Show Off Your HA Hardware

Seems a bit self-indulgent to setup a thread like this, but I'm certainly not here to gloat...

Obviously I am looking for inspiration for those who have achieved a nice, tidy, well cable-managed setup, although equally, those who have ended up where I am ...

I have my own ideas on what I plan to do, but would love to see people exchange ideas and photos of their own setup.

omglol! Well for a start, to give myself space to think, i'd have the excess cableage (no, not cabbage) behind that unit or table or whatever it is, out of sight!

That’s a lot of devices. I just have my Hubitat, Hue bridge and an old laptop. I was heading in your direction on an end table but then I decided to add a shelf at the top of the basement stairs. Moved the cable modem to the basement ceiling right by the electrical panel and ran a 50ft Ethernet cable to the router (reasoning, I had ethernet cables and ends around but not coaxial long enough). The laptop may eventually get replaced by a RPi but it works for now.

I keep everything in the garage on some shelves.

I have my devices with radio (Hubitat, Lutron, Hue) on the top shelf of my computer desk.

The rest are in the basement with the rest of my network gear.

Spot on @Inge_Jones, at least with my initial plans. For some time I have wanted to construct a wooden cabinet with all the nooks and crannies I want for running cables, ventilation, nicely finished with stain / lacquer, etc, both as a way to achieve what I want and an interesting project. But reality has sunk in and am thinking I will probably tidy up the cables and devices inside and on the back of the low-line entertainment unit.

My addiction has grown so quickly over only a few months, I really need to address the fire hazard behind my TV called Hubtown. Out of sight out of mind I guess. :fire_engine:

Pretty much everything in the cabinet, but Hubitat hub, Caseta pro, and Hue are all more centralized on POE.

This is my setup in my Florida apartment.
Partial network gear are behind the shelf.
