off with ha ever since I first thought, wouldn’t it be cool if...
Littered around my house is a ragtag collection of many things ha related, whenever I’ve started looking at sorting something I hit a major problem or it hasn’t behaved how I needed it to and the project got put to one side.
Seeing the HE and its local nature prompted me to have another go.
Seems to me the backbone is what’s important, then I can make proper buying decisions and keep adding to the system, hopefully the HE will prove to be that backbone.
I have a Broadlink Pro and its smaller cousin, a Logitech harmony, a powered projector screen(RF remote), some powered blinds(Tuya based), a bunch of RF controlled light switches, Honeywell EvoHome heating, poe cctv cameras, Amazon echoes, fire sticks, google home hub and a couple of bits I can’t recall.
Anyway my goal is to have everything linked properly and controllable both home and away, I have an IFTTT account, amongst others and am not afraid of replacing something if it’s going to be an issue.
I guess first question would be is there a standard that would be recommended by the majority here for the lighting?
I’ve got some light switches with a neutral wire and the rest are standard UK switched live.
