Home Automation- @home_assistant

On my previous post I mentioned that I was going to try OpenHab …Hmmmm
I did but gave up quite swiftly ! I just couldn’t invest in the effort to switch over and so I have returned to Home Assistant.  At the time I was having issues with MQTT and switches, updates just seemed to break my setup but after one of the updates and me trying out Arendst’s Sonoff-Tasmota firmware things settled down. I am now a big fan of Arendst ‘s firmware.
I had initially been using the Energenie MiHome hub and sockets but I have started to replace them with Sonoff devices, S20 sockets and a Dual controlling the fishtank Pump and lights. The Energenie devices are just unreliable and slow, there can be up to 30’s delay on changing state and as I had added more ( I did have 6 sockets ) about 30% of the time some of them just didn’t trigger.
Home Assistant is quite active Updates are very frequent so some times it can be a mildly irritating when trying out the latest changes, like the Automation editor changes! I converted mine following Ben @BRUHautomation ‘s youtube vid but a lot of them just didn’t convert well,some of them having empty values, so as to not upset Mrs Page28 too much I have gone back to the original versions and will wait a while for it to mature. Personally I don’t think having to format Json strings into a GUI frontend editor is good ! Just add it in the background or have a drag n drop element approach !
One Hit in the Household is the Hue PIR sensor for the Dim and dingy kitchen stairwell, Immediate positive feedback 🙂
I have also built an esp8266 PIR sensor using Mertenats code and put my 3d printer to good use…

I also plan on using more of these Yunshan relays and using Arendst’s Sonoff-Tasmota but changing the sonoff_template.h to include it.
