After problem upgrading to v0.65, I moved my Home Assistant (HA) to docker. Trying to upgrade in virtual environment (VE) was giving an error message that i needed Python 3.5.3.
It’s about a year ago since i wrote about a panic button setup with the Fibaro Button and Telldus/Tellstick. As I moved my Z-wave devices to Home Assistant, the Button scenes hasn’t been supported and therefore my button has been put away until now.
I recently bought an IKEA Trådfri gateway and some bulbs. This was a great and cheap supplement for automating my last missing lights. I have two ceiling lights in my hallway. I bought a Double Switch from Fibaro, but it’s a tight fit behind the switch on the wall. Buying two new separate relays for each light would cost too …
One of the main reasons for getting into more advanced smarthome, was smoke detectors. I was looking for a control panel for smoke detectors that could notify me if anything triggers, and especially if something triggers in my rental apartment. I ended up with Fibaro smoke sensor (FGSD002) and Home Assistant (HA).
Home Assistant is probably the most flexible and powerful smart home-gateway at this moment!
I found this: https://github.com/glynhudson/leaf-python-mqtt, and thought it was a simple task… But nooooo. I have very little experience with MQTT, other than the basics, so this took some time 🙂
